Toddlers enjoy new playground equipment

Earlier in the year the Parish Council received a kind and generous bequest from the estate of Mrs Rita Philippson, a resident of Haslingfield for many years. Her wish was to spend it on something that would benefit the parishioners. Following a poll at the May Parish Council AGM the vote was in favour of providing playground equipment and specifically something for the toddler age group. From speaking with parents and users it was identified this age group had a lack of age appropriate equipment to use without full adult supervision. The new pieces consisting of three climbing boulders and two balance beams were installed in the Playground in early October giving toddlers simple and safe pieces to play on which in turn help them learn to climb and balance on their own.

Temporary Village Hall Access

The construction of the village hall extension has now started and a safety fence is erected around the hall. This means that access to the hall has been changed and access to the hall is now through the side door overlooking the patio area to the north of the hall (not the double doors). 

There will be signs on the fencing around the hall to provide more details as is the attached layout.
