Winner of the Alan Ball Award for Outstanding Community Publication 2021


Commendation from the Cambridgeshire Association for Local History 2023

The book is available at the Museum of Cambridge on Northampton Street, David's Bookshop at 16 St Edward's Passage, and Waterstone's on Sidney Street, Cambridge, or directly from us if you email contact@histonroadmemories.uk

We are awarding grants to community projects - specifically in the area around Histon Road covered in the book.

We are looking for projects which require funding in the region of £300-£500. We would expect a breakdown of how the money will be spent and a report when the project is completed. Please email contact@histonroadmemories.uk for an application form. You will need to provide us with detailed plans for a community project. 

So far grants have been awarded to Richmond Road Residents' Association (RRRA) who work with the Akeman Street Community Centre in providing breakfasts to those in need. Also to the North Cambridge Community Partnership (NCCP) for their Reading Group.
