Charity Fair

A great opportunity for you to do some of your Christmas shopping, and have your lunch, in a relaxed atmosphere.
This year we have 15 different charities with a variety of different items, so there should be something for everyone. It’s also an opportunity to remember those who are struggling this year, by bringing along an item for the Cambridge Foodbank.
Lots of people have been crocheting and knitting poppies in remembrance of those who died in the Great War and there will be a quiet area where they will be displayed.
We hope to see you there.

Next Village Society Talk

My Life Behind Bars”

The Queen’s Head in Newton is one of only a handful of pubs to have appeared in every edition of the Good Beer Guide. The list of landlords since 1729 has just 18 entries with the names displayed on the wall in the simply furnished but timeless public bar. David Short, a man of many talents and an interesting speaker, will be talking about his experiences of running his pub, The Queen’s Head, for over 53 years. He will also present a short history of the development of the beer trade in England from before Roman times.  Tuesday 13th November 2018, 8.00pm, Haslingfield Village Hall.
Cheers! Everyone welcome, hope to see you there.
