Rampton Relay

Thanks to all the athletes who turned out to support the event. The Rampton Educational Foundation Shield goes to the ‘Gardner Bros’ (Matthew and Luke) who’s adjusted four man time was 33:32. Fastest woman was Abbbi Itsbitsky (8:28), Fastest man Phil Swanbury (6:21), Fastest family were the Agnews (38:13). We had a tie for fastest team (30:34) between The Home Farm Close team (Lewis and Mark Wickham, Louis Terdjmann and Phil Swanbury) and the Leg of Lamb team (Ryan Thornton Michael Burch, Dougie Ellis and Rory Dixon).

A special mention for Anna Blunt who ran a four lap relay on her own with a respectable overall time of 38:31 and a fastest single lap of 9:17, which amazingly, was her last lap. Proceeds to Papworth Hospital Trust.

Jumble Sale Update

Over 60s Dinner & Show

Our annual dinner for over 60’s is by invitation only. We aim to invite all villagers over 60 years of age but sometimes newcomers or those of naturally youthful appearance get overlooked. If you think we might have missed you please contact Gilbert Smith (200430) or Sarah Palmer (252238) who will add you to the list. This is a really good evening finishing off with the last night of the infamous Rampton Review (first night of the review is 30th Jan and is open to all).

Rampton Review

The Rampton Review will have its first night on 30th January and its last performance will follow the dinner on 31st.

Rampton relay and fun run

The date has been set for 26th April. This annual event comprises a run over a course of exactly one Rampton mile and can be tackled by individual runners or teams of four running a four lap relay. A really nice family event.

Christmas lights on the village green

Rampton has long-cherished an ambition to rival the bright lights of Cottenham and finally we did it!! We would like to thank Laura Webb who generously donated the lights to go around the green and master-minded the electrics, Rob Taylor who again donated a Christmas tree, Mark Drew for the excavation and transport, and Mick North for making it all happen. Brilliant (in all senses of the word).

Family Christmas Party

Family Christmas Party Sunday 7th December 3:30–5:15pm in the Village Hall. Christmas fun and party games, with a visit from Father Christmas, followed by a carol service in the Church at 5.30pm. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

’77 Committee Support Request

The Rampton ’77 Committee needs your muscles, your strength, your stamina, your flexibility – and your youth!


In recent years we’ve worked to improve the appearance of the village with bunting in the summer and festive lights and a Christmas tree on the Green at Christmas. These amenities are at risk without some willing hands, knees, feet, shoulders, etc! The committee has found the physical work more and more taxing recently. The bottom line is that we can’t do it anymore.
Ahhh. Sad but true. We need some help.

What else?

The events that the committee sponsors throughout the year for the village – especially the Summer Fayre and Tea on the Green – are also at risk. If these events are to continue, we need some younger and fitter folk who could be available for an hour or more for one or more events: to help with the Christmas tree and lights, the bunting plus setting up and taking down for events.

What do I do?

You don’t need to join the committee (though new members are always welcome!). All you need to do is call Judy Garstang on 250960 or email her at john.garstang@nullbtinternet.com and put your name on the list. Get in touch today – please 😉

Priority: if we have enough volunteers, we hope to put up the Christmas tree and lights on Saturday 6th December. If you can help, please let us know.

A huge thanks in anticipation!

Summer Fayre

The weather on 5th July was decidedly unsettled but, armed with an optimistic forecast from the BBC, our chairman sent a small army of willing helpers out into monsoon conditions to set up the green for the afternoon. Contrary to all expectations the rain stopped and a glimpse of sunshine at 2pm heralded the opening of the annual fayre.  Steve Smith acted as master of ceremonies for the afternoon. Congratulations to the tug o’ war winners this year;  The Moudlies’ (Adams and Mould family team) athletic achievement will be immortalised on the Rampton Tug o’ War Trophy.  The event raised just under £1100.

Tea on the Green

Thank-you to everyone who came along to join us on 8th June. The sun shone and  the tea flowed; a perfect afternoon. We raised just over £150.00 which will go towards the Christmas events.

Summer Fayre

This will be held on Saturday 5th July starting at 2pm.

Tea on the Green

Don’t forget that on Sunday 8th June you can enjoy cream teas, competition and a plant stall on the village green starting at 3pm.

Come along and enjoy a relaxing afternoon catching up with friends and neighbours whilst pondering the questions in the quiz and enjoying a delicious cream tea. All proceeds to local good causes.

Fun Run 13 April 2014

It was a glorious sunny afternoon and 60 people entered this year’s Fun Run. The 4 members of the Fraser family won fastest family category with a time of 31.54 minutes, though they were pipped in the fastest team category by a team consisting of Paul Brown, Lewis and Mark Wickham and Phil Swanbury at 29.28 minutes. Phil Swanbury also won fastest lap – 6.19 minutes. Well done to everyone who competed. A total of £163 was raised to go towards a donation to the Marie Curie Cancer Care.
