Environment Working Party, April 2nd

This band of positive villagers has continued to work on the Well-house Meadow. We have secured all 20 fruit trees with rabbit guards, stakes and membranes to prevent weeds. In the autumn we hope to have a permanent sign made so that villagers can identify all the trees, and maybe a new seat.  Meanwhile we have spent 4 sessions cutting the ivy on the Tudor wall, and you can now see our beautiful and historic wall in all its glory.

Next Environment Working Party

Sunday the 12th March is our next environment working Party.  I will be there from 1.30.
Last time we dug in 4 new fruit trees and completed putting in stakes and weed suppressant mats around the trees.  Yesterday they were all looking good.  I hope to see as many of you as can make it on Sunday; we aim to complete the careful removal of Ivy from the Tudor wall so that we can move on to other sites in the village.

Volunteers Cordially Invited

This Sunday (12th) we are going out again from 1.30, meeting at the Wellhouse gate with work to complete.
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

New Parish Councillors

I am delighted to inform you that we have been successful in attracting three new Parish Councillors: Peter Agar from New Road, Clive Blower from Trinity Close, Tricia Knibbs from the High Street. We welcome them all to the team and are confident that they will all make a valuable contribution to the village.

We still do need more applicants, so if you are thinking about it, but not sure whether to apply or not, why not come along to the meetings to find out how we spend the second Monday evening of each month. The areas we still need help with are: Read more

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. Furthermore, the two populations may not share a common identity or interests. So Have your say in the Haslingfield Parish community governance review.
