And we do not plan to stop here. We have recently purchased new smart tables for the hall. We plan to fit new upvc security windows to replace the old wooden ones which are in need of replacement. We would like to smarten up the place with new curtains to give a more modern look. These curtains are still from the pre-1991 hall.
We have replaced the front door with a pair of new ones and maintain the borders around the front door. And with funding we would like to modernise the hall and provide more storage for users. We also plan to extend the kitchen area to welcome a new generation of users.
We believe the village hall has been shown to be a real asset to the local community and would like to thank all the people who have helped to raised funds and contribute to make the hall what it is today.
21 April, 2 pm – meet at the Rec (Village Hall car park)
Join fellow villagers of all ages as we walk to the Jubilee Woods and the River Cam (1/2 mile each way). We’ll collect our impressions of spring in the young wood, using words and pictures, and create a community poem to share and possibly “publish” amongst ourselves.

Wicken Fen, Past, Present and Future
Dr Peter Green will give an overview of the creation of the Fen and the various drainage schemes. He will then detail how Wicken was one of the few small areas to escape drainage thanks, in part, to the efforts of scientists from Cambridge. Once the National Trust was formed it bought part of Wicken Fen and was donated much more by these same Cambridge Scientists. The talk will then detail how the National Trust has maintained the Fen and the reasons for, and progress, of the Wicken Fen Vision, a 100 year project to ensure the long term preservation of this extremely important ecosystem.
We are a group of people interested in the environment, wildlife, sustainability and getting families out in nature. We came together after the screening of ‘wetheuncivilised’ in February and are still in the process of talking about what things we’d like to do, but on the table are talks about the Transition movement and sustainable shopping, more film screenings, recycled art projects, a repair café and, on the 21st of April, a families walk to the wild spaces in Haslingfield.
Our next meeting will take place on 10 April at 7.30 in the Little Rose pub lounge bar. If you are interested in any of the things mentioned above, and live in Haslingfield, Harlton, Barrington or Harston, please come along.
The next concert will be on Saturday 24th March 2018 at 7.30pm in All Saints Church, Haslingfield.
