Haslingfield Neighbourhood Plan – We’re On Our Way!

Creating a Neighbourhood Plan is a long process – usually 2 years or more. The first step is to collect info – about our homes, our green spaces, our businesses and amenities, and of course about our people! But more important than that, we needed to collect info about what our community wants to protect and improve in our planned environment.

So Haslingfield’s Neighbourhood Plan Steering Committee is delighted that more than 150 residents took the time to fill in our first survey, which closed on 31 December – a fantastic response! Read more

All Saints Church restoration and redecoration January 2024

Thanks to the generous contributions and legacies from villagers and from our congregation, All Saints’ Church is able to start the first phase of high level restoration work in the Nave.

This means that Sunday services will take place in the chancel and sadly the church will not be open to the public from January 8th until Easter. We hope to leave the North porch open for private prayer.

Entrance to the chancel at other times can be prearranged with the vicar or the churchwardens if they are available. Read more
