This event gets better every year with 19 different charities taking part. There will be lots of different things to buy – Christmas cards, Christmas puddings, books, homemade food etc. You can also help to make a quilt that will be sent to a sick baby in Addenbrookes Hospital AND you might win a big one in the raffle! As well as all the stalls, there will be a café serving delicious homemade food and light lunches.
Children, don’t forget to take your Christmas letters along to the Fair . You can post them in a special postbox, and Action for Children will send them to Father Christmas. He has promised to send you a reply!” Read more
ALL SAINTS’ CHURCH HASLINGFIELD
All of the Victorian Pews in Haslingfield Church are now for Sale. We have been advised by Auctioneers that the estimate the value of the pews is between £50 and £100. Sealed Bids are invited, which will be opened on 17th October 2015 for Haslingfield Village and Surrounding Area, following which bidding will be opened up to all. At each stage the Highest Bids for a particular pew will be considered first and then the remaining pews will be offered to Bidders to choose from in the order of the size of their bid. Click the Pic to see a description of the pews for sale. (The older ‘medieval’ pews are to be retained) Read more

All Saints’ are delighted to announce that we will soon be installing new comfortable and warm chairs in the Nave of the church to replace all our Victorian pews. The 21 medieval pews, 3 ceremonial medieval chairs and 9 Victorian children’s pews that are in the church will be retained. Ten of the longest pews will be lovingly shortened and restored to match the short ones already in the aisles. Read more
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.
