Steam Train through Chearsley this Sunday July 1st 2018
I have very reliable information that there will be a Steam Train scheduled to be pulled by Union of South Africa leaving London Paddington at 11.15am on its journey to Stratford-Upon-Avon travelling therefore along the Chiltern line. If you would like to watch it, the advice is that it is due to be in Princes Risborough at 12.30pm and therefore passing through Haddenham at about 12.35pm. But, the advice is to allow plenty of time for it to be a bit early or possibly late. On the return, if timings go to plan, and they often don’t, the train should be coming through Haddenham at 20.20pm. As you might have guessed, a couple of Chearsley villagers will be on board, possibly waving hankies or a beer glass out of the window as they pass through Chearsley.

Chearsley Challengers
Sharon is such a busy lady. A family to look after as well as being a great Landlady of The Bell offering great pub food and good beer and always cheerfully and helpfully serving and cooking for her customers (and some of the local customers can be quite a handful!). Not content with all of that, she and some friends from the Bell are taking part in a 50 kilometre Cotswold Way Challenge raising money for Parkinsons UK. This is on Saturday June 30, starting at 9am from Wotton –Under-Edge walking 50k to Cheltenham probably ending about midnight. You can guarantee she will be back behind the bar and in the kitchen on Sunday. How does she do it? A wonderful lady.
She is walking with Nicky, Terry, Furry (or Christopher as mentioned in a plug for the walk by Steve Fox on Red Kite Radio on Saturday afternoon),and Brian (Sharon’s Dad). All are to be congratulated for taking part in this Challenge. Good luck to them. Donations in aid of Parkinsons UK would be much appreciated and you can do this by going to
