We would like to introduce you to Victoria Smith! Victoria is a local nature reserve manager.
We reached out to Victoria and asked if she would share some stories with us from her work on both Coldhams Common and Cherry Hinton Hall. Victoria kindly responded with a wealth of wonderful information and images, which we are very excited to be able to share with you over the coming weeks.
Probably the highlight of Coldham’s common for me is the chalk grassland, this type of grassland is a nationally scare habitat therefore we are particularly lucky to have one on this most urban of sites. This boasts some beautiful plants which are specialist of this type of habitat and consequently not ones you would see every day. Species such as Spiny Rest harrow, Common Knapweed, Ribbed Melliot, Bird’s Foot trefoil, Agrimony, Wild Marjoram and Yarrow to name a few! The presence of these plants also attracts chalk grassland specialist, for example the Marbled White butterfly which has become quite a common sight on the common in and around July. We manage these grasslands mainly with the help of our Conservation Volunteers which is my group of dedicated helpers who meet every week.

📣 Eddie’s lockdown tune of the day
Today’s Lockdown Track. Tag a friend who was in the 200 strong audience choir, which joined Ladysmith Black Mambazo onstage at the 50th anniversary. Were you onstage? What was it like? Are you going to join our virtual choir? We’re ending sharing these lockdown tracks today, but will continue to gather more playlist tracks ready for our at Home celebrations. Thank you to all of those who liked, commented and shared your memories.

Kathryn Price Helen Cook - we were there! Sadly didn't get any videos of it xx
Thanks for these, been some great memories
I was in Bella's choir 😊. Didn't get any video/photos as my then-toddler fell asleep on Hubby. 'Love going to the festival singing workshops as it's the only time I get to sing. Ended up singing on stage 1 again last year along with my son...and Hubby did get some photos this time!
Thanks for this series👍😁
I was in that choir! Such a great thing to be part of.
