Longstanton Life Archive

The Longstanton Life is a free bi-monthly magazine covering news and events in and around the village. Although we are delighted to host this archive of past editions, please note that the Life is entirely separate from this website. For information on any aspect of the Life, please open the current edition by clicking the cover below and refer to page 3 where you will find contact details, copy dates and advertising rates.

Current Edition


The December edition contains all the regular features, updates and reports from local clubs and councillors. Longstanton Youth Council has been on a trip to Parliament, courtesy of MP Heidi Allen. The Community Speed Watch group is still in business. There are reports on local wildlife and activities at the Fen Drayton Lakes by the RSPB, but the Heritage Society has ongoing concerns about dewatering and the destruction of habitat at the ‘Kingfisher Lake’.
