In an exciting week for those interested in local history and specifically the heritage of Yaxley, it has been announced that the newly formed Fenland Trust, a group created as a direct result of the Yaxley Festival Legacy Heritage Project, will be staging the village’s first ever Heritage Week this November.

The week-long programme of events  will include the burial of a time capsule on the village green, educational activities, a  display of images and artefacts, the launch of a new heritage trail and with fingers-crossed, the announcement of a new venture that plans to put Yaxley on the heritage map.
