Welcome to December edition of Hagley Village News.

Can you believe that it's now officially December and Christmas time. On behalf of the Hagley Community Association, I would like to wish all of our villagers a Merry Christmas. It's time to eat great food, dive into traditions and spend time with loved ones. In the village news we love to bring new and talented individuals into the magazine. The front cover this month is from the wonderfully talented Dan Hughes who is from Hagley, but is now currently studying in America. You can follow his photos on Instagram: @Dannyh95. We also have a talented writer, Ellie Maher who has done our review page this month. Ellie is a student at Haybridge High School.

A fantastic well done to Hagley Scout group who put on another great bonfire night, they all did a fantastic job.


The World's tallest cut Christmas tree was a 67.36m Douglas Fir tree, which was assembled decorated at Northgate shopping centre, Seattle, USA in December 1950.

DogA gentle reminder to dog owners, who use the park space to exercise their dogs, please be mindful of cleaning up after your four-legged friends. The playgroup use the area at the rear of the Community Centre for outdoor play on a daily basis, sometimes they are prevented from doing so, as when they carry out daily checks, there has been evidence of owners not cleaning up. Unfortunately this does prevent the children from enjoying the outside space. Please be mindful.
