To entertain the whole community, including visitors, and raise money for good causes.

First launched in 2002 the now famous biennial Haslingfield Scarecrow festival will be held this year from  14th to 16th September.   Suggested themes are characters from Roald Dahl or Agatha Christie – or  choose your own ideas.  On previous form up to 200 ‘scarecrows’ will be created (don’t be left out), added to which there will be a host of events and activities, including those at the All Saints’ Church Fete.  To see the weekend programme Read more

The Mower Man – Passing of an Era

Many of John Baker’s “loyal and entertaining customers” took up his invitation to a pie and a pint at River Lane on Saturday 11 August to celebrate his over 50 year’s service to the village, and well beyond.  Some were even observed to have more than one pint, while staying for the pasties (specially imported fresh from the West Country!) was well worth it. 

Those not keen on mending their own garden machinery need have no fear – John will be reincarnated at new premises at Foxcotte Farm, Comberton Road, Barton, CB237BA, from early September, where the same mix of engineering skills and philosophical discussion will continue to be available.

Bake House Opening

The old bake house on Well House Meadow will be open on Saturday, 16 June , between 10.00 and 12.00 am.  Selections of photographs and documents from the village archive will be on display, and members of the Village Society will be on hand to explain the history of the bake house and the various old artifacts that are stored there.
