We were really pleased that so many of you came to our meeting last night and it was great to see so much support for the Urban Country Park. I’ll be adding more details soon, but for those of you who weren’t there, Anthony Carpen (aka @Puffles2010 or @ACarpenDigital) was good enough to record most of the evening. Here’s the first video. Be sure to give it a ‘like’ on Vimeo.

Thanks for the Great Turnout!

    Many thanks to Chris Havergil from the Cambridge News for the coverage of the Lake Project and the meeting on Wednesday evening. In his article “It’s beach weather… so why don’t we build one in Cambridge? Major survey launched over plans for sand and swimming at new urban country park” he mentions the idea of the so called Romsey Beach. Just to clarify the Cambridge Lakes Project position on this idea: we have consulted with the residents bordering on the end of the southern lake, the site where the this beach was first talked about, and they are overwhelmingly against the idea sue to proximity of their houses and noise. Therefore our group does not support the creation of a beach here, and it is not in our plans. This area is not even in “Romsey”, but in Cherry Hinton, so the beach was always misnamed, and therefore the interests of those residents in Cherry Hinton are of paramount importance.
    We still enthusiastically support water access and beach type facilities in the new Urban Country Park, but only in a location suitable for the purpose.
