We can be found on Holland Street, near Alexandra Gardens and Mitcham’s Corner, it has been a place for people in Cambridge to meet, relax and enjoy one another’s company for over 100 years and we are volunteer run.
The New Chesterton Institute (NCI) building was donated by the vicar of St Luke's Church on Victoria Road in 1885, and was originally intended to be used as a reading room. It eventually became a sports and social club.
We recently celebrated our 130 year anniversary!
We are now starting a new chapter in the book by becoming a charity.
Annual General Meeting (AGM)
Thanks to all the members who contributed to the Annual General Meeting of the NCI each year. Outcomes of the meeting, including the list of newly elected officers were posted on the notice board after the AGM.
NCI Community Association CIO
Cambridge CB4 3DL
The NCI is now run slightly differently to before being a charity.
There used to be a committee that was voted in during the AGM. Now there are a group of 10 trustees that run the CIO and a group of directors, currently 4, that run the CIC.
The trustees will decide on decisions on the building, similar to being landlords. The directors are basically the group that will now be running the bar as a business.
The bar now has to be self funding.
We actively encourage our members to volunteer so that we can keep going.
We are looking for volunteers and donors to help with:
Promoting the NCI
Fundraising for refurbishment
If you have a trade then please email us if you would like to donate your time to help.
There are plenty of ways to help out!!
Please get in touch to find out how you can help, or to propose a new project.
We are a very short walk from the tennis courts on Jesus Green, the playground at Alexandria Gardens on Carlysle Road and the Portland Arms pub in Mitcham's corner.
The nearest pay and display car park is Castle park, a 5 minute walk along Victoria Road towards Huntingdon Road.
