Reminder – Phase 3 of the Traffic Calming Scheme

Don’t forget that for your vote to be valid you must complete and return your form to any Parish Councillor or the Clerk by midnight on Tuesday 31st October 2017.
We would encourage every villager on the electoral register to vote, to ensure that the answer we get from the ballot is truly representative of the views of the village. Irrespective of the number of ballot papers received, the answer that receives the most votes will determine whether or not Phase 3 is to be implemented
Remember, in a close contest your vote matters, and if you don’t vote you may end up with something you don’t want. – Jenny Jullien (Chair – HPC)

Autumn Art and Craft Workshop

There are still a couple of places free on Prue van der Hoorn’s popular Art and Craft workshop on 25th October in the Village Hall.

New Parish Councillors

The Haslingfield Parish Council likes to welcome Ian Johnson and Darren Crowe as new parish councillors. No doubt their input and contributions will be greatly appreciated by all villagers.

If you believe you have the time and skills to help the council, you can volunteer to become a councillor. More details are available from Jenny Jullien (Chair)  or Frances Laville (Parish Clerk).
