OASIS, the holiday at home for seniors, met again on 28, 29 and 30 July. About 50 people came this year and it was great fun. We had feature talks and quizzes, and each day ended with a tasty lunch. Activities included solving mysteries a la Sherlock Holmes, singing, painting, craft making (some fine wooden boxes), poetry, meditating, chairobics, enjoying the Sayers’ model railway in their back garden – and a highlight: baking scones in the Wellhouse Meadow Bakery.

For the sixth year running, the sponsored walk ‘In the Steps of the Bishop’ will be taking place on Saturday 20 September. We start off from the Chapel of Gonville & Caius College in Cambridge at 10.30 am and finish in Haslingfield Church at around 1 pm where refreshments will be available for tired and thirsty walkers. The walk is undertaken to commemorate the regular walk along the same route taken by Bishop Charles Mackenzie to help with services in Haslingfield. He later went to Africa in the steps of David Livingstone and founded the Christian church in what is now Malawi. All Saints Church and Haslingfield School continue to raise much needed funds for the school and church in the village of Magomero. Go to ‘READ MORE’
