RINGING REMEMBERS

Residents of Haslingfield will be familiar with the Church bells ringing out before services, at weddings, on days of national celebration and on Thursday evenings, when we practice.

On Monday, April 9th at 3pm, a team will ring a full peal to commemorate those from Haslingfield who died in the First World War.  April 9th is the anniversary of the death of Private Edward Newling who was born in the village and who was killed in action when serving in the Suffolk Regiment.  Private Newling has descendants who live in the village today.

CHURCH FETE A WINNER

The annual Church Fete was held this year on Saturday 16th of September and was a great success in spite of the showers and at times, stormy weather.
