Speedwatch Volunteers Needed

TrafficThe Cambridgeshire County Police have revamped the Community Speedwatch Scheme. Teams of Speedwatch Volunteers are now operating in most of the surrounding villages. Why not here in Haslingfield? The Police will provide training for the team and we can share equipment with neighbouring Parishes. More details here…

Parish Council Members

Only six nominations were submitted for Parish Councillors in Haslingfield for the elections scheduled for 5th May 2016. Thus all those nominated were declared elected unopposed and will assume their duties from 9th May 2016.

Selection will be by an initial screening and then by interview by the council of screened volunteers before deciding on any co-option and the council reserves the right not to co-opt any or all applicants. If you are interested then please contact the Parish Clerk, Frances Laville on 01223 264360, send her an email: haslingfieldparishclerk@gmail.com or drop her a line: 32 High Street, Great Eversden, Cambs CB23 1HW.

Defibrillators can save lives 

AEDsign-250x302Every year around 60,000 people have cardiac arrests outside of hospitals, but only a few casualties survive.
CPR and early defibrillation within the first three minutes can give up to a 70%** chance of survival.

Find out how to use a defibrillator by watching our short video. There is no reason not to use one!!
The Haslingfield defibrillator is in the old BT phone box on the High Street (opposite Lilac Close).

BikeBus Explorer service to end in March

dews_coachesThe BikeBus Explorer’s last day of service will be Sunday 27 March.
The service launched in July 2014 for a pilot period of just under one year with funding from Cambridgeshire County Council and a grant from The National Trust.
The pilot was extended up until the end of March this year. Unfortunately the passenger numbers have not grown enough and the service is not able to cover its costs. For more details on the service please click here.

Textile Bank at Porkers Lane

South Cambridgeshire District Council provides a network of textile and book recycling banks across the District. The contractor delivering this service notified the council late last week that they will begin removing all banks during week commencing 15 February and 22 February.
This extreme lack of notice has not allowed an alternative arrangement to be put in place and regrettably there will be a period where recycling bring facilities will not be available. For more details, click Read more
