Speaker: Mary Dicken The talk considers the women who led the Suffragettes, how the movement began, the methods it used to publicise the cause, some of which were controversial, the propaganda both for and against giving women the vote and the final outcome. Date: Tuesday 15th April 2014. Time: 8.00 pm in the Village Hall. Everyone is very welcome. Small charge for non-members.
A Holiday Club is being arranged for Primary aged children from May 26-30th mornings. These will be run by John Hardwick a trained youth leader and entitled ‘Cops and Robbers’.

You can now buy your tickets for Haslingfield Little Theatre’s latest production: 84 Charing Cross Road, which is being performed on 15, 16 and 17 May at 7.45 p.m. at Haslingfield Village Hall.
This wonderful, warm, moving play follows the true correspondence between an outspoken and wise-cracking New York writer (Helene Hanff), and a rather more staid and proper antiquarian bookseller in London (Frank Doel); this contrasting couple being drawn together through their mutual love of literature. The play spans a twenty-year period – from 1949 post-war Britain to the end of the “swinging sixties”.
After the 6.30am Sunrise Service on Barrington Hill on Easter Sunday (20th April) an Easter Breakfast will be served from 7.30-9.30am at the Methodist Church. Proceeds to charity. Why not start your Easter Day with a cooked breakfast even if Barrington Hill is toooo early?

The outbreak of war in late 1914 seems to have had an immediate impact upon employment patterns in the town. An article in the Cambridge Chronicle of 6th November reported ‘How Cambridge is affected by the War’:
1. Of Parish Clerks; Retired and New
An article on our retired Parish Clerk Janet Hendy appeared in C&V previously. Janet has been a mainstay of HPC proceedings for eleven years and will be a hard act to follow. Existing and previous councillors and others attended a farewell gathering at the Chairman’s house on 28th February 2014. Our thanks go to Mike Hendy too who has been so helpful behind the scenes over the years and continues to volunteer for more.
It’s hard to believe that at the beginning of April we will have been up and running for a year. Country Kitchen has flourished in a very short space of time.
