On 20 & 21 May, Haslingfield Little Theatre will be performing their Spring Production: Two Coarse Plays with a Two Course Meal. The two hilarious plays are:
Trapped, which is based on a country house thriller
Pride at Southanger Park, a romance set in Regency times
And, of course, in true coarse acting spirit, everything that can go wrong does go wrong within both plays!
Tickets are now on sale at Haslingfield Village Shop and the Little Rose pub. They cost £12, and include a two-course meal. The audience will be grouped around tables of 8 people, so you can either buy tickets for yourselves, or why not gather together some friends and book a whole table for what promises to be a very entertaining evening!
The first of this year’s monthly jazz concerts will take place in Haslingfield Village Hall this Friday,
14 January. For more info. please click here: http://haslingfieldvillage.co.uk/wp/?page_id=2287

New members always welcome for a fun evening of dancing, a bit like a barn dance. We usually meet on Tuesdays between 8pm and 10pm every month (except July and August) at either Haslingfield or Harston Village Hall. It costs just £1 per evening.
It doesn’t matter if you have never done it before, our expert callers stand on the stage and tell us all what to do. New members are always welcome, and you do not need to live in the villages. You do not need to bring a partner. We just come to have fun – we do not take “getting it right” very seriously.
All the dance dates are in the calendar. For more information, click here or phone Clive on (01223) 870741.
Do you know about the opportunity to get faster broadband for those of us on the Harston exchange (which includes Haslingfield) by voting on a BT website?
If 1000 votes are lodged for the Harston exchange we could be fast-tracked for an upgraded service, which will not only affect BT customers but those on other networks too.
The way to vote is to go to www.racetoinfinity.bt.com
– it takes less than a minute to do, and as at Sunday 10 October , we still have quite a way to go before we reach the 1000 votes needed, so please “spread the word” after voting yourself.
We now have our new blue bins. The first collection using this new refuse disposal system will take place on Friday 15 October.

“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.
