The Wellcome Genome Campus and South Cambridgeshire District Council are delighted to invite u3a members to our Science & Sports Fun Day!
What’s happening? Join us for a celebration of science and sport, and to welcome the Queen’s Baton Relay ahead of the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham. On completion of its route, the baton will have travelled 90,000 miles and visited 72 nations and territories! There will be a range of local entertainment, locally‐sourced food and crafts, fairground rides and lots of science and sporting activities. A family fun run with races throughout the afternoon is available to book – so don’t forget your trainers! The event will take place on Saturday 9 July 2022 from 12:30pm to 7:30pm at the Wellcome Genome Campus, Saffron Walden, CB10 1SA.
