As part of the city-wide Films for Our Future Festival, Pivotal, an arts organisation for sustainability, is screening this beautiful documentary about a young couple on a quest throughout Britain for a more satisfying and sustainable way of living. Discouraged by their urban lifestyles, Lily and Pete set out to discover other ways of living in the modern world. Their journey didn’t provide them with easy answers, but it did inspire them and introduce them to some of the new ways of thinking that may just change the way we all live and help to protect the planet.

Charity Fair – November 2017

The Charity Fair, organised by Haslingfield Methodist Church, was as popular as ever and the church was packed with people buying from the stalls of the 17 charities and then enjoying delicious home-made refreshments. As well as being a collecting point for shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child, there was also an area where people were able to leave items for the Cambridge Foodbank.

An amazing £2,797.50 was raised at the Fair and we would like to thank everyone for their support for these worthy charities.
