My Life Behind Bars”

The Queen’s Head in Newton is one of only a handful of pubs to have appeared in every edition of the Good Beer Guide. The list of landlords since 1729 has just 18 entries with the names displayed on the wall in the simply furnished but timeless public bar. David Short, a man of many talents and an interesting speaker, will be talking about his experiences of running his pub, The Queen’s Head, for over 53 years. He will also present a short history of the development of the beer trade in England from before Roman times.  Tuesday 13th November 2018, 8.00pm, Haslingfield Village Hall.
Cheers! Everyone welcome, hope to see you there.

Village Society Talk

 The new season of Haslingfield Village Society talks begins with one of the Society’s favourite speakers, Michael Coles, who will speak about “Further Travels in India – Weaving about in Gujarat.” Few overseas visitors make their way to the state of Gujarat. This is the State of Mahatma Gandhi, where he encouraged craft skills and started his non-violence journey to independence. Gujarat is in parts densely populated but elsewhere a desert, and the home for many people making exquisite textiles. This talk will take us from the big cities, through the villages, to the Arabian Sea. Tuesday, 18th September 2018, 8:00 PM, Haslingfield Village Hall.
Everyone is very welcome to any of our events and meetings. Members and youngsters are free. A small charge is made for visitors.
