“Energy Saving is a modern priority, not just a responsibility for governments,
but also for us in our homes.”
On Tuesday 19 October at 8.00 p.m. in the Village Hall, Dr. Martin Roach will talk about this vital issue. He will review energy consumption in the average home, with ideas on how to reduce our usage. The talk has been organised by the Village Society – everyone is welcome to attend.
Playwright, producer and actor Nick Warburton will be guest speaker at the Haslingfield Village Society on Tuesday, 16 November. Nick will relate how he began writing plays for the radio, many of which you may have heard on BBC broadcasts. It promises to be a very interesting evening about what goes into the entertainment we enjoy. Everyone is very welcome to the Village Society talks.
Venue: Haslingfield Village Centre Date: 16 November Time: 8.00 p.m
The first Haslingfield Dog Show was held on Well House Meadow on 11 September 2010.
The ring was set up and the team were ready for the entries; people started arriving and the heavens opened; the water had to be continually swiped off the table with David standing with umbrellas hovering over it; people trying to write on soggy paper whilst holding onto their dogs – a good start. It was only the glimpse of blue sky on the horizon that kept us going.
Haslingfield Lawn Tennis Club has two courts in the recreation ground next to the playground and village hall.
Non-members can use the courts by booking them and paying a small fee at the village shop.
For further details and a membership form see the 2010 newsletter (pdf)

For many villagers, Tuesday evenings just won’t be the same. On 25 May, “The Happy Plaice” Fish & Chips van made its last visit to Haslingfield. However, there is hope on the horizon – we have been told by Karen Martell, Director of “The Happy Plaice”, that they are hoping to be able to resume the service, and are actively looking for the right person to take over….more news on the website, as and when.
