We are a group of people interested in the environment, wildlife, sustainability and getting families out in nature. We came together after the screening of ‘wetheuncivilised’ in February and are still in the process of talking about what things we’d like to do, but on the table are talks about the Transition movement and sustainable shopping, more film screenings, recycled art projects, a repair café and, on the 21st of April, a families walk to the wild spaces in Haslingfield.
Our next meeting will take place on 10 April at 7.30 in the Little Rose pub lounge bar. If you are interested in any of the things mentioned above, and live in Haslingfield, Harlton, Barrington or Harston, please come along.

A massive “Thank you” to everyone who supported the Foodbank in 2017, and especially those who brought so many wonderful Christmas treats along to the Charity Fair and the Village Shop.
As the gap between the “haves” and the “have nots” has increased and the need for Foodbanks is as important as ever, there will continue to be collection points at the Village Shop (where we really appreciate their support) and the Methodist Church this year. Read more
