Just had a weekend stay in Melbourn at the Sheene Mill, what a fabulous place, and a quaint little village.

A high quality web site - congratulations. I particularly liked the Parish Magazine presentation.
Two matters let the site down:
1. The search box is cunningly disguised but too difficult to see and too easily overlooked.
2. I was looking for information about toddler groups and playgrounds for young children, but could not find anything, or work out how the info would be classified: HOME Pages (Education?) Local Amenities (Shops and Services? Village Clubs? Sports Clubs?)
Thank you for your comments Roy. Point taken I will update the site as soon as possible.

I was doing my geneology thing, typed in Melbourn and came up with en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melbourn with a link to this site. This is possibly the nicest designed site I have come across. A joy to peruse.

Came upon your site during family history research - of course! - Most of my mother's family came from the Cambridge area, including Foxton, Shepreth, Barrington and Meldreth and especially Melbourn. I particularly like your History section and understand that your planning to put the Church records on the site I look forward to seeing them online. I can't wait to tell my mum about this site, she will love it.

Although I no longer live in Melbourn, I still have fond memories when I was stationed at Duxford during the war, and stayed most of the time in Melbourn. The village has obviously changed but if this website is anything to go by the friendly atmosphere still stands. Will visit here again. Thanks

Stumbled across your site by accident. It is attractive and easy to use - very informative - speaks volumes about spirit of the residents/contributors. My family and I are planning to move to the area from Manchester, possibly to Melbourn. Using the Internet I wanted to find out something about the area. Your magazine, pictures and local information will really help us in our choice. May I say a big 'thank you'? Well done and keep up the good work!

Hi, I grew up in Melbourn and last lived there 20 years ago. The pictures are great but it looks like a lot has changed. I went to the Primary School and then MVC. From MVC website it looks like its grown a lot! Where has all the traffic gone?
Anyway great site. Will be back for sure.
