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.

Happy Monday all.  It seems Winter is going to come early and hit us by this weekend.  Food van alert: There WILL NOT BE ANY FOOD VANS this week at the Haslingfield Village Hall.  (This is due to a sold out theatre/pantomime event at the Village Hall.)  Fear not, however – there are tasty and heart warming curries available from Pop and Bharti for dine-in (at the Mohak Cafe) or take away (from the village shop).  More details on what curries this week will come.  And speaking of dine in options, there’s the Little Rose pub or the Harlton Hare n Hounds pub and La Pergola also if you’ve not tried before.

Village Christmas Tree sponsorship

Following the success of the Christmas Tree on the Village Green last year, the Parish Council have decided to continue with this tradition each year by purchasing the tree and using the lights you generously sponsored last year.  The purchase of the tree and the provision of the electric power to the lights is quite costly, so we are giving the villagers a chance to sponsor the tree again this year.  To save the fees of crowdfunding, sponsorship should be sent directly to the Parish Council bank account via bank transfer, or cash or a cheque can be accepted.   Please contact the Parish Clerk on or 01223 870269 for details.
