Chearsley Village Classic and Vintage Fun Day - Sunday September 13
Gates open at 12 noon for free entry. Off road car parking nearby and provision for disabled drivers. One of the highlights of this event will be the Spitfire Fly-pass which is programmed to take place at 12.30pm, so prompt arrival would ensure a view of this aerial display. Included in the afternoon’s entertainment are some live bands. There is a welcome return of EJ or Emily Jane, a 16 year old from High Wycombe with a lovely voice who writes her own songs. Also providing musical entertainment will be Blind Drunk, a duo from near Milton Keynes who take their name from the keyboard player who is blind. So bring a seat, grab a burger and a beer  and sit and enjoy the music before having another  look round at the vintage vehicles and other side shows.

Church Service acknowledging HM The Queen becoming the longest serving Monarch
This will take place on Wednesday September 9 at 4.30pm at St Mary’s Church, Aylesbury and is open to the public to attend. The Service will be hosted by the Town Mayor of Aylesbury, the Chairman of AVDC and the Chairman of Bucks County Council. The Lord-Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire and The High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire will be joining the three civic leaders. The Bishop of Buckingham will be addressing the congregation in a Service arranged by the Rector of St Mary’s, Father Doug Zimmerman.
St Mary’s refectory will be open prior to the Service for the purchase of refreshments. The Queen is to mark the day by opening the UK’s biggest new domestic railway line for more than a century The Queen will travel by steam train from Edinburgh to Tweedbank near Galashiels on this day, September 9, to formally open the new Borders Railway, reviving a rail tradition dating back to the 1840s. The journey, accompanied by the Scottish First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, will also be a powerful, visible reminder of the Queen’s love for Scotland on the day she surpasses her great-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria’s record for the longest reign.
