We will again be collaborating with the City Council and Cambridge Community Church to help everyone clear out their unwanted items. There will be a roaming ‘bin lorry’, skips will be in Ancaster Way and refreshments, swap shops and other activities in St Thomas’s Hall from 9am.
If you need something heavy moving you need to contact us by 19 April.
We are working with Cambridge City Council and Cambridge Community Church. There will be volunteers from the Community Church helping with the collection throughout the morning. But they would like your help. If you want to volunteer to help on the day please either email firstname.lastname@example.org or put a note into 52 Birdwood Rd with the magic word ‘volunteer’ in there somewhere.
Warning! If you do not make a booking and leave items outside your home after the clear-up has finished, the City Council may deem this to be fly-tipping! So please do ensure that all your items on the pavement have gone by 1pm.
At St Thomas's Hall:
Throughout the morning
Free refreshments and a sit down after all your hard work!
Swap shop – plants, seeds, books, CDs plus any items you want to bring – or take – that are surplus to your requirements but too good to throw away. Do come and look – everything is free – so every one is a bargain.

And finally, there’s a community BBQ at the Community Church (opposite Sainsbury’s) from 3pm to 5pm. Everyone welcome.
Our local lakes (entrance at the end of Budleigh Close) will be open to the public one Sunday a month. The City Council is looking for volunteer wardens to help on these days. If you think you would like to spend some time in the fresh air beside these lovely lakes and feel that you are being useful at the same time contact Caterina.Dunning@cambridge.gov.uk
There are new data protection regulations coming into effect on 25th May. In order to clarify our use of your data we have produced the following:
Purpose: Birdwood Area Residents Association maintains a list of email addresses and the associated street addresses of those residents who have elected to receive information by email. The purpose of this is to allow us to send out our periodic newsletters by email, and occasionally to share pieces of information relevant to the local area if they are time-sensitive and fall between newsletters. The link between email and street addresses allows us to avoid delivering paper newsletters to those residents who have elected to receive them by email.
Implementation: Currently these emails and addresses are held in the contacts list of our gmail account, email@example.com The data we hold will not be divulged to any third party without prior permission.
