We organise a range of events, projects and activities in your local area. Our team work in local centres, schools, on the local parks and community spaces.
As Trumpington continues to grow, we continue to support the welcoming of the new communities in Clay Farm, Trumpington Meadows and Glebe Farm. If you would like to get involved in welcoming new residents, setting up a new community activity, or to find out other ways to get involved you can contact us to discuss further.

Community chest funding
Thanks to developer contributions, there are some funds available to help kick-start new community activities. This might be to help fund a football club, a social activity for residents, a street party or even a toddler group.
Contact us if you need support to get a project off the ground, or you have an idea but are not sure where to start.
The fund has helped 24 projects between 2013 and 2019, distributing over £5,300. It has helped establish nine new community groups and strengthen others. Funded projects include children's projects, sports clubs, celebrations and more.

If you'd like to know more about Trumpington's growing communities, pop along to the Southern Fringe Community Forum.

The next event will be held in May - date to be confirmed.
Trumpington networking lunches
