Did you know you can read the Ely Standard and Ely City Guide online? It seems not everyone gets the Ely Standard weekly paper any more, so here’s a chance to get access to it again, for free.

Free registration gets you online access to the Ely Standard weekly paper and the Ely City Guide as well as the Jobs paper and guide to local businesses. Click the link above for more information and to register.

We’ve added a couple of new items to the archaeology section including some broaches and fishing weights. (see the Archaelogy page)

There’s also a local Witchford walk which takes in part of Little Thetford (see the Walks section)

We’ve added some audio of Janet Braybrooke – our village post woman singing Don’t cry for me Argentina (See the Music page under Recreation).

And finally we have a nice new weather widget on the right hand side of the page showing the 5 day outlook. Click the arrows to the side of the map to show rain, pressure or temperature.

We’ve added some information about the Swan Mark you might have seen if you drive from Ely to Little Thetford past Braham Farm (see location on StreetView).

Mr John Kisby did the Register Preparation for the years 1949-53 and he retained copies of them. See who lived in your house then.
