4-11 March: UK Power Networks have advised that they will be undertaking upgrade work on the overhead lines in various locations along the High St / Harston Rd requiring some traffic control measures.
Concerns have been raised locally that the 75 bus service is being withdrawn. Cambs County Council have, however, confirmed that this is incorrect and it is the contract for this service that is expiring. Apparently bus operators have already submitted their applications as part of the re-tendering process and County Councillors are expected to vote on this in March (date tbc). Previous advice was that they expect to maintain services in the short term. The Parish Council has, however, taken this opportunity to write to our assigned County Councillors to both point out the value of this service to its users and seek their reassurance that it will continue.

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.
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.
Please be aware that we will be commencing carriageway resurfacing works at the above location from Monday 29th October for 5 days. The works will take place Monday – Friday during the day from 0730 – 1830.
Apologies for the late notice regarding this, it is a scheme we have brought forward in the programme due to the fact another had to be pushed back to accommodate other works.
