Saturday 18th October 2014 - Volunteer reed planting day at Logan's Meadow LNR

The earthworks are nearing completion and we are soon to let the river flow into the newly created back water and reedbed habitat on Logan's Meadow Local Nature Reserve.

We'd like to invite you to come and lend a hand planting young reed on the Saturday 18th October 2014, between 10.00a.m. and 4p.m. Meet at the base of the Swift Tower on the sports pitches, accessed via the white cycle bridge or Logan's Way.

We'll provide the plants, tools and gloves, you'll need to bring your wellies!

Please let us know if you intend to join us at or simply turn up on the day, you are welcome to stay for as long or as little as you are able.

Folk will be on site to explain the project and instruct where and how to plant the reeds.

Chesterton: A Year in Photographs Project

This project, organized and conducted by the CCA  members, photographed a calendar year from 1st. May 2012 to 31st. May 2013 recording the life and activities of the residents of Chesterton.

The aim was to collect a Picture-a-Day plus extra images of special events such as the Queen's Jubilee and the Annual Chesterton Festival. 450 of the photographs from the year were recorded and have been made available on DVD. They have earned income for the Chesterton Community.

Beginning in May 2012, a retrospective slideshow of each three months of the whole record can be seen here together with the twelve selected monthly images shown at the 2013 Chesterton Festival: months currently showing - May to July 2012
