All Saints’ Nave Roof Repair

You will be pleased to know that the Nave Roof has finally been completed. After a much delayed start, with problems of all descriptions, we now have a beautiful new Cumbrian slate roof. The slates vary in length up the slope and also in width. As the tiler said, ‘It is like playing chess to lay a roof like this’.  But to see the completed roof is to see a work of art, which is a real joy, and of which we can all be very proud. It also means of course that All Saints’ remains open as a place of worship and peace for the whole of the village community for years to come, and we can remain dry while using it!

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.

Bus Service 27

Stagecoach has started a consultation to look at improving the local bus timetables. This mainly affects route 26 from Cambridge to Royston whereby this would stop at Trumpington P&R and would give an hourly service between Cambridge and Royston. The MAIN PROBLEM with this is that they will STOP ROUTE 27 from Guilden Morden to Cambridge which runs through Haslingfield. If you feel that this service 27 through Haslingfield should be maintained then please reply to the consultation here before 19th March 2017, Email: cambridge.enquiries@stagecoachbus.com or write to: Stagecoach, 100 Cowley Road, Cambridge, CB4 0DN !
