Ickleton Tennis ClubAdult tennis was now being played every Friday at 7.30pm on the courts at the rear of Norman Hall via the entrance in Mill Lane.

CCC Definitive Map Modification Order 2011(Footpaths 7, 4 and 12) – The Planning Inspectorate – A letter from The Planning Inspectorate confirmed that the Order (dated 25 November 2011) is confirmed and proposed to modify the Definitive Map and Statement for the area by deleting one footpath and adding another.  This means there will be a public footpath going from the level crossing in Brookhampton Street to the west of the railway line, and the present footpath that crosses the railway line from the continuation of Water Lane to the east of the railway line will be closed.  The Water Lane footpath that links to the Hinxton footpath network will remain in place.
