CHRA Weekly E-Newsletter
Our weekly email aims to provide you with up to date information on what is happening in and around Cherry Hinton.  If you or your group have something you would like to share please email
Well Cherry Hinton really did celebrate Platty Jubes!  Hopefully you were able to attend one of the events on offer.  If not the Cherry Hinton website will be collecting photos to share so you can see how much fun was had and how much we enjoyed spending time with our neighbours and friends.    We all know that all these types of community events are reliant on volunteers - a big thank you to everyone who volunteered to support all the events Cherry Hinton offered over the last week.                                                                                        
A disappointing part of the Jubilee celebrations at the Village Centre was the lack of information and photographs we were able to find on any Cherry Hinton celebrations in 1952 & 1953. 
We only tracked down two photos which we were able to display in the history section of the event.  So we are setting ourselves and you two challenges:
No 1  Do you have any photos of past celebrations? (1952 or 1953) are you happy to share?   We can arrange to scan your originals or you can email them to
No 2  Can you help us to document all  the celebrations from this weekend?  Did you take any pictures from any of the events held?  Do you have pictures of your own celebrations that you would be happy to share?   If you are happy for these memories to be collated and shared please email them to the together with a small comment including names of those attending/in the pictures.   
Do you recognise anyone in this picture?  We would really like to put names to faces. (From the 1953 Coronation Celebrations - possibly held at the Chequers Pub).

NEW Consultation launched by Greater Cambridge Partnership (GCP)
Ideas for changing the way that roads in Cambridge are classified to influence how people travel around the city by foot, bicycle, car, bus and lorry are out to public consultation. The Greater Cambridge Partnership today launched an eight-week consultation - called a new road classification for Cambridge - which asks for people’s thoughts on how roads and streets are used in the city.

It forms part of the first review of the road network since the 1980s to ensure it meets the future travel needs of people who live, work, and visit the city.  The review offers the chance to change how people move around the city, including the potential to reallocate more road space from private vehicles to buses and active travel.

The GCP’s ambition is that trips made by cars, vans and lorries would be required to use main roads for as much of the journey as possible to reduce traffic on other roads and streets in the city.

This could mean that some streets, which are currently used as through routes or rat runs at peak times, would no longer be open to through traffic. Access to properties in these streets by private vehicles would still be available but would be made from the closest main road junction.  Give your feedback here
