Eddington Water Recycling Survey

Eddington is home to the UK's largest site-wide water recycling system. Within the water industry, it's being referred to as a best practice case study for sustainability. We want to know how Eddington residents feel about it. 
 
Stantec UK Ltd are working with Greater Cambridge Shared Planning to identify how future development in the region could affect the water cycle. Your feedback will help support the recommendations about water recycling in future developments. 
 
Wileman Way Fire

Wileman Way Fire

Roof terrace fire


At four in the afternoon on Wednesday, May 20, firefighters attended a roof terrace fire in Wileman Way.


Residents of the Key Worker apartment block expressed surprise in the residents' Facebook group that they weren't evacuated. The Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue service has said: "The fire was contained to a flower container on a roof terrace and the cause was believed to be a discarded cigarette.

"There was no evacuation, as the fire was relatively small and did not pose any significant risk to residents."

Residents in other apartment blocks expressed concern about whether final exit doors would unlock in the event of a fire, following failures of electrically operated doors earlier this year.

Eddington Number Challenge returns


As the weather gets warmer we would like to invite you to take part in the Eddington Number Challenge - NWCD


The Eddington Number campaign was devised to get more people cycling, running and walking in the Cambridge area.  The campaign is based around the Eddington number for cycling – which takes its name from its inventor, Sir Arthur Eddington, who was also the astrophysicist that the Eddington district is named after.

Pasta à la Pieter


This weeks recipe comes from Eddington resident Pieter, who is the chair of the Eddington Residents Association and often helps out with the Eddington Eats community restaurant at Storey’s Field Centre. He has been an Eddington resident for 1 year and 7 months.


Hi everyone,
I am Pieter and am from Belgium. I enjoy cooking my own dinners but am not too keen on elaborate or time-consuming cooking sessions.  I am providing you with a quick and easy, but tasty, recipe. Ideal for those moments when you do not have much time or on days that you had way too many Zoom meetings and you just do not have the energy anymore to prepare an elaborate meal.

This weeks recipe comes from Eddington resident Argyris, who is a volunteer at the Eddington Eats community restaurant at Storey’s Field Centre and has been an Eddington resident for 1 year and 6 months.


I am Argyris and I come from Cyprus the land of halloumi. These halloumi breads (halloumotes) are very popular for breakfast (or any time of day!) and can be found at any bakery. Here is my version of them:

This weeks recipe comes from Alice, who is a volunteer at the Eddington Eats community restaurant at Storey’s Field Centre and has been an Eddington resident for 1 year and 2 months.


Hi, my name is Alice and, like Lis, I love to cook. Since the beginning of its adventure, I have followed the development of Eddington Eats and participated as much as I could to help Lis make it a success. Cooking together for our neighbours has been an amazing experience and I have learnt a lot amongst the volunteers. Unfortunately, in this period of pandemic, we can’t meet and share a diner together as we have all moved to home working and self-isolation. But, this is an opportunity to test new recipes. And here is my new invention: an apple cake!

Here are the ingredients you will need:

You may have guessed it by now, but in case it wasn’t clear I will let you in on the secret: I love to cook. For most of my adult years I have been cooking my own food, which brings great joy to me. However, when I moved to Eddington, I thought I would love to share this joy with other people and as a bonus get to know my neighbours. So in April 2019 I started the Eddington Eats community restaurant. Little did I know that cooking for groups of people is a completely different experience than cooking for myself.
