Haslingfield Spring Clean – Sun 7th April 2019

For the first time Haslingfield are joining in the Keep Britain Tidy Great Spring Clean initiative.
We need teams of volunteers to help. As well as litter picking, we plan to ‘clean up’ certain areas within the village, e.g. the playground.
Other suggestions for areas that need attention are very welcome. Teams will be provided with gloves, litter-pickers and bin-bags (supplied by SCDC), a few hi-vis waistcoats will also be available.

For more details and to register please email either Jay jaythevamper@btinternet.com or Jenny chairman@haslingfieldparish.co.uk

FAO Haslingfield bus users – the 75 bus service

Concerns have been raised locally that the 75 bus service is being withdrawn. Cambs County Council have, however, confirmed that this is incorrect and it is the contract for this service that is expiring. Apparently bus operators have already submitted their applications as part of the re-tendering process and County Councillors are expected to vote on this in March (date tbc). Previous advice was that they expect to maintain services in the short term. The Parish Council has, however, taken this opportunity to write to our assigned County Councillors to both point out the value of this service to its users and seek their reassurance that it will continue.
