Village News

with Margaret Morbey

Thank you to everyone who has been in touch since the birth of our grandson, Jamie Leo with their good wishes which we have passed on to Jenny and Joe. Fear not, I do not intend to give a weekly bulletin on his progress - just be warned if you stop to talk to me in the village as I now carry a photo album in my handbag!

Chearsley Show – deadline for entries
A last reminder that all entries must be in by Tuesday 30th August. So please return your forms to Rosemary Wallis at Merrifield, Dark Lane, or to Joy Payne at 1 Bernard's Close, or to Anne Lewis at Orchard House, Bottom Orchard, Church Lane, together with the fee of 20p per entry. Numbers of competitors have been increasing each year, so please try to put in as many entries as possible, to continue this trend.

Pub Lunch Wednesday 31st August
This will be held at The Bell on 31st August at 12.30pm. If you plan to come and have not let Ann Hooton know your menu choice, please get in touch with her by Sunday 28th August. If you have not yet joined this happy gathering of older Chearsley residents and friends which meets every month, perhaps you could be tempted by the menu. There is a choice of ham salad and chips; fish pie and vegetables or macaroni cheese and chips. Pudding is lemon tart, fruit crumble or ice cream. This is followed by tea or coffee for a good value price of £5.95. If you are considering giving it a try, please phone Ann on 208306.

Alzheimer's Society Roadshow at Tesco
There will be an Alzheimer’s Society mobile roadshow at Tesco, Broadfields on Thursday 25th and Friday 26th August which will be promoting awareness of Alzheimer's and providing information and support for those with questions and concerns. For further information, please phone the Alzheimer’s Society on 01296 718956. If you would like to volunteer to help, please phone Marion Fisher on 07803 115542.
