Covid community update – Tier 4 announcement

The Government has announced that Cambridgeshire is moving into Tier 4 restrictions from 12.01am on Saturday 26 December.

I had hoped that the previous update would be the last until the New Year but we wanted to share with you all what this announcement will mean.

Firstly, the change does not affect Christmas Day. People can still choose to mix with two other households. However, as we have stressed before, the fact that people are allowed to do that does not mean you should. Less mixing and shorter celebrations will minimise the risk to loved ones and help ensure Coronavirus is not passed on. Please do share our Facebook posts within your communities to help encourage people to spend their Christmas Day as safely as possible:

Haslingfield Christmas

The members of the Haslingfield webteam wish all our visitors a very merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.

Haslingfield Greenway – Great News!

The Haslingfield Greenway has been given the go-ahead by the Greater Cambridge Partnership with £8M funding. We will have 2 new cycle paths. One running from Cantelupe Road to Grantchester crossing the M11 at the footbridge and joining Grantchester at Burnt Close. It then runs along Grantchester Road to Newnham. The other starts at Porkers Lane and runs along the existing bridleway to Hauxton. Both schemes require considerable work by the GCP team so completion will possibly not be until 2025. You can read full details of the scheme at:

I will be in continuous contact with the GCP team throughout the implementation and will be very happy to pass on comments or suggestions

Update on Full Fibre in Haslingfield

This is to update you on the progress for the Full Fibre Project in Haslingfield to date.
Firstly, thanks for your pre-order and support on the project, it is great that you can all see the benefit in having the next generation of broadband brought to the village.
As it currently stands we are approximately 75% to the target, in the last month there has been 25 pre-orders submitted,  if we keep this rate up we should meet the required threshold for Haslingfield in January/February. We also have a progress update personalised advert going into the village magazines January print, which should help get the project over the line. Read more

High Speed Broadband Update

Over the last two weeks we’ve seen a big increase in the number of pre orders, putting the village within touching distance of the target required to green light the project. 
Although this is great news, we still need as many people as possible to register for the service actually to make it a reality. If you’ve signed up for the service already please spread the word to your neighbours, friends and family. And if you’re interested and haven’t signed up as of yet, please head over to www.countybroadband.co.uk and enter your post code.
