Arthur Rank and Press Relief
This was a re-enactment of when Queen Elizabeth the first visited Cambridge in 1564, she stayed at King’s and visited every college which existed at that time except for Jesus. There was a procession and I and my sergeant of Mace greeted her as we would have done all those years ago.
This was a busy day and I had time for a quick visit to Anglia Ruskin University to see people taking part in ‘Be the change- Cambridge’ event being ran by the university. There was talks on housing, transport, community and various other subjects where people could ask Julian Hubbert and other councillors questions on the changing face of Cambridge.
I paid a visit to the annual Stourbridge fair on Newmarket Road, this is an annual event and dates back years. The was a number of stalls, costumes and dancing from the past years and there was a talk in the Chapel about the history of the fair and the chapel.
As part of Open Cambridge the Council opened up the Council Chambers to the public to see the collection of Maces and artifacts, I also opened up the Mayors Parlour for the public to come along and see where I work and the office.
Today I attended the first anniversary of Enterprising Women Business club held at the science park. If you are a enterprising woman they meet at cafe 24 at the Science Park Milton Road the second Friday of the month, so why not go along and meet up with other enterprising women.
