Not many communities mix village character with business and industry as we do in H&I. The legacy of Chivers is still with us of course with the continuing successful operation of what is now Histon Sweet Spreads but it’s also what’s given us Vision Park which employs 2000 people or thereabouts.
Several organisations have their headquarters here, some are discrete whilst some advertise their presence as little more. I’d always suspected that the International Whaling Commission liked to keep a low profile until I saw the whale shaped weathervane atop one of its buildings.
I’ve had to stretch my definition a little perhaps to include the two H&I based multi-academy trusts so as to make up the list of 10. If you know of any other substantial organisations based here let’s identify them and add them to the list.
