Celebrating the past, respecting the present and seeking to influence the future…


We are a small charity run by local people who are passionate about keeping Cambridge and the neighbouring villages and countryside special. We work hard to ensure that the future growth of Cambridge and its surroundings is of the highest quality to enhance the city’s character, ambiance and reputation.

  • We manage a number of green open spaces and historic buildings for enjoyment by everybody
  • We deliver a packed programme of educational, cultural and recreational events for people of all ages
  • We seek to give a voice to local people on local planning and development issues.

Get involved

Like all small charities we need to raise money every year to help fund the different strands of our work. There are lots of ways that you can support us. You could become a member, which comes with a variety of benefits. You could volunteer to help out at one of the special places we look after. Or you could make a donation. Options include setting up a monthly Direct Debit, supporting one of our fundraising appeals or helping us buy an essential item for one of our properties. However you choose to help, one thing is certain, you’ll be making a difference to the future of Cambridge, its historic buildings and green spaces.
