On Saturday 24th July we had the Cherry Hinton Community Groups Fair which was hosted by The Friends of Cherry Hinton Hall and showcased all different kinds of groups and clubs in the local area. It was a great chance to meet each other and find out what things are going on, in and around Cherry Hinton.
We had a packed afternoon of displays and demos by some of the groups and then The Friends of Cherry Hinton Hall had its new logo unveiled by the Mayor. Local school children to entered a competition to design the logo and we had chosen a winner at our last meeting. There was a lovely bit in the paper about it last week and the Mayor spent some time with me finding out all about CCAN and looking at the Cherry Hinton CCAN :) Special thanks to Sandra Day who did such a fantastic job of pulling the whole event together.
Last Monday, I paid another visit to Netherhall School to take some more photos and retrieve any items of use, before the old Netherhall Lower school is pulled down in the next few weeks. I was accompanied by Jonathan & Nicola Phillips, Sandra Day and Elizabeth Toller-Brown. I managed to takes lots of archive pics and we got some great archive pieces, like the old classroom signs and wing signs :)
If you'd like to support the work that I do, why not buy me a virtual coffee, I'd be really grateful and it will help keep me going!
