Annual Parish Council Meeting
This will take place on Monday April 20th in the Village Hall. There will be posters on the notice board with more information, including the time the meeting starts. If you are interested in what your Parish Council is doing for your Village,and what is proposed for the future, then come along and find out.

Florence Nightingale Hospice
A cheque for £7,000 was handed over to a Florence Nightingale representative in The Bell on Friday 27th March. This was made up by the sale of Chearsley Uncovered Calendars which raised over £5,600, the proceeds of a collecting bottle on the bar of The Bell amounting to about £1,100, and a very generous donation from a Chearsley lady for the balance. A very creditable achievement by everyone concerned.

Chearsley Tea Rooms
A summertime menu is now being offered at our own Tea Rooms. Come and try it out, sit outside and watch the bustle of Chearsley. The shop and tearooms are also open for longer hours at the weekend . Saturday 8 until 3pm and Sunday 9 until 3 pm.

St George’s Day, April 23rd
The Bell is celebrating St. George’s Day on Thursday 23rd April, when a traditional English evening meal is on the menu. Places must be booked.

Pumpkin Competition
Pumpkin seeds can now be bought from The Bell - 5 seeds for £1.00 - to enable you to enter this prestigious competition for judging in October.
