Eat Out to help Out at The Bell - Greg Smith MP visit

Greg Smith, our local MP, visited the Bell last Friday to officially launch the Government "Eat Out to Help Out" scheme which runs Aug 3-31.  This offers a 50% discount (of up to £10 per diner) for eat-in only meals (includes soft drinks) purchased on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday ( full details are at:

The Bell is a member of the scheme but note, does not serve food on a Monday, so the scheme will only operate on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 12-2pm, 6-9pm.

If you have neighbours who might not be on this Blog distribution please let them know about this scheme so they do not miss out !

Chearsley Car show postponed for 2020 but 12th Sept chosen for 2021

The committee looked at a variety of ways to alter the format of this year’s show to comply with all the relevant guidelines on ‘social distancing’ but concluded that it would not be right to go ahead with an event which involved a public gathering of significant numbers of people, given the current uncertainties remaining regarding the spread of the COVID 19 pandemic.

“We were deeply saddened to have made this decision but we felt it was the right course of action in the current circumstances,” said committee member Andy Yorke

“This would have been our 9th show and our event has gone from strength to strength over the years. We have identified Sunday 12th September 2021 as the date for next year’s show and we are already working on ambitious plans to mark our 10th anniversary in great style” said Andy.

The show has provided vital resources for the development of junior cricket at Chearsley Cricket Club in recent years and club members and show supporters are invited to make a contribution this year by making a donation at the club's Just Giving page on this link
