Allotment in Church Piece
Anyone who is interested in taking on an allotment – just think of fresh vegetables and herbs whenever you need them and of the fulfilment of hard work to achieve them. Please contact Alicia Howard of Great Barn, telephone 208036 for more information.

Pub Lunch at The Bell
The next Pub Lunch is on Wednesday May 25th at 12.30pm. There is now a regular group of about 20 “older” Chearsley people who meet each month for a bargain lunch and a catch up on news.  It has been good to welcome Ann McKay, past Landlady of The Bell to recent lunches. Please do get in touch with either Ann Hooton on 208306 or Alan Mitchener on 208893 if you would like to come along even if you no longer live in Chearsley or would just like to come and join in. Everyone is welcome. Now is the time to book your place and order your meal.
