Village News

with Margaret Morbey

Best Wishes
Best wishes for a full recovery go to Janine Rees of Chearsley Tea Rooms and Neville Dean of Old Plough Close after their recent hospital treatments.

Wedding Congratulations
Julie-Ann McKay, daughter of Anne and the late Danny McKay who were landlords of The Bell in Chearsley from 1974 until 1992 married Bruce Johnson on Saturday 27th June at Notley Tythe Barn. Although Julie no longer lives in Chearsley, she has kept close ties with many friends, including Eric Carte (our esteemed actor) who gave her away, and many others attended the evening reception.

Birthday Congratulations
Emily Howard was 18 on June 26th. Congratulations to her, a Chearsley girl, being brought home by Alicia and John on Fete Day in 1991.

Baptisms at St. Nicholas Church
Recent baptisms in the Church have included Thomas De Glanville, son of Tim and Lindsay of Watts Green.

Chearsley Cricket Club
The club ran a major fundraising event “Midsummer Madness” at the Village Hall on Saturday 27th June. The evening included a Hog Roast, serving of traditional ales and dancing to “Hair of the Dog”, a local band. Around 150 attended and, despite the rains arriving later in the evening, it was a huge success. Around £750 was raised for the development of Junior cricket in Chearsley and more events are planned for the future.
