Great turn out of about 15 members for the Cambridge IVC Shrove Tuesday pancake event in Milton. The  cooks turned out some masterpieces and nothing got stuck to the ceiling. Some great chat and all told a very sociable evening was had by all.

Anyway after the voting there was one winner - Nick's Tourists on Kings Parade

Whittlesea Straw Bear Festival

On Saturday 13th Jan. we set off to Whittlesea for what has become a bit of an early season institution-a visit to the Straw Bear Festival. Alan advised an earlier train from Cambridge to make the connection at Ely- which proved a wise decision !

The train as usual was pretty full and on arrival we walked with the crowd into the village. We soon saw the Straw Bear and two smaller bears getting prepared for their dance around the village. They subsequently departed and we followed, stopping to watch Morris and Molly Dancing in various locations- but usually outside pubs. Surprisingly the latter were not on our agenda, probably the only visitors not not have one-or a few - but we did stop for a nice fish and chip lunch.

Photos were taken - although Alan was disappointed that the sun didn't shine as it had on the last two occasions. A great day out !

Hoping for a good IVC crowd in 2019!
