Family Events – North Cambridge Community Partnership

Back to Activities

The North Cambridge Community Partnership runs events for children and families in Arbury and King's Hedges. Their regular events include a toddler group, Lego Club and Science Club for children, and gardening and cooking clubs for people of all ages. Everyone is welcome.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • It’s a great way of meeting people, socialising and forming new friendships;
  • You and your children can learn new skills, which may give you a confidence boost;
  • It can help you feel more connected to your local community – and there are opportunities to volunteer.
