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)

Weekly Workout

As some of you may know, today’s workout session will be the last. Due to some changes in his work and his personal life it had become harder for Dan to commit to every Wednesday. The session today will run as normal and finish at 7pm. Then, if anyone is free, you are invited to a drink in the Little Rose. They will be walking there from the hall.
