Village News

with Margaret Morbey

Harvest Supper  -Saturday September  25th
A good crowd of about 50 villagers enjoyed a supper of homemade salads  with  cooked meats from our local butcher of the next village, followed by pudding, tea and coffee, at the second of Chearsley Harvest Suppers, organized by Alicia Howard.   The raffle of hamper of vegetables grown on Chearsley allotments raised about £150  which will go towards The Jenny and Jessey School in Uganda.  Entertainment was provided by Jeremy and Ann Pratt, Fenella Tillier and Pat Miles, who all braved the stage to delight us.  Hearty singing was led by our Vicar, John Wyndburne and his guitar.

Pumpkin Night  - Thursday October 28th
Hopefully other pumpkins being grown for the Pumpkin Night at The Bell are considerably bigger than the one Podge and myself are growing! However, we are setting our sights on the prize for the smallest!  Make a note in your diary to come along with or without pumpkins and join in this Village occasion.
