We are hoping to organise a coach trip to Norwich on Saturday 15th September for Heritage Day (when the castle and other venues have free entry).
The subsidised cost will be approximately £10 (although additional donations are welcome!)
To express an interest please email firstname.lastname@example.org or put a note through the door at 26A Ward Rd by Friday 6th July saying how many places.
If there is sufficient demand we’ll book the coach.
Have you ever thought that you would like to organise a small group with your very local neighbours?
How about a reading group, scrabble, knitting or just a regular coffee and chew the fat morning? If you would like to try, go for it! And let us know if you think we can help.
The contractors from the County Council filled in the really big holes, ignored the others and went away. I wrote to ask how we could do the rest ourselves and got no reply!
We have complained many times about the buses since the change in timetable. Please join in if you are having problems – the more people who complain, the better. We have a meeting with Nigel Tarrant and representatives of the City and County councils on 18th June. The trouble is, no-one seems to be able to take control and responsibility for this. We’ll let you know the outcome – if there is any!
If you want to give feedback or complain to Stagecoach, contact Nigel Tarrant

Two years ago there was a boundary review for the County Council wards. We were not informed about it and Coleridge Ward disappeared for County elections. Our corner was put into Cherry Hinton Ward and our County Councillor is now the representative for Cherry Hinton. Had we been informed, we would have said that we have more in common with Romsey than Cherry Hinton (although our Cherry Hinton councillor has been very helpful with pavements and buses.)
There is now a review of City Council wards and we have been informed. The consultation runs until 6 August and it would be helpful if lots of people responded.
The consultation page for this review is https://consultation.lgbce.org.uk/node/12865

The Friends of Cherry Hinton Hall are joining forces with The Cambridge International School in Cherry Hinton Hall to hold a Family Fun Day on Friday 29th June from 2-5pm in Cherry Hinton Hall to raise £2000 for a for a defibrillator to be placed on the Hall, for public use.
Sandra Day is looking for stalls and arena demos from local sports groups. Stalls will be £25 for 12 x 12 outside, on grass.

If you want to help run races or games in the arena she would love to hear from you. You can contact her on 01223 247639.
