Halloween is eCops logoon  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.
Remember…
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!

A Community Governance Review for the Parish of Haslingfield

SCDC

SCDC

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.
