Upcoming Event Reminders

East West Rail
This is rather short notice but there is an EWR ‘meet the people’ event tomorrow. They are restarting face-to-face engagement with communities across the East West Rail route. These events are designed to give local residents, businesses and stakeholders an opportunity to understand the project development process, anticipated timescales, and speak face-to-face with members of their team. While they won’t have any new information to share at these events – as they are still reviewing the responses received during the 2021 consultation and considering how the feedback is used to inform plans for the railway – this is an opportunity for them to engage with communities outside the formal consultation process. The drop-in will be: Cambridge: Wednesday 29 June, 2pm – 8pm, The Clayton Hotel, 27-29 Station Rd, Cambridge CB1 2FB https://communityhub.eastwestrail.co.uk/community-events

The day will include Fairground rides, a selection of food offerings, crafts, sporting events, science activities and a family fun run.
