Wintringham celebrates Bank Holiday weekend with special Street Food Saturday

Following the successful launch of Street Food Saturdays at Wintringham earlier this month, the local community is looking forward to celebrating the start of the Bank Holiday weekend by sampling the wide range of cuisines available from the four food trucks and mobile bar that will be at the school plaza this Saturday (29 May).

Street Food Saturdays have proven incredibly popular, with people coming from Wintringham, Love’s Farm, St Neots and surrounding villages to try out great food, meet neighbours and spend some (socially distanced) time in the fresh air. This Saturday’s event will stay open an extra two hours (from 4pm to 9pm) to give the local community an opportunity to sample the great range of food on offer and welcome in the Bank Holiday weekend.

Local and independent food businesses – Pigcassos, Questione di Sapori, Flavas Soul Food, Churros Bar and Banquet Inn Bars – will be bringing converted camper vans, horse trailers and trucks to the plaza in front of the new Wintringham Primary Academy at the heart of Wintringham, St Neots. This landscaped public space is the perfect setting for outdoor eating and meeting!

The new play parks at Wintringham have also opened recently, so children joining family and friends at the event will be able to explore and try out all the new play equipment.

Christine Littlewood, Community Development for Wintringham, said: “Street Food Saturdays have had a fantastic response. As well as providing great food in a tranquil setting, people are taking the opportunity to check out the development and see what community facilities are on offer.

“With lockdown restrictions starting to ease, it’s been great to see neighbours – from Wintringham and the wider community – meeting up and reconnecting. We really appreciate everyone’s continued efforts to keep each other safe by social distancing as they wait to be served and whilst enjoying the delicious range of dishes available.

“We hope to be able to organise many more community events as the development continues to take shape and it’s been great to chat to people to find out the types of activities they’d like to get involved with.”

So far, Wintringham has welcomed around 30 residents into their new homes and another 20 are due to move into homes bought forward by CALA and Morris Homes by the end of June. Also in June, Durkan will be joining the development and starting to build homes just to the north of the Primary School, with a sales launch due early next year.
