Floodmobile event and Household Support scheme

A floodmobile event will take place in Godmanchester, at Town Hall, 1 Post Street, Godmanchester PE29 2NB, on Saturday 29th January from 10 am to 3pm.

A roadshow of events are being hosted by the Ox-Cam PFR Pathfinder Project, in partnership with Cambridgeshire County Council, which are designed to help households and businesses located in areas that have previously seen flooding, receive expert advice onboard a special ‘Floodmobile’ – an interactive demonstration vehicle which provides examples of over 50 practical measures of flood resilience.

The Household Support Fund, funded by the Department of Work and Pensions, has been created to help people experiencing immediate financial hardship to pay for food, household energy or other essential items. The scheme will run until 31st March 2022.
A number of local trusted partners are also signed up to issue Household Support Fund direct awards to those they support. If you would like to find out more about this or are interested in signing up to make direct awards, please email .
Further information on the fund can be found below.
Support is offered in two ways:

  • Support with food, household energy and other essentials for individuals and families
  • Direct food voucher scheme

The Household Support Fund is now available to apply for online. For more information or to access the form directly please follow the link below.

There are free places to families of school aged children on the DfE funded Holiday Activities and Food Programmes this Christmas. Whilst it is recognised that Covid levels are concerning people, there are huge well-being benefits for children attending the programme which will operate within all safety requirements. There are also food hampers being offered to all families who book places at a participating holiday scheme or family experience this Christmas, which is an additional initiative in recognition of the food poverty families may be experiencing.

The household recycling centres will close at 1pm on Christmas Eve and will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.  A booking system is now in place at all sites so if you are planning on visiting between Christmas and the New Year, book a slot today.  Visit for more information.

Christmas Tree Recycling

We are supporting East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice again this year who will be collecting real Christmas trees for recycling on Saturday 15th January 2022.

To check availability and book your slot visit

Donations received from the Christmas tree collection provide vital funds for your hospice and other local charities.

Real trees can be placed by the side of the garden bin on collection day.  If the tree is bigger than the bin we ask that it is chopped in half.

The Household Recycling Centres will also take Christmas trees.

We will be informing residents of these changes via a bin hanger which will be placed on grey bins in December.  There will be a full page of advice in the Hunts Post.
