Several trees will be felled next week, between Tuesday 29th September and Thursday 1st October for a variety of reasons; some are dead, some are at risk of losing limbs and some are at risk of falling onto villagers’ property.
A notice has been posted on most of the trees (the ones we could get to) and a note put through the doors of the nearby houses. The trees in question are located in: Read more
Haslingfield Parish Council will be holding a virtual Planning Meeting on Thursday 24 September 2020 at 7pm. Please find more details here.
The PTFA is running a treasure hunt to coincide with Haslingfield Scarecrow Festival. It can be completed at any time over the three days- just download and print the documents on the links below for instructions and answer sheets. There are 2 treasure hunts:
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.
The ADVANCED treasure hunt is aimed at children aged approx. 7 to 11 years, although younger and older may still wish to join in. This will also involve a walk of around 1.25 miles in total. 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.

Are you a new/expectant parent, or parent to a baby, and living in Haslingfield or Harlton? It would be great to make friends and be able to support each other, and especially so in the current situation. We may not be able to meet in person for a little while yet, but we can still do a video cuppa (and cake!) and of course be at the end of the phone. If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, please email Alison for more information: email@example.com.

Haslingfield School PTFA have planned several fun events for the VE Day Bank Holiday weekend (Friday 8th/Saturday 9th/Sunday 10th May). Please note that these events are open to everyone. They are:
Here’s a letter to everyone explaining more: Read more
To all our valued customers, we hope you’re keeping well, staying safe and strong! We’ve compiled a list of goods
we stock in the shop as an aide memoire
to help you when phoning in and emailing orders. We’ve also popped one in the window. It’s not exhaustive, and it doesn’t itemise everything, but we hope it will be of benefit when you compile your shopping list!
Our limit on contactless payments has been increased to £45, as this remains one of the safest means of paying.
We will be closed on Mondays from next week onwards, to give everyone an additional recovery day. Serving from the front door (and over the phone / via emails) is working very well, but it’s definitely harder work, and taking its toll! This is also in line with several of our suppliers, who are closed on Monday. However, we’re fully open from Tuesday – Saturday, and look forward to hearing from you or seeing you! Thank you, as always, for your understanding and support
“We hope you’ve enjoyed a relaxing Easter in the glorious weather, even if it wasn’t the Easter you thought you’d be having. Certainly our Country Kitchen staff feel a bit more rested after the extra day’s break we enjoyed after an incredibly busy Good Friday, when we despatched (among other things) 120 Hot Cross buns!
