About Toft

Toft is a small village based in the South West of Cambridgeshire, approximately 6 miles from the City of Cambridge. The parish is intersected by the Greenwich Meridian. In the 2001 Census, Toft had 219 households and a population of 583. The name "Toft" is derived from an old Viking word meaning "curtilage" or "homestead". Toft was listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 (as Tofth), then having a population of about 193.

Toft has two churches, St Andrews' Parish Church and the Methodist Church, which under a covenant between the two, means they are collectively called "the Church in Toft", sharing both social and religious events for the community.

Given it's size, the village has a surprisingly active social scene with regular coffee mornings, Brownies, Social Club and similar activities. The village hall, known as the People's Hall, has recently been extended and upgraded - this offers excellent facilities and houses the very active Social Club.

The village has a combined Village Store and Post Office. There is a small playground equipped with activity equipment.
