We have been donated some amazing old photos of the village and members of the Cherry Hinton Archives group have been busy getting them scanned in and uploaded to our CCAN site. We have also got a brilliant set of cine films which show various parts of Cambridge and Cherry Hinton in the 1960’s which we are having transferred to DVD. More news on that as we progress.
Here's just a couple of those pictures:
We, like many of the counties CCAN groups still have lots and lots of photos and stories to upload and continue to build a fantastic community record of life and history in our villages. If you have any memories, stories, pictures, photos and/or ephemera to share we’d love to hear from you. We don’t just want old photos though, all CCAN groups are also a ‘living memory’ and we record current history too. Things like changes to buildings, local events, news and updates on our areas. We also carry out voice recordings, oral history, make pod-casts, videos, DVD’s, books and much more!
Most CCAN groups have regular open meetings that you can attend and bring along your contributions. You don’t have to part with your pictures if you don’t want to either as all groups will scan in you items and give them back to you if you wish.

Exciting stuff happening! I am aiming to get the Book Shop shelf open by the end of the weekend, at the moment the books are all on a hidden page whilst we finish getting them all priced up and listed, then you'll be able to shop away! The great news for the book shop is that for every purchase, not only will you get FREE p&p/delivery in the UK but 10% of any profits will be donated to the Cambridgeshire Association for Local History (CALH) So it's a great way for you to treat yourself whilst supporting this fantastic county group which does so much for the local history of Cambridgeshire!
