Monday 20th May 2019 at 7.30pm – Haslingfield Village Hall
This is your once-a-year chance to come and find out what the Parish Council has been doing in your name and help influence future plans.
We’ve invited our County and District Councillors and all parishioners are warmly invited to attend. We welcome questions and suggestions on any subject relevant to the community.
Topics will include:
- Chair’s Report on activities in 2018/19 and priorities next year
- Moveable Vehicle Activated Sign (MVAS) – results so far
- East West Cambs Rail initiative and its impact for Haslingfield
- Village Hall extension project
- The £2000 bequest of the late Mrs Phillipson to Haslingfield Pavilion Committee
We aim to finish not later than 9:30 pm. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be served during the evening by Little Owls (with voluntary donations to their funds).
Chair – Haslingfield Parish Council
Please find attached the agenda for the Parish Council meeting on Monday 13th May at 7.30pm in the Methodist Church (NB: this is a change in normal venue).
20190513 Agenda HPC Meeting
The roadworks on Chapel Hill have now commenced. The contractor advises that, although the start was delayed, the roadworks should still end on May 17th 2019. Please note that there is also a road closure on Church St, Harston between 7th – 10th of May so both roads will regrettably be closed at the same time. This issue has been escalated to the County Council.
Attached is the agenda for an additional planning meeting on Wednesday 1st May. This notice was put up on the Parish Council notice boards on Thursday 25th April 2019.20190501 Planning Meeting
Please find the minutes of the HVH Committee Meeting from 27th February 2019
More than 20 people turned up on Sunday to tidy and clean the village, with an encouragingly high proportion of children taking part. Areas tackled included: Porkers Lane and River Lane; Harston Road; Wisbeys Yard; The Recreation Ground and Skatepark; Broad Lane to High Street; Wellhouse Meadow; High Street to Church Street and New Road footpath.
Three favourite quotes of the day:
- Passer-by to fellow Parish Councillor – “What did you get your ASBO for?”
- Husband to wife, child and dog when leaving home to help – “ It’s a really worthwhile thing you are doing!!”
- And child to her father – “Can we do this every month?”
A huge thank you to everyone who took part on Sunday and to the many villagers who litter pick on a regular basis when out walking.
