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 
Tomorrow morning at St Andrew's Cherry Hinton there will be a member of the Royal British Legion standing outside the Church who will lower the standard as the funeral begins and you are welcome to join him and then go home or to the Baptist Church to watch the service.
Hopefully everyone will have received their hard copy of the Cherry Hinton Newsletter.  If not, there are spare copies in the Cherry Hinton Library and St Andrew's Church.  If you did not get one through your door perhaps you would be interested in volunteering to deliver the winter edition in your street?  Arrangements can be made to drop off to your home and your support would be very welcome.  For more details email

Art Exhibiton at St Andrew's Cherry Hinton
A big thank you to local artist Gerard M O’Keeffe, who contacted Cherry Hinton Hub recently and offered to set up an exhibition of his work. Proceeds from sales will go to Cherry Hinton Hub (50%) and St. Andrew’s Church (20%).  Prices will range from £20 to no more than £200. This is a great chance to own or gift an original piece of artwork while raising money for your community. The exhibition and sale will be held on: Saturday 1st October and Sunday 2nd October, 1–5 pm, at St Andrew’s Church. Just drop in! Ahead of the exhibition opening, there will be a preview and a drinks reception on the evening of Friday 30th September where you can chat to Gerard about his work over a glass of wine. The event is free to attend, but if you are interested in going along please email: or register your interest on the Facebook event page:

Bin collections for residents of Cambridge City and South Cambridgeshire will take place one day later than usual next week. This is to reflect the fact that the State Funeral following the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will take place on Monday 19 September – which will be a Bank Holiday.  

The collection scheduled for Friday 23 September will take place on Saturday 24 September. Bin collections will return to their normal schedule on Monday 26 September.

Hi all! I live in Cherry Hinton, I'm a primary school teacher and mum and I'm currently setting up some Creative Mindfulness for Children classes in Cherry Hinton. Sessions aimed at ages 5 to 11. 

Cherry Hinton's Senior Citizens meet at St Andrew's Church Centre on Tuesdays from 2pm to 4pm.

Enjoying a varied programme, talks on many subjects - some with slides, music and demonstrations and some good outings and parties.

All are welcome, not just Cherry Hinton residents, to join them for a time of happy fellowship.  Don't be alone, come along and find new friends.

The Ol' Boys Club, also known as the Men's Social Group, meet every Monday afternoon at 2:00pm in the Meeting Room at the Village Leisure Centre in Colville Road. It is open to all men of the surrounding area. "Please come along and meet like-minded people and join in our informal afternoon events."

Weekly Healthy Walking group at Wandlebury

Wandlebury  has an enthusiastic group of trained volunteers who lead the two, weekly health walks supported by funding from Local Giving. The first is slightly faster while the second is more leisurely, accommodating people who are not so fit or are newcomers to the group. Each walk lasts around 30 minutes and covers about 1.5 miles. With the slower, second walk, they offer a shortcut back to the base if needed.

This social group meets all year round at 10am every Thursday morning, with the slower walk starting at 10.30am. Walks are well-attended, with 40 people joining most weeks. Some people like it so much they do both walks! Teas/coffees are available afterwards.

If you want to take part for the first time then please arrive 10 mins early in order to register. The meeting point is the Stables Education Centre.

If you are looking for an opportunity to have a go at some gentle exercise this is absolutely the opportunity you have been waiting for.  Small class size, free and fairly local.  Great trainer leading and a very supportive environment.  Although the sessions have started there is still time to sign up and join in. 
"For many years we have been trying to raise money for a mural to be placed on one of the walls of the Coldham’s Lane Sainsbury’s store, to raise awareness about the Brook. In September 2016 Sainsbury’s gave us an initial donation of £500 and we have finally succeeded in raising the rest through a Cambridge City Council Public Art grant. Hooray! 
Rowan, an arts charity that works with adults with learning disabilities, will be working with us to produce the design, which will be approved before painting by FoCHB and Sainsbury’s. We are currently preparing the briefing for the design, which will involve all our favourite chalk stream wildlife: water voles, kingfishers, violets, meadowsweet, and other key features. We hope that it will attract people’s attention and encourage everyone to take greater care of the Brook. 
The mural will be made from marine hardboard and will be demountable, so that it can be moved if needed. We are working with Sainsbury’s to identify the best wall for it. The Rowan students will be preparing the mural over the course of the coming year and we hope to install it in late 2023."
The current situation - Call for Volunteers from Cambridge Area Bus Users 

"It is over two years since our last annual general meeting. In between times we have had the disruption of a Covid pandemic which has made large meetings impossible to hold.  
Additionally, the Executive Committee elected at that meeting has not been able to meet at any time, and key members have tended their resignation and/or lost touch.  
A token presence has been maintained on social media, and on local radio, to keep the group alive.  
The key issue is whether there are enough people – and who they may be – who would be willing to form the core of activists who would then run Cambridge Area Bus Users.
We need a new Executive Committee – Chair, Vice-chair, Secretary, Treasurer and others – some of whose roles would be more public-facing, some rather more in the background.
Whatever your talents, whatever your personality, if you can spare some time, there'll be a role for you."

Merry Go Round Toy Library at Ross Street Community Centre - Fridays from 10am .  This is a community volunteer non-profit toy library which runs as a stay and play session on the first and third Fridays of every month. Toy Library members can also borrow toys from one session to the next for children in their care to play with outside the sessions. In this way they hope to contribute to helping the environment through reducing our collective need to each buy lots of new toys. Donations of good quality toys which your children no longer want to play with are also welcomed.
