About Hatley

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.


St Denis' churchyard tidy up – 16 July 2017

Rakes and the 'St Denis mower' were to the fore to cut the long grass in the churchyard and tidy it away.  The hard workers took a short break for refreshments (thanks for supplying them, Nicola) and this photo:

Hatley Fête – 9 July 2017

The sun shone and lots of people came along to enjoy the fun, the games, the raffle, the tea tent, the cakes, the cars, the tractors, the stalls, the chance to gossip – and being in Hatley.

The event raised £1,144, split evenly between the Village Hall and Hatley St George church.

Our thanks to Alan and Pauline Pinney who as chief organisers, made the Fête happen.  To Sarah Titmus for organising so many things.

And to all these people without whom the event would not have been as lively and successful as it was:

Chris and Sarah Ball Sarah Brennan
Joyce Denby Laurence Drake
Duncan and Ricky Gillett Hatley Parish Council
Hatley Park Estate Penny Hewlett
Ann Hooley Linda Hudson
Mervyn Lack Paul Kraus
Peter Mann Mick and Sylvia Marshall
John O'Sullivan Pam Offord
The stall holders Becky White
Kim Wilde  

And not forgetting The Clerk of the Weather for making it a fine day, James, Mark, Willie and Jason for all their practical help and anyone not listed (sorry!) who also contributed their time and skills.  Thank you.

▲  End of the day – not surprisingly, Pam Offord, Penny Hewlett. and Becky White, who did a fantastic job manning the tea tent, were feeling a bit tired when doing the washing up and clearing away.
