Well, it seems like yesterday that we opened Country Kitchen, but it was in fact a whole 5 years ago. How time flies when you’re having fun! On Easter Monday we made a few changes to the shop, and are now pleased to have 2 deli counters. This allows us to have a dedicated deli counter for all the lovely home-made food we produce ourselves in the kitchen, and one for cheeses, olives, cured meats and other delicacies from our wonderful suppliers. The new arrangement will allow our continued expansion and growth, and provides a little more space for everyone. Please do pop in and see the changes. Last week we enjoyed birthday cake and bubbly that went down well with customers and staff alike! We thank all our fabulous customers for your continued support and look forward to seeing you in the ’new look’ shop soon.

Pilot and Author, Chris Sullivan, will speak on the story of R.A.F. Gransden Lodge. After being put to valuable use by the R.A.F.’s Bomber and Transport Commands, it was subsequently the venue for the first post-war motor races to take place in the U.K. After a long period during which it was under consideration as a base for Cold War American forces it was returned to agriculture, until the Cambridge Gliding Centre set up operations there in the early 1990s. Haslingfield Village Society, Tuesday, 17th April, 8:00PM, Haslingfield Village Hall.
And we do not plan to stop here. We have recently purchased new smart tables for the hall. We plan to fit new upvc security windows to replace the old wooden ones which are in need of replacement. We would like to smarten up the place with new curtains to give a more modern look. These curtains are still from the pre-1991 hall.
We have replaced the front door with a pair of new ones and maintain the borders around the front door. And with funding we would like to modernise the hall and provide more storage for users. We also plan to extend the kitchen area to welcome a new generation of users.
We believe the village hall has been shown to be a real asset to the local community and would like to thank all the people who have helped to raised funds and contribute to make the hall what it is today.
