Hare and Hounds – Pop Up Pub

For all Haslingfield residents who are interested in the Hare and Hounds Community Pub proposal, the steering committee is organising a “POP UP PUB” event. They would love you to join them on:

Friday 20th January in the Harlton Village Hall. Doors open at 6.00 pm until 11.00 pm.

You will be able to purchase beer, wine, spirits and soft drinks including a real treat with a barrel of Golden Shower (4.1%) from local brewery Son of Sid Brewery in Little Gransden. Food at the pop-up pub this Friday is from local restaurant La Pergola and is lasagne, gnocchi and salad. Hear the latest progress on the bid to buy the Hare and Hounds pub. Let’s all join in and make this a fabulous evening!

Community Bid to Buy the Hare and Hounds update

As you may be aware, the Hare and Hounds in our neighbouring village of Harlton closed at the end of October. There is a community effort underway to buy and reopen it. To find out more, please log on to www.helpthehareandhounds.org.
They are almost there but need to raise a little bit more so if you are interested in buying shares in the pub then please pledge by contacting John Watson. Details on how to do this are here: H&H January letter-signed pdf.

Would You Like to Sponsor the Church Floodlighting?

When the floodlighting of All Saints’ Church was installed in 2003 a sponsorship scheme was set up to ensure that funds would always be available for maintenance and the cost of electricity.  The scheme offers a rather nice way of marking special occasions and remembering loved ones, with a ‘certificate’ carrying appropriate wording posted on a notice board in the church porch.  By the end of 2016 the scheme will have raised more than £4600 from over 300 donations, but  the number of sponsors has reduced over the years and we now need to introduce the idea to more people.  
For further information, or to ask for a form on which to record your message, please contact:
