We are delighted to welcome Joanna back to Fulbourn – some of you will remember her previous sell-out concerts for us. She has performed her jazz influenced music all over the world and supported world-class artists. She has also performed live on Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour. As well as performing her own and other terrific songs, Joanna has been a singing teacher for 12 years, and is a vocal coach on Anglia Ruskin’s music and performing arts degree course. She is the coach behind the success of International Star Sam Smith who she taught from when he was 10 years old – he has since become the highest selling debut artist in the US since records began.

If you haven’t heard Joanna before, do come to hear her beautiful voice.

Tickets: £12 from David and Sylvia Cottee on 01223 880616 or fulbournarts@gmail.com

Dear All,

In October the Apple Pressing Day and the Litter Pick attracted good attendance, pressing almost 200 bottles of juice and filling over 60 bags with litter, respectively. Many thanks to everyone involved. Please find details below of the Christmas Community Market, the proposed new Youth Centre and Community Building, a new planning application for a caravan park in the Green Belt, the Nature Reserve Work Parties, and the next Fulbourn Repair Cafe.

Fulbourn Christmas Community Market🎄 
Saturday 9 December 2017, 2.30 to 5.00pm in the Townley Hall at the Fulbourn Centre, Home End

Don’t finish your Christmas shopping until you have visited your local market, brimming with Xmas gifts and goodies, as well as the usual fare!
It will be another full market packed with food – artisan bread, cakes, mince pies, buns, tarts, and savouries, including some gluten free baked items. Organic fruit and veg, jams, chutneys, local honey and eggs, Cambridge Cheese Company (cheese, olives, pies, scotch eggs and salmon) and other local produce.  And drink – Fulbourn’s Moonshine Brewery bottle conditioned ales and Fulbourn apple juice. Handmade crafts, fine art, ceramics, original prints, cards, and affordable jewellery; crafted home, kitchen, table and fabric gifts; home decorations, lamps, models, toys, and glass suncatchers; handmade natural lotions, deodorants, soaps and cosmetics; and natural health personal use products and supplements. Christmas plants, decorations and puddings. And more….

Again this year, there will be free activities for children making Christmas crafts on the stage – so bring the family (and plenty of bags), have a great afternoon, and stay to enjoy refreshments at the WI café.

Please note the dates for next year’s markets: 10 March, 9 June, 8 September and 8 December. 

Parish Council Public Meeting
New Youth Centre and Community Building
Wednesday 13 December, 6.30pm, in the large meeting room at the Fulbourn Centre
Youth provision in the village is currently in cramped, dilapidated premises which are no longer fit for purpose. The Parish Council has been trying to raise the money to provide a new youth and community building with an office and two meeting rooms for some years now.

Half the funds for a new building has been raised and the Public Meeting is to consult with parishioners on the Council’s proposal to apply for a short term loan to raise the rest of the cost as it usually means a small increase in the Parish element of the Council Tax. Fulbourn’s precept is one of the lowest in South Cambs and the PC say that they will do all it can to keep costs to a minimum. 

New Planning Application
Planning Application (Retrospective) for Change of Use of Agricultural Land to Residential (Temporary Occupation) Caravan Site (max.15 pitches) and Erection of Associated Amenity Building at Chaplin’s Farm, Babraham Road, CB21 5HR
Ref. S/4078/17/FL

Following the issue of an enforcement notice by South Cambs planners, the above retrospective application has been made to formalise the present use of land as a caravan park to be occupied on a “temporary residential basis”. This is not an application for a touring caravan site. The site lies in open Green Belt countryside with adjacent uses of a play barn and a golf driving range, and backs onto the gardens of houses in Dogget Lane. Full details can be found on the South Cambs website by quoting the reference number above. If you wish to comment on the application, this can be done through the website or by emailing the case officer Rebecca Ward – rebecca.ward@scambs.gov.uk. This proposed use is separate from the small, five pitches, touring caravan park located on adjacent land in the garden of 9 Dogget Lane – this use does have existing planning permission.

Fulbourn Nature Reserve Work Parties
There have been two very productive work parties so far this winter with many thorn bushes uprooted and burnt. This will greatly help with maintaining the meadows as sites for wild orchids. The work parties in 2018 are:
Sunday 7 January
Sunday 4 February
Sunday 4 March
Do join us if you can. We meet at 10.00am at the car parking area at the end of Stonebridge Lane. Wear stout boots and gloves, and old clothes. Coffee and biscuits provided. We finish between 12.30 and 1.00pm. The work parties are run by the Wildlife Trust – for more information contact volunteer warden Peter Montgomery at pete.monty@gmail.com.

And to finish we can now confirm a date for the next Repair Cafe in Fulbourn:
Fulbourn Repair Cafe
Saturday 17 March 2018, 2.30 to 5.00pm, in the Townley Hall, Fulbourn Centre, Home End
Full details of how to book in your items for repair will be publicised in the new year. ,

We wish everyone a very happy Christmas and thank you for supporting the work of Fulbourn Forum over the past year.
See you at the Market on Saturday!

Best wishes,
