The collecting box in Chearsley Shop raised £40.38 this year, contributing to a total of £1,041 raised in Chearsley and Cuddington from house to house collections and collecting points, slightly more than last year.

Chearsley Tea Rooms and shop

Credit and Debit cards can now be used here. There is also the facility for you to top up your phone cards and gas and electric keys.

Christmas Table Decoration Workshop

Joy Payne is holding a demonstration and workshop at Chearsley Tea Rooms on Thursday 18th December from 7.30 to 9.30pm. If you are interested in being inspired and helped by Joy to make your own individual Christmas table decoration, call in at the shop for a booking form. Be quick, as places are limited. The cost is £18 for all materials, tea or coffee and light buffet or £20 to include a glass of wine.

Sunshine Club Christmas Bring and Buy

You are invited to come along to Tyringham Hall, Cuddington on Thursday 11th December at 2.30pm. Buy Christmas presents and enjoy a cup of tea. Entry is free. All proceeds go to the Sunshine Club Christmas dinner and party. Several residents from Chearsley enjoy their Mondays at the Sunshine Club, so please come and help support them.
