Village Green – Grass damage from storage of pipes during the Gas works

The  Parish Council have made a complaint to Cambridge County Council Street Works Team regarding the damage caused to the Village Green grass through weeks of storing large yellow piping during the gas works to Broad Lane are being carried out – the grass is completely dead where the pipes have been stored.

The Street Works Inspector has attended site and confirmed that the works team will make good the Village Green before clearing the site.

Green Bin Collection

The phased starting up of the green waste service began on Monday 4th May. 
Under the phased reintroduction of the green waste service, residents are guaranteed one collection
per month but are encouraged to put the green bins out each time the blue recycle bins are due for
collection, in case crews are able to collect more than the scheduled rounds. Collection days for Haslingfield are 14th May, 10th June & 8th July.
To find out which weeks have a guaranteed collection, residents can check by postcode at:

Water Leak

Anglian Water have just rung to tell me that we have a water leak from between the Village Hall and Porkers Lane. It’s a broken pipe that will take a little while to repair but rest assured it is being dealt with.
