“Things are really moving with Northstowe right now and it’s imperative for our heritage and the community as a whole that local residents continue to be engaged in this development process. This is essential to ensure that the new town fulfills all its obligations to local and future residents”.

Winter 2016

The heritage society now has a Facebook page where you can contact the society quickly and easily by leaving a message. LDHS remains committed to ensuring that there is a museum provided on the former RAF Oakington site. The Anglo-Saxon, Roman and military histories of Longstanton, Oakington and Northstowe warrant a museum so that the heritage assets which are being impacted on by this development can be preserved for generations to come. Please help our work by providing stories, memories and information if you can. Alternatively, please join the society so we can continue with the work we started over ten years ago.

 LDHS receives recognition for our work

The official Northstowe development website now contains a link to ours.

This is a positive development and illustrates that the work of the heritage society is now being taken seriously. LDHS welcomes the positive stance that HCA has taken with regards the reuse of former RAF Oakington buildings and we hope that they will go further and make a commitment to a heritage facility as part of the Phase 2 plans. If HCA are prepared to support our vision for a museum then they can be assured of our support in order to make the vision a reality.
