Village News

with Margaret morbey

6 Nations Rugby
Chearsley Cricket Club will again be showing live matches at their clubhouse with the first match of Wales v Ireland on February 2 at 1.30pm followed by England v Scotland at 4pm. In order to engender a spirit of “friendly antagonism”, volunteers to become Team captains for the various countries are being urged to come forward. The positions for Wales and England have already been filled, but captains to represent Ireland, Scotland, France and Italy are still needed. Please contact Larry Greenfield if you are interested.

Burglary in Church Lane
During the morning of Tuesday January 15 a house in Church Lane was broken into. Access was gained from the back of the property. Cash was stolen. If anyone has any information or saw anyone or anything suspicious which may be connected, please ring the police on the 101 non-emergency number. Another unfortunate reminder to always be alert and aware to keep our property secure. Cars in Nether Winchendon, Upper Pollicott, Ashenden have also been targeted recently, when, cash, sat navs, ipods and keys have been stolen. All these cars had been left unlocked.

Mobile Library
This is next in the village on Monday January 28 from 12.20 until 12.45pm.

Long Crendon and Chearsley Art Group
New members are always welcome at this small friendly group which meet every Wednesday morning from 10 until 12pm at Church House, Long Crendon. Please either call in or ring Jann Grimshaw on 01844 202630 for more information.

St Nicholas Church
Publication of the church magazine aCross, which serves Long Crendon, Chearsley and Nether Winchenden is coming to an end with the February edition being the last one. No-one has come forward to take over the job of editor when Anne Pratt the current editor finishes. It is hoped that it may be resurrected in the future. Until then, a list of services and other church functions and activities can be found on the St. Nicholas Church website.

Soul Spark
This week long event is being held in the church again this year from March 3 until March 9. Sharon Sampson is asking for help in the way of pictures from old magazines which could help with the theme of “celebration” – donations of any magazines of travel or nature would be much appreciated. A long shot is a request for a distorting mirror, or possibly a large bendy reflective board and also a 'Welcome' doormat. If you are able to help, please contact Sharon on 01844 208740.
