I am pleased to announce that we have another new Cambridgeshire Community Archive Group (CCAN). The beautiful village of Elton in the very far north west of Cambs has joined our brilliant community archives network. They have a very good village society and have a wonderful heritage project on the go, with exciting events such as their very own ‘Big Dig’ and the involvement of the whole community and village school is something to be admired. We are really looking forward to seeing the Elton CCAN group additions to the CCAN website.
CCAN is Cambridgeshire’s online community archive, a place to see old pictures, photos, written and recorded memories, pod-casts and video clips along with living history as groups record their activities from today for the history of tomorrow. If you would like to know more or get involved please Contact Me and I will help you.
Another great committee meeting with the Cambridgeshire Association for Local History (CALH) yesterday :) Plans are well underway for our celebrations of our Diamond Jubilee 2011. Lots of exciting things coming up and we have a great programme of meetings, events, our spring confrence and our Local History Awards which include the Young Persons History Awards and the Book Awards. Take a look at our website to keep up with our news and look at our great speakers list online!
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!
