Haslingfield Parish Clerks

We are sorry to announce that Vicky Crowden has tendered her resignation and will be leaving us at the end of September. We have enjoyed enormously working with Vicky, but her need to spend more time with family has, and rightly so, taken precedence.
We have been very fortunate to recruit Jacqui Cressey who was one of the applicants for the post of Assistant to the Parish Clerk. Jacqui lives in the village and has done so for the last twelve years.
Our best wishes go to both Vicky and Jacqui.

FAO Haslingfield bus users – the 75 bus service

Concerns have been raised locally that the 75 bus service is being withdrawn. Cambs County Council have, however, confirmed that this is incorrect and it is the contract for this service that is expiring. Apparently bus operators have already submitted their applications as part of the re-tendering process and County Councillors are expected to vote on this in March (date tbc). Previous advice was that they expect to maintain services in the short term. The Parish Council has, however, taken this opportunity to write to our assigned County Councillors to both point out the value of this service to its users and seek their reassurance that it will continue.
