Chearsley Pub Revival Day - Saturday 13th June

In recent years, a programme of ‘Historic Chearsley’ events has been organised under the aegis of the Parish Council, to reconnect our village with its proud heritage.

It is planned to hold ‘The Chearsley Pub Revival Day’ on Saturday 13th June 2020

Today just one public house (‘The Bell’) does a wonderful job in serving our local community and providing a valuable social hub.

Historical records show that as many as five other houses in village have sold beer and refreshments to local residents at various times during the last three or four hundred years (‘The Boot’ ‘The Old Plough’ ‘The Pig & Whistle’ ‘The Red Lion’ ‘The White Horse’), each with a fascinating story to tell.

The format of the day will be as follows:

12.30 – 14.00
Reception, exhibition and launch at Chearsley Village Hall

14.00 – 17.30
Walk round the houses in the village, which previously sold beer to the local community, with a presentation and refreshments provided by the current owners

18.00 – 22.30 BBQ and party at The Bell

Put the date in your diaries – more details to follow
