What is the difference between Little Stanion Farm Management Company (LSFMC) and Silentpride?
Silentpride own the Little Stanion development and are currently responsible for the completion of the roads, street lighting, sewers and other infrastructure works. LSFMC are the company who are contracted to maintain the completed areas of the village and who homeowners pay their annual management fee to. Their remit currently includes maintaining the public open spaces by cutting the grass and repairing fences, maintaining the Welcome Centre when it requires major works (recent kitchen repair and roofing lost in high winds), lake safety such as the provision of life buoys etc.

Can I walk to Tesco from Little Stanion?
Yes, there are two possible routes. You can walk either down Longcroft Road towards the EuroHub and turn left at the roundabout. Further along the road towards the units is a pathway through the trees on the right hand side.
The other route (which is shorter but can be muddy in wet weather) is to walk up through the trees from the roundabout at the top of Roman Road at the start of the Bovis development. The route goes up past the Taylor Wimpy houses at Clarendon Close and into the woods which is then a straight path to the Eurohub. When you come out of the woods and onto the road, turn right and there is a pathway through the trees on the left hand side.
Once you find the pathway at the Eurohub you are only a few minutes away from Tescos. Follow the pathway over the bridge and then down under the railway lines. This will bring you out at the back of Tescos.
