Reminder – Phase 3 of the Traffic Calming Scheme

Don’t forget that for your vote to be valid you must complete and return your form to any Parish Councillor or the Clerk by midnight on Tuesday 31st October 2017.
We would encourage every villager on the electoral register to vote, to ensure that the answer we get from the ballot is truly representative of the views of the village. Irrespective of the number of ballot papers received, the answer that receives the most votes will determine whether or not Phase 3 is to be implemented
Remember, in a close contest your vote matters, and if you don’t vote you may end up with something you don’t want. – Jenny Jullien (Chair – HPC)

Autumn Art and Craft Workshop

There are still a couple of places free on Prue van der Hoorn’s popular Art and Craft workshop on 25th October in the Village Hall.

More details when you click the poster.

New Parish Councillors

The Haslingfield Parish Council likes to welcome Ian Johnson and Darren Crowe as new parish councillors. No doubt their input and contributions will be greatly appreciated by all villagers. We also regret that Julie Coxall has resigned from the council for family reasons. Details of all the councillors can be found here.

If you believe you have the time and skills to help the council, you can volunteer to become a councillor. More details are available from Jenny Jullien (Chair)  or Frances Laville (Parish Clerk).

History of Haslingfield Village Hall (part II)

(cont…) The opening day for the new recreation ground was arranged for April 13th, 1925. To commemorate the event, a monument to the patron, Mr. Badcock, was unveiled which can still be seen to the right of the entrance of the village hall.

A wooden pavilion was soon purchased and erected with money from the Badcock Trust. In due course a kitchen and billiard room were added, and many social functions were held to raise money for its upkeep.

After World War II the recreation ground was levelled, a cricket pitch laid, two tennis courts built and a children’s playground with swings et cetera were provided, mainly by volunteer labourers and contributions from the villagers. A series of gymkhanas and other events were held to finance this.

The building remained in use until 1974. (tbc)

By now everyone in the village who is on the electoral register should have received an explanation of Phase 3 together with a ballot paper and a map.
