Hatley St George and East Hatley are more properly described as hamlets rather than villages. Although quite a few of us work from home, we are largely a commuting population, albeit with a strong sense of community.
There is another Hatley near by - Cockayne Hatley, which is in Bedfordshire (we're in Cambridgeshire) and historically not connected to 'our' Hatley.
There is more about Hatley St George and East Hatley on the Wikipedia website.
Hatley Quiz – 6th February 2016
Much head-scratching, excitement, disappointment and fun (as always) at the annual, and famous, Hatley Quiz Night in the Village Hall. £345 was raised for the Village Hall funds. (Slightly down on the £375 raised in 2015, and fractionally better than the £344 raised in 2014.)
Our thanks to Pam French and her two colleagues from Gamlingay who did a super job as this year's quiz masters.
▲ Concentration. The quiz masters provided a set of 'table' questions to get everyone in the mood before the quiz proper started. Click on the photos for larger versions.
