Bio-diversity – Grow your community

These are small pilot community led projects to develop biodiversity led by locals in their streets. To date we have patches: on 3 Wulfstan way, 1 Gunhild Close, 1 Beaumont Road/Almoners Avenue and 1 Greenlands- to support Cambridge City Council Biodiversity Strategy. If you would like to do something similar on your road, please get in touch.

Speed watch

We have received 2 requests to review speeding on Cavendish and Gunhild which the Speed Watch group will be dealing with. We also have one new volunteer who has come forward. If you are concerned about speeding on your street or would like to volunteer please get in touch.

Wellcome Genome Campus Tour

If you are a community group and would like to see something of what goes on there, they are offering tours in September.  For more details see https://www.wellcomeconnectingscience.org/project/community-group-visits-to-the-wellcome-genome-campus/?dm_i=6Y2D,PL2I,SIRXY,3EI95,1
