A Community Governance Review for the Parish of Haslingfield

SCDC

SCDC

The South Cambridgeshire District Council is undertaking a community governance review of the parish of Haslingfield because the new housing development at Trumpington Meadows will alter the geographical spread of housing across the parish. The resulting spatial separation between the two population centres will no longer correspond to a parish boundary that reflects a natural settlement pattern. Furthermore, the two populations may not share a common identity or interests. So Have your say in the Haslingfield Parish community governance review.

Haslingfield Art and Craft Workshop

From September, Haslingfield children’s art workshop is changing. I have been running the regular art workshop on a Thursday after school for eight years and now feel it is time for a change. In that time many children have made some wonderful crafts and I have really enjoyed being part of their creativity. Please have a look at the Haslingfield Art and Craft website to view their work. http://prue20.wix.com/artworkshop. I will still be organising workshops in the school holidays throughout the year so I will not be finishing completely. Meanwhile Christine Le Grand will be taking over the Thursday after school art club which will now be based in Haslingfield Primary school for key stage 2. You can contact Christine via artexplorerscambridge@gmail.com or Haslingfield Primary School for more information. Prue van der Hoorn
