Post Valentine Treat at Haslingfield Village Hall….

Have you ever wondered where that stranger sitting opposite you on the train is going? Imagined the story of their life and future? Or experienced moments of excitement and eager anticipation for what your own future may bring?  Musical theatre has a spectacular catalogue of songs that capture those moments where characters take a step out from the crowd, follow their dreams and suddenly have their voices heard.

Donations – Cambridge City Foodbank

Donations for the Foodbank should be left at the Village Shop, Methodist Church or All Saints’ Church by Sunday 9th December, so that they can be distributed before Christmas. A big “Thank You” to everyone who regularly contributes to this charity. Your help makes a big difference to many people’s lives. Click here for the latest shopping list.

Charity Fair

A great opportunity for you to do some of your Christmas shopping, and have your lunch, in a relaxed atmosphere.
This year we have 15 different charities with a variety of different items, so there should be something for everyone. It’s also an opportunity to remember those who are struggling this year, by bringing along an item for the Cambridge Foodbank.
Lots of people have been crocheting and knitting poppies in remembrance of those who died in the Great War and there will be a quiet area where they will be displayed.
We hope to see you there.

2018 Festival Scarecrows

Many thanks to the team who organised this year’s Festival which, combined with the Parish Church Fete, was a great success.  As always the high-light was the scarecrow trail, which turned up some amazing creativity among Haslingfolk.  To see lots of photos, including the the prize winners, follow this link and see the gallery.

Can you drive? Would you like to help local people?

Why not become a volunteer driver with the Haslingfield and Harlton Community Car Scheme.

The scheme helps people who don’t have access to a car to get to medical appointments and other essential visits. As a volunteer driver you are completely in control of how much – or how little – driving you do. You provide details of your general availability to the Scheme Coordinator (Lawrence Hopkins), and when the Coordinator contacts you by phone or e-mail to ask if you can do a particular drive, you can say Yes or No – no pressure is applied!
