I have just been to our lovely committee meeting for Cherry Hinton Local History Society. We always have a lot to go through but do it with great humour and nice cups of tea and coffee. I am lucky to be on so many committees that are a pleasure to attend. Cherry Hinton Local History Society has nearly been going for 30 years! We found some notes about the start of the group and had a look through them today. We found out that the society actually started on March 21st 1982, so we’ll have to have some celebrations for our 30th year which is 2011. We’ll get all the details we have about the history of the group up onto our Cherry Hinton Archives Group (CHCAN) website.
If you would like more details about Cherry Hinton Local History Society and the talks, excursions and events we run please do take a look at our Facebook page!
I've just been to the Cambridgeshire Association for Local History committee meeting held in Hildersham, Cambridge. We had a great meeting, always friendly and nice and today we had the added bonus of a lovely homemade cake being delivered by the secretaries mother. If all meetings were like this I think most people would be on some committee or other! As usual we covered a lot and got a hugh amount done. Next year will be our Diamond Jubilee year, so keep an eye out for information coming soon about our 2011 Conference, our celebration events, our AGM & Awards, excursions and jam packed programme of events and lectures!
