Village News

with Margaret Morbey

Chearsley Pub Lunch Club
The Club was one of the first of many to be launched with the support of Community Impact Bucks, a charity which works with Parish Councils and local interest groups. The idea of the Clubs started in Shropshire as a way of helping people maintain a level of social contact in rural areas. The Chearsley Pub Lunch can rightly be called a success as it has now been running smoothly under the management of Ann Hooton for a year. Thanks go to Ann for the work she does. The lunches are a monthly occasion, the next one being on Wednesday June 22nd at 12.30pm in The Bell.

Zumba Fitness latin-inspired, easy to follow and now available in Chearsley on Thursday evenings in the village hall.  Classes start at 8.15 until 9.00 (following the Pilates class). It costs £5.00 per session. Sounds fun. Come and try it.

Chearsley and Long Crendon Conservatives
I understand from Jeremy Quin that a highly successful lunchtime hogroast was held on Saturday 21st May at Hill Farm, Long Crendon, by kind invitation of Mike Hawkett, Long Crendon’s newly-elected District Councillor, when over 70 attended and met friends and neighbours. Michael Edmonds from Chearsley, who was re-elected alongside Mike Hawkett used the occasion to welcome his new council colleague and paid tribute to 8 years of loyal service on the District council by David Smith from Shabbington who retired at the election.

Litter Pick – Sunday June 5th

Please come and help pick up litter in the village lanes by meeting at The Bell on Sunday June 5th at noon. Bags and gloves will be provided. As we have entered the Best Kept Village competition for the first time this year, it needs us all to be especially proud of the appearance of our village and make an effort to keep it tidy.

Mobile Library
This will next be in Chearsley by The Green on Monday June 6th from 12.20 until 12.45pm

Refuse collection
Back to the normal Tuesday collection day on 7th June when it will be bins only.
