I went to King’s College to the annual Cambridge Forum for the Construction Dinner where I presented some awards to the construction industry.
This was a conference where different groups from around Cambridge and the County meet up to discuss what issues are on going in the area.
There were speakers from Cam Trust, Police,Cambridgeshire Learning disability and Granta School
To celebrate the Launch of Cambridge Live there was a baby grand piano in the Council Chambers and as I believe this is the first time we have ever had a piano in the Council Chambers well.
The Cambridge Community development team organised a trip to Wimpole Hall for families who find it hard to take their children out for the day, due to the lack of money or no transport.
It is my duty as Mayor to receive an Election Writ from Her Majesty The Queen asking us to hold an election in the City of Cambridge after Parliament dissolved.
This dates back years and the Writ is delivered by recorded post from the royal mail.
I spent this morning with a group of 150 volunteers helping to clean up the River Cam. We were picking up litter along a stretch of the tow path and some other members were pulling rubbish out of the Cam with grabbing hooks. It surprised me how much was pulled out from the river including bikes, shopping trolley’s and even iron girders, there will be another clean up later this year so if you can spend some time please come and join in.
The Centre really is the jewel in the King’s Hedges crown providing a wide range of social and cultural activities for our local residents. The recent redevelopment has greatly improved the facilities available here, and it was with great pleasure I attended the opening.
