This is the first Bourn Brook newsletter, a second one is expected in spring 2015.
As all Grantchester residents know, Christmas Day is just a prelude to the main event of the season – the barrel race on Boxing Day. The event will start as usual at 12pm on 26th December and this year will support the Samaritans and Grantchester Parochial Church Council. All are welcome!
More details of the event can be found here.

If you own land adjoining, above or with a watercourse running through it, you have certain rights and responsibilities. In legal terms you are a ‘riparian owner’. If you rent the land you should agree with the owner who should manage these rights and responsibilities. This document explains your rights and responsibilities.
1 in 4 people will experience a mental heath problem within a year. This document provides details of services to help people with mild to moderate mental health issues such as depression and anxiety. These can be used for self-referral or by health professionals.
The newsletter is aimed not just at Adult Safeguarding Leads, but all people who work with or support vulnerable adults, including family carers and those people who use services. It provides updates and information about current topics relating to Safeguarding Adults, The Mental Capacity Act and Deprivation of Liberty Standards.
