Cambridge Society of York
The Cambridge Society of York was begun in about 1938. Its aim was to help people who read at the University of Cambridge keep in touch with each other and with the University.
Our recent tradition has been to have two meetings a year. One is a formal dinner or lunch, often with a speaker from the University. The other is a summer party, which is an informal meal together in a local pub after we have visited a place of interest.
Each of these events helps us to do what was originally intended, that is, to promote friendship among local Cambridge Alumni and to keep in touch with present-day Cambridge.
There is a very small membership fee, currently £10. This is just to provide for communication about each event.
We have a current list of about 60 members from all walks of life and many good friendships have resulted.
We are very keen to let any Cambridge Alumni in this area know that we exist and to welcome them at our events.
We are also ready to welcome new ideas from different age groups.
For details of forthcoming events, please contact the Chairman whose details appear below.
