Chearsley Stones Restored!

From our own correspondent.
Saturday June 17th marks the dawn of a new era as the Stones of Chearsley, until recently lying undiscovered in one of Ted's barns, are moved to The Green in preparation for the Chearsley Carnival - Saturday June 24th.

A team of youthful locals resisted all temptations offered by the local hostelry and manhandled these monoliths with the precision and workmanship that has become a byword in the village. Indeed, as the pictures show, most wore the traditional shorts and short sleeves for what may well have been the first day of summer.

June 19th: Phil Holland has electrified some of the trees enabling 'Night-time Illumination'. Unfortunately, a shortness in cable necessitated use of the nearest socket and we are therefore all grateful to Sue of The Bell for foregoing the use of her hair-dryer for the next week.
