New Young Peoples' Cafe at St Andrew's Cherry Hinton
Exciting things are happening for young people in Cherry Hinton.  St Andrew's Church has a new Wednesday Youth Cafe.  At their first meeting the group enjoyed cheese toasties, chocolate milkshakes, chat and more.  Open for 11-16 yr olds, every Wednesday in term time, from 3.30-5pm. They are planning a trip to the board games cafe in town next month and various other trips through the year, and also looking at how they might collaborate with the young people in neighbouring churches.  

Every penny spent at Cambridge Re-Use (Cherry Hinton Road, The Paddocks, Unit 8) helps keep the price of furniture as low as possible for those who are struggling with low incomes. So please think about visiting them and shopping. Or if you have some spare-time they are looking for volunteers - its good fun and good experience with lots of different roles including sales, online marketing, delivery van, admin & management www.cambridgereuse.org.uk

Food for the Planet Festival launches
Cambridge Sustainable Food partnership (CSF) is launching the Food for the Planet Festival, a week-long celebration of food that is good for us, good for the planet and good for our future.  Focused on climate action on a plate, over 30 events will take place across the city from 15th to 22nd October showcasing sustainable, local, seasonal and climate-friendly food. The Festival asks everyone to consider what goes on their plates and to explore what they can do to make a difference.  Individuals can make a pledge through the Climate Charter developed by Cambridge Carbon Footprint and Cambridge City Council.  More information here

Join Cambridge Sustainable Food for a full and fun packed family and climate friendly day of stalls and activities at the Cambridge Museum of Technology on October 26th. There'll be lots going on throughout the day exploring the festivals theme - Climate Action on a plate!

The Schoolreaders Organisation have advised that there are schools local to Cherry Hinton with vacancies for reading volunteers.
Health experts are encouraging people age 40-74 to have their free NHS Health Check to help detect potential problems before they do real damage.  An NHS Health Check is designed to spot early signs of stroke, kidney disease, heart disease, type 2 diabetes or dementia and gives people the opportunity to take steps earlier to help lower the risk of developing one of these conditions such as weight control and exercise.
If you’re aged 40-74 years, call or visit your GP now to get your Free NHS Health Check. https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/nhs-health-check/
If you’re unable to book with your GP, contact your local Healthy You service https://orlo.uk/NMlQz or call on us on 0333 005 0093 or text: healthyu to 60777.

October marks 18 years since the very first Parkrun event in Bushy Park in London. Today, parkrun events take place every Saturday morning at more than 2,000 locations in 23 countries across 6 continents. 
Despite the name of the event featuring the word ‘run’, there is absolutely no pressure to run at a parkrun event. You are more than welcome to walk the 5km course and walking is a great way to soak up the atmosphere and be part of the parkrun community. Walking is a fantastic form of physical activity and regular walking has both physical and mental health benefits.
All walking paces are welcome at parkrun and each event has at least one dedicated volunteer who is a tail walker who always stays at the back of the event and will finish last after all other participants.  Our local Parkrun is held at Coldhams Common on a Saturday morning starting at 9am.  There's a great atmosphere and everyone is encouraged to do what they can - runners and walkers.
