Mill Road Events

We don’t have time to scour every Mill Road event in order to publish it here. But here’s where anybody holding any event in or around Mill Road can add their event in the comments section. And don’t forget to include a link to your own website.

Alternatively, if you email us at info@mill-road.com with details of your event, we’ll do our best to put it up on this page. Don’t forget to include a flyer for your event (jpeg/png/tiff/pdf – but not .doc/.docx or .odt as they’re unlikely to display correctly).

And what counts as an ‘event’? See the guide, at the foot of the page.

Drop in meeting – Earl of Beaconsfield Tuesday 27th November 13:00 – 20:00

Diane Rowe, Customer Relationship Manager of Spencer Group – who are Govia Thameslink Railways contractors – has arranged a set of drop-in meeting at the Earl of Beaconsfield, 133 Mill Road, Cambridge, CB1 3AA on Tuesday 27th November 11:00 – 13:00 ; 14:00 – 16:00; 17:00 – 19:00

This will be in the small the Library/Bar-billiards room across the courtyard at the rear. Level access – for anyone living with mobility disabilities – can be made through the gate in Great Eastern Street. Similarly, anyone uncomfortable entering premises licensed to sell alcoholic beverages, will not need to walk through the pub.

NOTE: GTR say, “We are looking to provide planned periods of pedestrian access throughout the period.”

“Planned periods” implies a lack of commitment to continuous pedestrian access. GTR make no mention of cycle access.

As this is in the week leading up to Mill Road Winter Fair on Saturday 1st December 2018, this is probably the wort time for Mill Road’s Traders.

CamCycle’s drop-in public consultations about a vision for Mill Road

Monday November 26 from 4-7pm at St Barnabas Church
Tuesday December 4 from 4-7pm at St Philips Church

Liz Irvin, Camcycle Volunteer, writes…

Dear Mill Road Bridges,
I’m a CamCycle volunteer helping out with our Mill Road campaign.
I am pleased to see that you have published Martin Lucas-Smith’s article about our vision for Mill Road with no through-traffic, which would allow more room for pedestrians, cyclists and delivery vans, reduce congestion, improve air quality and make the street a more pleasant destination. We think the closure of the bridge next summer is a great opportunity to trial elements of our vision. We would love the Mill Road community’s input, and would appreciate Mill Road Bridges being involved in this process.
We are holding two drop-in public consultations over the coming weeks to gather the views of residents, traders and visitors to Mill Road.
Kind regards,
Liz Irvin
Camcycle Volunteer
We say:
It would be great if these two events were to attract a large attendance by a lively crowd to further the debate.
