PAST AND CURRENT PROJECTS
Here are some of the projects we have been working on.
Our mission is to get local people together by creating events, improving facilities and services, and being a campaigning voice for our diverse community. The REC project, originated by local resident and Chair of the NCCP, Ricardo Arbelaez, sought to identify the needs of the local community, and the issues that our community faces. A emerging theme was that of deprevation, and underutilisation of the facilities on offer.
The REC is one of the earliest projects when the NCCP was first formed. Filmed by Andrej of Mediamerge, the project
THE ARBURY CARNIVAL 2017
‘Celebrating 40 years of carnival’
Saturday 10th June 2017
The Arbury festival took place on the 10th of June and was celebrating its 40th anniversary. Stalls holders were invited to dress up and decorate their stalls in line with the theme and to pick a decade from the 70’s to present day.
This popular event takes place every year on the second Saturday of June and is organised by the Arbury Carnival Organising Committee.
THE GARDENING CLUB
The Gardening Club is run by Cambridge Growing Spaces here in Cambridge. The project aims to reclaim unloved and underused public spaces around the city of Cambridge and transform them using edible landscaping.
Regular events for the whole family
The NCCP are hosting the club at 37 Lawrence Way where participants plant fruit & vegetables in our wonderful community garden. This family-friendly gardening club will give you the opportunity to meet new people, learn and share skills.
