As the days are getting shorter and the weather turns cold, we wanted to share with you details of Warm Spaces in Huntingdon.

Warm Spaces is an initiative coordinated by Huntingdonshire District Council to create a network of Warm Spaces, a group of safe and accessible places where people can come together to stay warm.

Every Warm Space will offer something different. They could be a place to meet new people over a hot drink or try out a new activity. All of the Warm Spaces will be registered with the council to make sure they are safe for people to use. More information can be found on their website here:


Public Consultation

Huntingdon Town Council is very disappointed to share the news that one of the trees in the rear churchyard of All Saints Church has been surveyed and viewed to be dangerous due to its growth and position close to the church and pedestrian footpaths.

It is already damaging a Grade II listed wall, and dominating the churchyard, preventing other plants from growing properly. It is also close to the Grade II listed South African War Memorial.

We are working with contractors to remove the tree safely and in a way that doesn't affect local trade and access. This will take place on Tuesday 8th November 2022.

Huntingdon Town Council are committed to increasing our biodiversity in the town and tree removal is not an action we take lightly. We have already committed to planting two new trees at Bloomfield Park in memory of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, and also working with Huntingdonshire District Council to plant 20 additional trees at various different locations around the town.

We would like to ask residents and businesses in the town to share with us their ideas for a replacement once the tree has been removed. This may be suggestions for a particular species of replacement tree, or perhaps a floral display. It may be something else entirely?

If you have an idea or suggestion for this area, please complete our online survey or email town.council@huntingdontown.gov.uk. There are also paper copies available at the Town Hall. This public consultation will be open from 7th November to 12th December 2022.
