St Ives

In St Ives there is a fifteenth century stone bridge which spans the Great Ouse and was dedicated to St Leger in 1426. There is also a chapel in the town which was once used as a private house and a public house known as the ‘Little Hell’.  In 1928 the chapel was bought by George Day and presented to the town where still to this day some religious services are held.

Many years ago St Ives was a river-port and had a thriving market mostly dealing with cattle. The market is still there on Mondays and Fridays.   The town has grown considerably over the last decade with many people working in Cambridge. The town now has a Guided Bus going from St Ives with stops at key villages until it reaches Cambridge Town Center or Addenbrooke's Hospital.

The Club

The Club was chartered in 1962. Its 22 members enjoy great friendship and do like having fun.  They are keen to 'Make a difference' to those in need both locally and overseas, giving personal and doing enjoyable fund raising activities. The club has strong links with St Ives Rotary Club.
