Cherry Hinton Residents Association

Cherry Hinton Residents' Association developed from the Colville Residents' group and earlier this year we adopted a new constitution which recognised that our aim is to represent the views of all Cherry Hinton Residents.Our objectives are:

To safeguard and promote the interest of residents in the area on matters concerning housing and the environment.

To help to improve living conditions, community facilities and services for residents living in the Group’s area.

To provide a forum for residents to engage in the decision-making of bodies such as Cambridge City Council and Cambridgeshire County Council.

To assist in the development of a healthy, vibrant and inclusive community including the facilitation of events and activities.


a) Membership shall be open to all people, irrespective of tenure, resident in Cherry Hinton as defined by the City Council boundary.

b) Membership will also be extended to individuals whose working responsibilities support the Group’s objectives.

Current Work

2013 saw the CHRA work with the Cambridge City Council to open the Cherry Hinton Community Hub in the village Library. There is now a dedicated seating area available not only to library users during the day, but also for groups to hire in the evenings or when the Library is closed, details available from the Library. There are tables and chairs available and soon a coffee machine will be installed for users.

A Very Cherry Christmas was a great success in 2013, the event raising nearly £1,000 - £500 will be spent on more Christmas lights for the trees on the corner of Colville Rd with the High Street. This year's event will be on Saturday 22nd November in the Cherry Hinton Village Centre.
