Village News

with Margaret Morbey

Epilepsy Action
Debbie Corpe and her mother, Joc, held a very successful fund raising event on Friday 23rd October, as part of the National Tea Break for Epilepsy action. There was an array of plants, gifts, cakes for sale and together with the raffle, the amount of £511 was raised. This was quite a bit more than was raised last year. Well done to Debbie and Joc and everyone who supported this good cause.

Birthday Congratulations
Ian Perkins, although a Nether Winchendon resident, known to many in Chearsley, recently celebrated a landmark birthday in phenomenal style. An amazing display of fireworks. Congratulations Ian.

Lower Green Lane
Work to resurface the cul-de-sac in Lower Green Lane starts on Monday 2nd November. The work should take about a week. Efforts will be made to keep any disruption to traffic in the lane to a minimum, but inevitably there will be times when lorries block the road.

Service 261 is being replaced by 110 which will continue to run every 2 hours from Aylesbury to Thame, but will no longer serve Haddenham. Some times have changed, so beware.
