Bus Service 27

Stagecoach has started a consultation to look at improving the local bus timetables. This mainly affects route 26 from Cambridge to Royston whereby this would stop at Trumpington P&R and would give an hourly service between Cambridge and Royston. The MAIN PROBLEM with this is that they will STOP ROUTE 27 from Guilden Morden to Cambridge which runs through Haslingfield. If you feel that this service 27 through Haslingfield should be maintained then please reply to the consultation here before 19th March 2017, Email: cambridge.enquiries@stagecoachbus.com or write to: Stagecoach, 100 Cowley Road, Cambridge, CB4 0DN !

Jo Fullick has been doing sterling work on the ivy almost daily, but it is a long wall with still some more careful cutting to do.  This Sunday we have 5 new trees to plant in the community orchard – 4 fruit trees and a small oak.
Also to complete putting grass suppressing polythene around all the trees – this needs to be tucked down into grooves to prevent it flying away. Read more
