What's your Eddington number?

Eddington Number Challenge

Eddington Number Challenge returns


As the weather gets warmer we would like to invite you to take part in the Eddington Number Challenge - NWCD


The Eddington Number campaign was devised to get more people cycling, running and walking in the Cambridge area.  The campaign is based around the Eddington number for cycling – which takes its name from its inventor, Sir Arthur Eddington, who was also the astrophysicist that the Eddington district is named after.

"Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and South Lincolnshire Mind (CPSL Mind) Good Life project opened in Cambridge.


ERA News last February (Cantab Health Meeting) described an initiative bringing together regional healthcare professionals, voluntary organisations and local communities such as Eddington to form the Cantab Integrated Neighbourhood. The aim is to improve the health and wellbeing of the community by sharing resources and harnessing the voluntary sectors.

Part of this initiative, the University Good Life project, has just gone live in Cambridge. It is a partnership between CPSL Mind, the University of Cambridge and Anglia Ruskin University bringing mental health support in the form of Good Mood Cafés, Open Door calm spaces and information sessions.

Pasta à la Pieter


This weeks recipe comes from Eddington resident Pieter, who is the chair of the Eddington Residents Association and often helps out with the Eddington Eats community restaurant at Storey’s Field Centre. He has been an Eddington resident for 1 year and 7 months.


Hi everyone,
I am Pieter and am from Belgium. I enjoy cooking my own dinners but am not too keen on elaborate or time-consuming cooking sessions.  I am providing you with a quick and easy, but tasty, recipe. Ideal for those moments when you do not have much time or on days that you had way too many Zoom meetings and you just do not have the energy anymore to prepare an elaborate meal.

This weeks recipe comes from Eddington resident Argyris, who is a volunteer at the Eddington Eats community restaurant at Storey’s Field Centre and has been an Eddington resident for 1 year and 6 months.


I am Argyris and I come from Cyprus the land of halloumi. These halloumi breads (halloumotes) are very popular for breakfast (or any time of day!) and can be found at any bakery. Here is my version of them:

This weeks recipe comes from Alice, who is a volunteer at the Eddington Eats community restaurant at Storey’s Field Centre and has been an Eddington resident for 1 year and 2 months.


Hi, my name is Alice and, like Lis, I love to cook. Since the beginning of its adventure, I have followed the development of Eddington Eats and participated as much as I could to help Lis make it a success. Cooking together for our neighbours has been an amazing experience and I have learnt a lot amongst the volunteers. Unfortunately, in this period of pandemic, we can’t meet and share a diner together as we have all moved to home working and self-isolation. But, this is an opportunity to test new recipes. And here is my new invention: an apple cake!

Here are the ingredients you will need:

You may have guessed it by now, but in case it wasn’t clear I will let you in on the secret: I love to cook. For most of my adult years I have been cooking my own food, which brings great joy to me. However, when I moved to Eddington, I thought I would love to share this joy with other people and as a bonus get to know my neighbours. So in April 2019 I started the Eddington Eats community restaurant. Little did I know that cooking for groups of people is a completely different experience than cooking for myself.

Eddington Bear Hunt

Looking for something to keep your little ones busy during your one walk a day? Why not go on a Bear Hunt in Eddington?
Inspired by the popular children’s book ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’ by Rosen and Oxenbury, people around the world are ‘hiding’ bears in their windows.
The bears are meant to cheer up young children and their parents who are being kept indoors.
Below is a map of the bears currently spotted around Eddington. Do you have one in your window as well, which is not on our map yet, let us know…

Eddington Eats is moving online!

 

Dear neighbours,

I hope you are all safe and well inside, whether you are still in Eddington or staying with family elsewhere. My thoughts are with you. During these times it’s crucial to maintain our distance from others to prevent the spreading of COVID-19 and sadly that means that the Eddington Eats community dinner has been cancelled for the foreseeable future.

Good neighbours

[Updated 2 April 2020]

The West Cambridge community are collaborating and helping one another in the difficult times of the current pandemic.

A noticeboard outside Sainsburys, Eddington, offered help with grocery shopping, picking up necessities, walking the dog, 'a friendly chat and more' with the contact details of Hope Bretscher and David Palecek.

David, 32, who is a researcher at the University of Cambridge said "I saw the numbers related to the coronavirus and I thought that it would be really important to offer help specifically to older people."

They have currently helped a 63-year-old man living in Eddington who has displayed mild symptoms of Coronavirus.
