All Saints’ Haslingfield has a fine memorial window to its missionary Bishop, Charles Mackenzie, who prior to his going out to Africa to help combat the slave trade and to help establish the church in what is now Malawi, walked out from Cambridge to Haslingfield on Sundays to help with services in the church. The full story of his life can be found in the display inside the church, but there is now a link between Haslingfield and Magomero, the place where he established a base in 1861. The Church in Haslingfield together with other parishes in the Mare Way Group has helped with renovation of the school buildings, and most recently with materials for the construction of a church building, which is nearly complete.

Haslingfield is fortunate in being only 20 minutes from one of the country’s premier gliding clubs, and we have several village residents who are club members.
Gliding is a form of flight that is both beautiful and exciting. Nothing can quite match the thrill of flying silently, giving a birds-eye view over the surrounding countryside of Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and beyond. Gliders from Gransden Lodge Airfield often fly two or three hundred miles on a good day.
There will be no film club in May 2013 because of other commitments, but I can thoroughly recommend the Haslingfield Little Theatre production on Thursday 16th, Friday 17th and Saturday 18th of May. The evening will consist of two very amusing plays and there will be the usual refreshment bar. Tickets at the village shop – don’t leave it too late to buy!
Far Away Places.
