The traffic survey running on Church Street recently as can be seen from the rubber cables running across the road. Shortly after the survey started this blue car was parked next to the cables. The survey has now stopped and the car has gone as well. The presence of the car would have slowed down the traffic going past, since it effectively makes it a single carriageway Hence the results of the survey would not be valid.
The old bake house on Well House Meadow will be open on Saturday, 16 June , between 10.00 and 12.00 am. Selections of photographs and documents from the village archive will be on display, and members of the Village Society will be on hand to explain the history of the bake house and the various old artifacts that are stored there.

Why not become a volunteer driver with the Haslingfield and Harlton Community Car Scheme?
The scheme helps people who don’t have access to a car to get to medical appointments and other essential visits. As a volunteer driver you are completely in control of how much – or how little – driving you do: you provide details of your general availability to the Scheme Coordinator, and when the Coordinator contacts you by phone or e-mail to ask if you can do a particular drive, you can say Yes or No – no pressure is applied!
Drivers receive compensation for fuel used, 30p/mile from the users and an additional 15p/mile claimed from Cambridge County Council.
We need more volunteer drivers, particularly as we head into the summer holidays. If you are interested, or would like further information, please contact Joanna Fullick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please find agenda for the Parish Council meeting on 11th June in the Village Hall at 19:30.
