Upcoming Social Events for 2019

Saturday 23rd or Sunday 24th March - Thriplow Daffodil Weekend (date TBC) Departure 10am

 This is a lovely event (especially if it is good weather - though we had snow last year!). This is near Duxford so not too far away. We are proposing that members car share so as many of us who would like to go along to this can. 


Entry is Adults £8, Children 5-16 £4, under 5 free (car parking is free too). If you buy tickets early on the website there is a 10% discount.  Or you can pay on the day.

“Every year, up to 10,000 people visit Thriplow to experience the warm and friendly atmosphere of our Daffodil Weekend charity fundraising event, run entirely by volunteers. 


Over two days, visitors walk the car-free village to look at the daffodil displays, visit the attractions and open gardens, and potter around the stalls. Refreshments are served in the tea rooms with homemade cakes and sandwiches, or delicious hot street food can be eaten in The Taste of Thriplow while listening to live music. 


For months beforehand and over the weekend itself, virtually everyone in the village (and many neighbouring villagers) volunteers to help organise the event – be it baking cakes, helping serve teas, working in the car park or picking up litter at the end of the day. 

Every year, the exceptional Thriplow and it's surrounding communities work hard to pull off one of the best loved charity events in Cambridgeshire.” 

Saturday 6th April - Visit to the Hillings Residential Home in Eaton Socon

Please volunteer if you can to come along to visit the elderly residents at The Hillings.  We will take sandwiches and cake with us for an afternoon tea.  Perhaps have a sing song or some games/quizzes with approximately 15 residents.  

They absolutely loved it the last time we went there so let's go and put a smile on their faces again.

Saturday 13th April - Afternoon Tea at Poppy's Tea Rooms, Church Walk, St Neots at 3pm

Why not come along for afternoon tea on Saturday 6th October at Poppy’s Tea Rooms. The cost is £11.75. You can bring your own wine/bubbly and they will provide the glasses. 

Wednesday 17th April - Annual Federation Day at Burgess Hall, St Ives at 10.30am

At this year’s Federation Day the speakers will be Simon King OBE [Naturalist, Conservationist, Author – known for BBC’s Planet Earth, Blue Planet, Springwatch and Autumnwatch]; Sue Marchant, Broadcaster on BBC Cambridgeshire and Jill Wadsworth, Trustee of Karuri School Project.
