Village News

with Margaret Morbey

Katy Spencer Bernard
It was a great shock to learn of the death of Katy Spencer Bernard recently. She had suffered ill health for many years. Although she no longer lived in Nether Winchendon, she continued to contribute to the Parish Magazine which served that village and Chearsley. Her funeral took place on a very wet November 13th.

Chuf Table Top Sale
The ladies from Chuf are holding a table top sale at Chearsley Village Hall on Saturday, November 29th from 2 – 4pm. A good chance to do some Christmas shopping where there will be lots of bargains, nearly new toys, some still boxed and other good quality items. If you miss it, you miss out! A percentage of the proceeds will be donated to CHUF.

Chearsley Calendar
This very individual and local calendar will be on sale from The Bell and Chearsley Shop from now on. Proceeds go to Florence Nightingale Hospice in remembrance of Jackie Brown.

Mobile Library
This is next in the village at The Bell carpark, or nearby, on Monday 24th November. Don’t forget that the time has changed to 1.10 to 1.35pm

Adrian Flanagan
Adrian, who's wife, Louise, used to live in Dark Lane, Chearsley, has written about his sailing expedition. His book “Over the Top” is now on sale at all good book shops for £16.99 and details how Adrian became the first lone yachtsman to sail vertically around the world.
