Little Rose Pub
People who have a ‘local’ pub, like the Little Rose in Haslingfield, are not only significantly happier than those who do not, but also have higher life satisfaction and have more close friends, according to new research from Oxford University.
The report, written by Professor Robin Dunbar for CAMRA (the Campaign for Real Ale) outlines that having a strong social network significantly improves both your happiness and your overall health. The more people you know, and the more often you see them, the better you feel and the healthier you are.
The Haslingfield Allotment Gardeners Association (HAGA) is having a working party this Saturday between 1pm and 3pm. They also have one full size and two half size plots vacant so if you have “green fingers” and want to grow your own produce or just want to know more then please come along. January is the best time to start your growing season.
