Trumpington Farm Company – Farm Tour, Tuesday, 21st June

Forgive this unsolicited message, however as users of the Cantelupe Cycling Access scheme I thought you might be interested to know that we are holding an evening tour of the farm next week exclusively for residents of Haslingfield.  This will give you an opportunity to hear about what we do here and ask those questions you’ve always wanted to know the answers to.  The tour will be led by Owner/Director Richard Pemberton and our Estate General Manager, David Knott and will start from Cantelupe Farm at 6.00pm.  You will be taken to various places of interest on the Estate in a trailer.  It is a great chance to hear and ask questions about our work here.

Race Cancelled

image001I am sorry to inform every one that we have cancelled the Adults’ Race around the Village due to be held on Saturday at 2.00 pm.  Application forms were due in by last Friday and to date we have received just two entries.  The 1977 event proved popular but not so in 2016.

There is however still lots going on at the weekend at we look forward to seeing you there for all, if not part of the festivities.

Best wishes     Jenny
