Flowers in Chearsley Church
We are being invited to sponsor the flowers for one Sunday in St Nicholas Church as a way of marking a particular occasion or date special to us and as a way of supporting and being part of our charming Church. It can be to mark any special occasion, or just as a gift to the church, in memory of a loved one who has died, on the anniversary of a death, to celebrate the birth of a child, a wedding anniversary, a special birthday or as a token of thanksgiving to God for a particular blessing. Please contact Joy Payne at 1 Bernards Close Chearsley. Telephone Number 208513, or email for more information.

Baskets for paper, cans and plastics will next be collected on February 22nd.

Pub Lunch
Have you booked your place and ordered your meal for the next Pub Meal at The Bell on Wednesday 23rd February? If not, please contact Ann Hooton on 208306.

W.I. French Evening
A successful French evening was held on January 29th in the Village Hall when 64 guests enjoyed a French meal, par excellence, cooked by the ladies of Chearsley W.I. Great amusement and fun was provided by very local entertainers, involving can-can dancing dolls, poetry reading and singing. The W.I. would like to thank everyone who participated and helped.

Bridge Club

Aylesbury Aces Bridge Club is a small friendly, relatively new club and would like to hear from anyone who may be new to the area and would like to take up bridge again. The Club meets at Sivatech Training Centre at Gatehouse Close, Aylesbury on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Players of all abilities are welcome and as a host system is played, everyone is assured of a game whether or not accompanied by a partner. Please phone Gill on 07725 338967, email Gloria at or visit their website at
