Going to the Little Rose Pub is Good for your Wellbeing

Little Rose Pub

Little Rose Pub

People who have a ‘local’ pub, like the Little Rose in Haslingfield, are not only significantly happier than those who do not, but also have higher life satisfaction and have more close friends, according to new research from Oxford University.

The report[1], written by Professor Robin Dunbar for CAMRA (the Campaign for Real Ale) outlines that having a strong social network significantly improves both your happiness and your overall health. The more people you know, and the more often you see them, the better you feel and the healthier you are.

Sustainable Parish Energy Partnership

On the Haslingfield Village Facebook Page, Tom Clarke posted information about Sustainable Parish Energy Partnership (SPEP). It’s a group, supported by the district council, of volunteers across the villages of South Cambs running Sustainability/ Green/ Environmental projects and events. In Haslingfield there has been a village Energy day a couple of years ago and a Thermal Imaging camera project.

If you’re interested in sustainability/ Green/ Environmental projects or events across the region or want to be part of the discussion in organising them or generating ideas you may want to head across to the new Facebook group. Maybe you have a great project idea or are just willing to join a group of like minded people!
