St Ives Heritage Open Days 8th to 10th September 2017

Heritage Open Days is England's largest festival of history and culture, bringing together over 2500 organisations, 5000 events and 40,000 volunteers. Every year in September, places across the country throw open their doors to celebrate their heritage, community and history. It’s your chance to see hidden places and try out new experiences – and it’s all FREE.

St Ives is participating in this celebration with 12 of the town’s most impressive buildings open to the public; many are putting on special displays or exhibitions. Full details of who is participating and the dates and times they are open are shown in the poster below. Children and families are most welcome. Several buildings are not normally open to the general public so this is a great opportunity to get a ‘behind the scenes’ look.

HODS 2017

Dear All,

A few weeks ago I wrote and stated I did not expect to write again before September but HDC have a consultation open on the Huntingdonshire Local Plan to 2036. This is the document the council will use to guide their approach to the planning requirements of the district for the next 20 years.
The Town Council have decided to hold an open meeting to air some of the main points of the plan as they affect St Ives. The Society has offered to help advertise the meeting. The Town Council have requested that HDC provide their presentation.
The meeting is at 7pm this Wednesday in the Corn Exchange. I apologise for the short notice but hope you will be able to attend, you will have the opportunity to guide both the Society's and the Town Council's submissions to the consultation.

Kind regards

David Stewart,
Chairman, Civic Society St. Ives

The St Ives Town Council will be holding a public consultation session to discuss the Town Plan to 2036. It will be held on Wednesday 9th August 2017 in the St Ives Corn Exchange at 7.00 pm.
