Well, 2018 has dawned in a rather blustery Cambridge but there’s plenty to look forward to in the city this New Year and I will be writing about a lot of it here in the blog.
People have commented to me that there’s always so much going on but it’s hard to keep track of it all, so I’ve decided to create a “What’s On” listing for each month. It’ll show an eclectic mix of events that come to my attention and I’ll update it through the month, so it’ll be worth checking back every so often. And if you’d like to get in touch about an event that could be listed, please do so via my Contact page.
A few foodie thoughts to share for this month ….. if you are giving Veganuary a go, I recommend Stem + Glory, which I profiled in December, for delicious plant based dishes. And please note that The Locker Cafe (see September’s post) is currently closed for a kitchen refit and will reopen on Tuesday 9 January with an expanded weekend brunch menu and live music on Sunday afternoons. Their “Pots for Poverty” sale, which I wrote about in December, raised over £1800 for Jimmy’s Night Shelter and CamCRAG, which is a fabulous achievement. You can find all these posts under Recent Posts or in Archives on the right hand side of this page.
And finally, if your place, like mine, is looking rather dull now that the Christmas decorations are back in the loft, why not nip down to Cambridge Market for some early Spring flowers? These daffodils are from the flower stall opposite Great St Mary’s Church and are grown by the stallholder in Girton. So you can keep it local and remind yourself that Spring is just around the corner!
