The village hall is now open again after the extension to the hall has been completed. This means the kitchen has been enlarged and now benefits from a dishwasher, 6 ring cooker with extraction hood, large fridge and a lot more storage.
We have also added a new meeting room upstairs with tea and coffee making facilities. This will seat 20 people with ease and allow meeting and presentations to be made by clubs and companies alike at very competitive rates. Hall user have always complained about the lack of storage facilities for equipment left between sessions so we also added a new storage room with shelving.
More details on hire rates and the hall are here: https://haslingfieldvillage.co.uk/village-hall/

The JUNIOR treasure hunt follows a circular route around the village (approx 1.25 miles) and is aimed at children aged approx 3 to 6 years. Instructions and answer sheets here.

Although we are not charging an entry fee for the treasure hunt, the PTFA does rely upon people’s generosity to raise funds to benefit our village school. If you are able to make a contribution, it would be greatly appreciated. There is a fundraising page set up for the treasure hunt on our Golden Giving site. Please go to www.goldengiving.com/fundraising/haslingfieldtreasurehunt
Thank you, and have a great time.
Harston Food Hub have kindly said they can share the scheme they have worked hard to put in place with us, as we are evolving the Haslingfield food cupboard. The cupboard scheme can no longer keep up with the increased demand.
This opportunity will also allow us to also provide fresh food to those in need as well as opening fresh food up to anyone regardless of need to reduce excess food waste that is an alarming issue. This may be from supermarkets with an overstock or anyone who’s garden/ tress etc are producing more than needed.
Here’s a great photo of Haslingfield from the air, taken by Laurence Haslop of Cambridge Drones.
