Sea Scouts, Cycling and Savvy Brides!

This weekend has been a whirlwind of excitement in Cambridgeshire. Not only has the Tour de France departed from central Cambridge, our very own 2nd St Ives Sea Scouts completed their Marathon Paddle and we've started our Summer Sale!!

After a packed out day of happy Brides on Saturday (grabbing some amazing bargains) Jo and I decided to relax on our balcony with a glass of wine whilst we waited in anticipation for the 2nd St Ives Sea Scouts to finish their marathon paddle. Starting at 6.00am the explorer scouts set off from Bedford for a full day of canoeing. They were joined along the way by some of the younger scouts at St Neots and Huntingdon. The 2nd St Ives Sea Scouts are based just along the river from us and are working incredibly hard to raise money to make some much needed improvements to their facilities.

If you would like to donate to this fantastic local group please contact the shop and we can put you in touch with the Group Scout Leader.

Yesterday I was lucky enough to escape the shop to watch the Tour de France departing from Cambridge city centre. I have to say the city was jam packed but it was worth fighting the crowds just to get a glimpse of the peloton. We then went home to watch the rest on the television and I have to say I was astounded at how Beautiful Cambridge looked.

Our Summer Sale is still on with some fab-u-lous bargains still to be had....don't miss out!!!
