M11 junctions 10-13 closure

National Highways will be carrying out essential drainage replacement work on the M11 between junctions 10 and 13.  Once complete, the road will be able to better disperse surface water and will be less prone to flooding.  They plan to complete this work over 4 weeks from Wednesday 12 January to Tuesday 8 February, weather conditions permitting.  For a map of the diversions, please click here.

Closures and diversions

To carry out this work safely, they will close the M11 between junctions 10 and 13 in four phases, and divert drivers via a well signed diversion route as set out in the table below: Read more

It is the last week before Christmas and also the last week of food van service at the Haslingfield village hall for 2021.  Many thanks to all the food vans that have filled bellies and put smiles on the faces of the Haslingfield, Harlton and surrounding villages in 2021!  Thank you to the many locals who have visited and enjoyed the food van services.  You’ve made it worthwhile for the vans to continue to visit us.  We look forward to more in 2022!  At the Haslingfield village hall this week (5-8pm):  Thursday (16/12): Kerief Katering.  Caribbean fusion inspirations.  Pre-order or walkups.  Friday (17/12): La Biga. Pizza delight!  Pre-order or walkups.  Saturday (18/12): Apple & Jalapeño with their winter warming cajun-creole menu!  Pre-order or walkups.

Green bin collection

South Cambridgeshire District Council has informed us that green bin collections are being suspended from Monday (13 December) because of the number of drivers and loaders absent – particularly with Coronavirus or self-isolating.  Key points to note are:

  • Green bin collections are planned to resume on Wednesday 12 January 2022 in line with the previously published Christmas schedule.
  • Crews are working hard to complete green bin rounds that are scheduled for the rest of this week. The message for the rest of this week is to put your green bin out as normal. If it is not collected on your usual collection day, leave it out, and it will be emptied by the afternoon of Tuesday 14 December.
