I've had a very busy couple of weeks and haven't had the chance to get on here to do my blog ! Summer holidays have started and Charlotte went along to the Holiday Club run by the Churches in Cherry Hinton last week, in the mornings. She had a great time and we got to go to a lovely fun fair, parents show on evening :) Poor granny is still very ill and the family are having to do shifts looking after her, it has been really really hard, especially seeing her when she isn't thinking clearly, it can be very distressing, I hope she gets more better days and things sort out a more :(
Well, one week of summer holidays done only 5 more to go! Will have to go for more picnics and walks, which will be easier now that little puppy has had her injections and can go out as of Friday and I've almost finished writing up War Ditches research :)
So, what else has been happening....
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. We had got local school children to enter a competition to design the logo and had choosen 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 :)
I went to the Friends of Cherry Hinton Hall committee meeting last night. It is so encouraging to see how far we've come since starting the group last year. What a difference people can make when we get together! Cherry Hinton Hall is such a lovely place and one of the only green spaces which seperates Cherry Hinton village from becoming a complete suberb of Cambridge (along with the green expence of Marshall's Airport). The Friends of CHH will be having a stand at this years famous Cambridge Folk Festival which is held in the grounds of the Hall, so if you're there please pop along and see us and find out more. We are also running a great, fun packed open day - Cherry Hinton Community Groups Fair
