I've had a lovely time visiting many of our CCAN groups over the last couple of months and it's great to see what a fantastic community we have become - all collecting, archiving and sharing Cambridgeshire's history. There are so many exciting plans for 2011 for CCAN and we've had a brilliant year this year.
On my History and Archeology page in the CCAN section you'll find news and updates along with featured groups, here's just a snippet from the Cam-Mind CCAN group:
Our archive group meets once a month and we currently have 22 pages on the CCAN site dating back to 1908 and right up to what is going on now at Cam-mind. Joining CCAN has given us the opportunity to make available all the old newspaper articles relating to the very beginning of our organisation when the Association for the Care of the Feeble Minded was formed by Darwin’s daughter in law – Ida and Mrs FA Keynes (wife of the famous economist), as well as preserving current documents for everyone who has an interest in our work.
