Rosemary Wallis’s funeral
A lovely suggestion for everyone who would like to attend the funeral for Rosemary on Tuesday May 9 at 12.30 is to pick a sprig of rosemary from your garden and wear it in her memory. If you are unable to attend, why not just pick some rosemary and think of her.

New Village Hall Fund
There is still £60,000 left to raise to ensure that our new hall will be built and ready for activities and events next year. The Village Hall committee is now inviting everyone to make a cash donation to achieve this sum. The names of all donors will be recognised in the Giving Tree which will be permanently placed inside the front entrance to serve as a reminder of your generosity and community spirit for years to come. If you are able to donate, the best method is by visiting the dedicated fundraising page at www.make-a-donation.org, and search for Chearsley Village Hall. Gift aid can also be claimed on your donation. Alternatively, a bank transfer can be made or a cheque or cash donation given to one of the committee members, Alex Wall Morris, Antonia Stratford, Angela Gray or John Lewis.
