Village News

with Margaret Morbey

Long Crendon Young Farmers are organising and hosting this all day event at The Bail, Waddesdon Estate, by kind permission of Lord and Lady Rothschild. A Great family day out including main ring events, fun dog show, rural working skills demonstrations, heavy horse displays, vintage vehicles, bouncy castle, tractor displays, local food and craft stalls, competitions and raffle in aid of Florence Nightingale Hospice. Go to their website for more information.

Jubilee plans are well in hand for celebrations for everyone on Monday June 4. Lunch for children will be provided by the village and set up in the road outside The Bell. It is hoped that all villagers will come to The Green either bringing their own lunch, for themselves or to share or eating at The Bell which will be offering their usual lunchtime menu. Transport within the village to and from The Green is available for anyone who would be unable to come without a lift . Please let me know on 208913. Evening celebrations will include refreshments, dancing and a screen to watch the concert taking place at Buckingham Palace. The Church Bells will be rung during the candlelit procession down to the Church at 9.30 for the lighting of the beacon.

VILLAGE HALL QUIZ – Saturday June 30
If you missed the Florence Nightingale Quiz recently or perhaps took part and have had your appetite whetted for another one, you may be interested in coming to the next quiz to be held in Chearsley village hall, on Saturday June 30, organized by the Village Hall committee. More details will be available nearer the time.

The fifth meeting was held in the Village Hall on Monday April 30. Although progress by the various topic groups is being made, more involvement from villagers is vital for the eventual Plan to reflect the village’s hopes for the future of Chearsley. To this end, questionnaires may be sent out, another door drop to families who have not yet responded and an information table on The Green on Jubilee day Monday June 4 will be arranged.

FUN DAY  - Sunday May 13
Hopefully it will be warmer and the sun will shine on Sunday May 13 from 12 until 4 when other family day is being held at the home and garden of Paul and Ann Persson at Long Meadow, Dark Lane. Bring along a picnic, something to sit on and relax with friends and neighbours while the children play and take part in activities. Please contact Sharon Sampson on 208740 for more information or if you would like to help.

Bins only are being collected today Wednesday May 9. Bins and recycling baskets on Tuesday May 15.
