Cambridge Pride 2019

Cambridge's first Pride took place on Saturday 8th June 2019, including a punt parade with each punt decorated in a colour of the rainbow flag and carrying members of local LGBT+ support groups. Diamonds had the yellow punt!

Pandas at Diamonds Central

Panda Grace was born at Diamonds Central on 11th July 2019, and was quickly adopted!

Riding the heatwave

Cambridge set a new UK record for the highest recorded temperature on Thursday 25th July 2019 (38.7 °C). Diamonds met as usual at the Boathouse, where new panda Piglet was born, Panda Grace showed off her new earings and pendant, and Panda Kim Bolton reported on her trip to Brighton Pride.

Diamonds Central, 8 August 2019

The rain held off almost all evening, but not quite long enough for new panda Lorna to be born. Fortunately the band had finished playing by the time the rain forced us inside, so conversation could continue without need for shouting.

Ely Pride, 10 August 2019

Strong winds drove the event inside, but the organisers found room for our stall, complete with giant balloon panda and equally massive flag pole, in the Maltings hall. A good time was had by everyone.

Gem's 2019 Birthday BBQ

Good weather, good food, even better company, and the birth of new panda Barbie. What more could a Diamond want?
