Big “Thank You” to Marjorie, Janet and Liz for organising another successful, and enjoyable “Tea at the Ritz”. With their team of efficient and polite waitresses and those working hard behind the scenes, they managed to pull off another memorable afternoon while raising money for village organisations.
is the subject of what promises to be an interesting talk by local historian Peter Ibbett on Tuesday, 15 March in Haslingfield Village Centre at 8:00 pm.

Everyone receives a welcome at our meetings and events. Members and school age free. Small charge for non-members, tea & coffee included.
See you there.

At 8 o’clock on Tuesday 15th February in the Village Hall Twigs Way, professional garden historian, author and broadcaster on radio and television, will talk on the History of the Cottage Garden. Everyone is welcome at Village Society meetings, a small charge being made for adult non members – children free.
In a 1907 inspection report, Haslingfield School was described as having an “ample garden area”. Only boys did Gardening, and there was a strong emphasis on neatness and accuracy – “measuring the distance between rows of vegetables” and “trimming the edges of plots”. Apparently there was much student interest, and early attempts at an integrated curriculum, with gardening “widely made the basis of various exercises in Arithmetic and Composition”. Read more
On 20 & 21 May, Haslingfield Little Theatre will be performing their Spring Production: Two Coarse Plays with a Two Course Meal. The two hilarious plays are:
Trapped, which is based on a country house thriller
Pride at Southanger Park, a romance set in Regency times
And, of course, in true coarse acting spirit, everything that can go wrong does go wrong within both plays!
Tickets are now on sale at Haslingfield Village Shop and the Little Rose pub. They cost £12, and include a two-course meal. The audience will be grouped around tables of 8 people, so you can either buy tickets for yourselves, or why not gather together some friends and book a whole table for what promises to be a very entertaining evening!

Maybe you are involved in the event, or you’ve seen it on a poster or in Church and Village and would like people to know about it. Here’s what you do. Read more
