Heritage Open Days 2019

Heritage Open Days 2019

As well as the Crafternoon, we have also updated the town map from last year, including all those who had registered on the National Trust’s Heritage Open Days website, and emailing all those from last year to see if they wanted to take part again. We kept the landmark sites too (such as the Library) for ease of moving around the town and finding the hidden gems that aren’t always open to the public. It’s a great way to find out more about your town, and for us to attract visitors who follow the Heritage Open Days project.

Update: Entries for adding yourself to the national map close on August 1st

Update: we’ve closed for entries now, but can update an online list if you still want to be part of this event across the town.

Assets of Community Value

Assets of Community Value

Our first (unexpected) action when we formed the CIC was to research how to have an input to any possibility of the building known as “The Castle” being sold. The owners, Cambridgeshire County Council, felt they had no real use for it and wanted to…
