Have you had a look at Chearsley website lately? It has up to the minute photos and news about the latest events in our village – photos of the cheque presentation of £7077.20 to Florence Nightingale at The Bell on Friday June 20th by Nic Brown on behalf of the organizers of the Race for Life Aftermath. What an an achievement. Congratulations to all involved.
Photos of the Chearsley Tearooms and store grand opening on Saturday June 21st. What a wonderful, happy crowd gathered there, excited to see the new shop and tearooms.
