The ideas discussed were providing a BMX area and use of the facilities at Bassingbourn Barracks.

Cllr Oliver said: "We're looking at three potential sites in the village for the BMX mound."

She said she had spoken to the barracks about allowing youngsters to use the assault course.

"Obviously we have to make sure we balance the needs of all Bassingbourn's residents, but providing activities for youngsters will help enormously in the battle with anti-social behaviour," she said.
