Welcome to Silk ownership and the forum. I have had my Silk for 7 years (number 38) and its provided me with much entertainment in that time. Not the easiest bike to keep running, but it is entertaining to ride and always attracts a crowd. There are a number of owners in the Oxford, Hampshire, and Wiltshire area which might be a stretch from Cambridge!
The forum members have been of great assistance to me so don't hesitate to ask for any help.
