Last week I visited the Soham CCAN (Cambridge Community Archives Network). They are a very active lot with their history in Soham! They are several history related groups and even the museum which will soon have a home and all the groups are linked one way or another. The Soham CCAN group have been working on some great research projects such as the evacuees, the Jewish School and they have been busy collecting and recording oral history around the town. I really enjoyed my visit to the group as not only were they a lovely bunch but I also used to live in Soham and I always enjoy my visits back there :)
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
