Village News

with Margaret Morbey

Watch Rugby at Chearsley Cricket Club
The Cricket Club will again be showing all England matches and some of the other “tastier” ones of the IRB Rugby Six Nations during February and March at the Cricket Pavilion. The bar will be open, food will be available and a sweepstake will be run. Please phone John Howard on 208036 for more information.

Mobile Library
This will next be in Chearsley on Monday February 13 from 12.20 until 12.45pm.

Clothing bags for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research

Bags were recently distributed throughout Chearsley asking for donations of clothing, shoes, toys, etc. I have been contacted by a resident concerned that these were not from a bona fide charity. Has anyone any knowledge about the registered charity Beating Blood cancers, whose name was on the bags? Cancer Research say that they never put bags round for collection. I understand that the bags put round by the Salvation Army are the only ones where all the profit made goes to their cause.

Diamond Anniversary
Congratulations to Jock and Mary Scholefield of Chilton Road who have celebrated their 60th Wedding anniversary this week.

Cyndy Whiffen
St Nicholas Church Chearsley was overflowing on Thursday February 3 for Cyndy’s funeral and her burial in the churchyard. Tributes bravely delivered by Cyndy’s two sons and the address by John Wynburne revealed what an intelligent, musically talented and sporty lady Cyndy was, having had a highly respected and successful career , and always having great pride in the musical and sporting success of her children. She was greatly involved with Aylesbury Choral Society who were there to sing at her funeral. Her many friends from W.I. and the village will miss her. Love and condolences go to her family.
