Wild West Villages Group Meeting

We are a group of people interested in the environment, wildlife, sustainability and getting families out in nature. We came together after the screening of ‘wetheuncivilised’ in February and are still in the process of talking about what things we’d like to do, but on the table are talks about the Transition movement and sustainable shopping, more film screenings, recycled art projects, a repair café and, on the 21st of April, a families walk to the wild spaces in Haslingfield.

Our next meeting will take place on 10 April at 7.30 in the Little Rose pub lounge bar. If you are interested in any of the things mentioned above, and live in Haslingfield, Harlton, Barrington or Harston, please come along.

Next Village Society Talk – “Mercy Ships”

Presented by Jill Pearce

Ships that bring hope to the despairing, healing to the damaged, and health to the ill are to be rejoiced in.  We offer hope, health and healing to the world’s poor.  Currently our hospital ship – “Africa Mercy” – is docked at Cameroon.  Her mission there  for 10 months is to carry out operations that could not otherwise be afforded by the people; on board they pay nothing.  The teams of nurses, doctors, surgeons and other crew members from all over the world donate their time on the world’s largest non-governmental floating hospital, for free.

Haslingfield Village Hall, Tuesday 20th February 2018 at 8.00pm. Everyone is very welcome. Members and youngsters are free, Visitors £2.  Enjoy a ‘cuppa’ and a chat in the interval.

As part of the city-wide Films for Our Future Festival, Pivotal, an arts organisation for sustainability, is screening this beautiful documentary about a young couple on a quest throughout Britain for a more satisfying and sustainable way of living. Discouraged by their urban lifestyles, Lily and Pete set out to discover other ways of living in the modern world. Their journey didn’t provide them with easy answers, but it did inspire them and introduce them to some of the new ways of thinking that may just change the way we all live and help to protect the planet.
