Halloween is on Monday the 31st October, however some of you may be having Halloween parties over the weekend.
We encourage responsible behaviour so please be mindful of where your children trick or treat; and always ensure they remain safe.
Stay with an adult at all times while trick or treating
Visit neighbours and people that you know
Look out for pumpkins – houses that welcome trick or treaters usually have pumpkins on display
Some people do not enjoy being scared by spooky costumes. If you see a “no trick or treat” sign respect it and move on to the next house.
Most importantly… stay safe and have fun!

To find out more, please log on to www.helpthehareandhounds.org, or alternatively please contact the Steering Group at firstname.lastname@example.org
STOP PRESS: There is a meeting on 20th October at 7.30pm, at the Village Hall, Harlton where there will be a chance to hear about what’s been happening and to share your thoughts and ideas on this community effort to purchase the Hare and Hounds. Everyone welcome!
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. So Have your say or comment in the Haslingfield Parish community governance review. Consultation will close on 14th November.
Thank you to all who supported our recent cream teas in The Dovecote orchard at Haslingfield. The final total was a wonderful £747, for Parkinson’s UK research fund and the Cambridge Branch of Parkinson’s UK to help with the funding for the support and therapy groups and for the Parkinson’s nurses both in the community and at Addenbrookes Hospital. We hope you enjoyed your afternoon. Chris and Pam Holt
