The Haslingfield Hunt (Geocaching)

For those of you that have not tried it there is a fun “geocaching” route called the Haslingfield Hunt. If don’t know what geocaching is follow this link for an explanation. It has been there since 2007, but we successfully completed it a couple of weeks ago. We heard about it from friends and thought it would be an idea to advertise it on the site so more local  people know about it. You need a hand held GPS, a note pad and paper and to be able to walk about a mile or so on good paths. All the stages are quite close to each other so if your calculation takes you a hundred miles away you must have got the numbers wrong! It starts by the village sign and more details can be found here.

Haslingfield Head Teachers, 1875-1975

Below is a list of Head Teachers at the local school between 1875 and 1975.The list is interesting in a number of ways:
*There was a woman head for barely five years of the 100 covered;
*There was clearly a difficulty at the end of the First World War in filling the post. Between Messrs. Royston and Laxton there were ten heads.This must have been something to do with the lack of male recruits into the teaching profession during wartime; *Miss Ling, who is the subject of a dramatic reading at the Village society in February 2012, served under fourteen different heads in her school career, which stretched from 1917 to 1963.
