Mammogram appointments A resident recently raised a concern that the boundaries have been changed and we are now part of Beds Primary Care Trust. Routine mammogram appointments which used to be at Tesco at St Neots or in Biggleswade are now being sent to Luton or Dunstable hospital and the next nearest option is Baldock. We contacted Greensand Medical Pracice for some more information on this. The Practice Manager explained that some Cambridgeshire patients will have been transferred under the Beds & Herts Scheme and therefore asked to attend the L & D, whereas depending on location, some will continue to be sent appointments for Tesco's in St Neots. They have advised that if a patient expresses a specific wish to attend St Neots rather than travel to Luton, they should call the Breast Unit on 01223 217627, who may be able to transfer them back, but there may be a wait. ...

Gridlocked Gamlingay Traffic at certain times of the day is always a problem in the vilage, but it has become worse during the Church Street works, with the necessary road closures and diversions. How can we all help? Please use your driveways/garages to park or if you have space - offer it to neighbours to park in order to keep as many cars as possible off the road to assist with the through passage of traffic. Obey any parking restrictions that are in place. If there are vehicles parked all the way down both sides of the street, there is nowhere for through traffic to pull in. Don't park on junctions - it is dangerous for both vehicles and pedestrians. Be considerate to other road users and give yourself a bit of extra time - accept that it might take a bit longer to get in and out of the village. Thank you for your co-operation. ... See more

Church Street works - access The contractor has asked us to "please reiterate that residents and visitors are able to gain access- they will have to speak to the TM crew to be let around the closure safely. However it is closed to through traffic which will need to follow the signed diversion." This is a road closure, so vehicle access may be delayed slightly to maintain safety. I have just spoken to the site manager who assured me that access is being maintained, although there may have been a short period (10-15mins) yesterday where the delivery of a forklift was being made that may have caused a slight delay to users" ...
