It has been a successful year for Melbourn, with lots of exciting new projects coming to fruition. The Hub and new housing really enhance the centre of the village, the shelter on the recreation ground has been welcomed while we all look forward to the imminent completion of the Pavilion renovation.
We should also like to congratulate Melbournian Rob Smart who reached the fifth round of the Great British Bake Off! We hope that he does decide to write a book, we look forward to trying his recipes.
Everyone knows that next year is the centenary of WWI, The Great War, and the older ones amongst us will recall things related by our grandparents, or remember people who returned with mental damage, shell shock, which was unrecognised in those days. The Melbourn History Group hopes to put together an exhibition and asks for your help in accumulating memories and material. (see p 6)
We are now all preparing for Christmas with our families and friends. We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year!
Front cover: The painting chosen for this issue’s cover is situated on the side wall of the Community Pavilion on the New Recreation ground. The concept for the design came from students at MVC who requested a memorial wall painting as a tribute to a young student who tragically died earlier this year.Commissioned by Melbourn Parish Council and Working with Melbourn Area Youth Development (MAYD), the artist Jon, from Blight Society Art worked with the students to design and produce this excellent image. They have also worked together on the Community shelter. Photograph by Peter Simmonett
