LEISURE CENTRE HOPES
A packed public meeting in Linton saw nearly 200 residents express their desire to see a leisure centre built at the now empty Cathodean Crystals site.
The firm had closed down six months earlier and residents said they would like to see the 9.2 acre site used for more community facilities.
ID CARD SCHEME
The pioneer young adult identity card scheme, which would be a licence to drink, was given a big publicity launch in Haverhill.
On the following two Saturdays young people over 18 were to be given credit-card-size passes at sessions at the town hall.
The 200 pupils and staff had a smooth transition from old to new when they moved into the New Cangle School in Haverhill.
The £670,000 school off Chapple Drive replaced the Victorian Cangle School in the town centre.
Head teacher Clive Blanshard said: “The parents who have visited have been very impressed.”
