Mercedes in ditch going towards Cuddington

Owing to a vigilant member of the public who saw this car being driven erratically and dangerously from Long Crendon all the way into and through Chearsley on Friday night at around 6pm, reported it to the police, and observed it drive unaided into the ditch, police were on the scene quickly and took a person in for questioning. The mercedes will be removed at some point when investigations are complete. If you observed this car on that journey or have any further information please contact the police.

Local Election news

Congratulations to our very own Nic Brown for being elected a Bernwood ward county councillor over the weekend.

In the Chearsley Parish Council election the following stood and were unopposed:

Nic Brown, John Lewis, Julia Witcher, Paul Bown, Angela Gray, Keith Turnbull.

Many thanks go to John Howard, who, after many years of service has stood down this term as a Councillor but, thankfully, will continue to be very active on many of the PC & Village projects. Thanks also to Martin Hearmon who has also stood down on account of moving to Haddenham to be near family. He will be additionally missed for his help at the village hall but the CVH team are grateful to Anne Burnett for coming on board to run the bookings which are now picking up again as we exit lock down.

The PC welcomes Angela Gray for standing and becoming part of the PC, so that leaves one final place that will need to be co-opted. Please send enquiries or an expression of interest to one of the above councillors or email to before the next PC meeting on Monday May 17th. 

The next PC meeting is intended to go out on live stream YouTube and be recorded as before. Look up the Chearsley PC YouTube channel and subscribe. There will be a live chat on the stream for questions during the meeting or you can submit your questions in advance to

Your Support required for new Long Crendon Surgery/Health Centre

Some of you may have seen that the planning application for the Long Crendon health centre has now been submitted to Bucks Council. This will replace the old surgery.

It is by no means a done deal and every online comment/email/letter will count towards the application hopefully being approved. If you would like to support this then it would be really helpful if you & your family could register your support please ASAP as there is only a week left to submit comments. You can do so by clicking on the following link: 'Search for planning applications'. Under 'Status' choose 'current', enter the reference number - 21/01604/APP - and click 'Search'. Once the application has loaded, click on the box titled 'Make a Comment'.  You can be timed out writing a long comment, so it is may be worth writing your comment first, before copying and pasting it. Other emails of support are located in Documents, if you wish to see them. 
The planners will mainly note matters which are relevant to planning law, so you could focus your remarks on matters including:
You could also mention that outline planning consent was previously granted and that the alternative surgery in Brill is a 10-mile round trip so not good for the environment & an expensive trip for those without a car (not specifically planning-related but may be worth mentioning).
  • The design of the building
  • The positive impact of the building on the community
  • The sustainability features of the building (sedum roof/solar panels)
  • The importance of the building to you personally
  • The parking arrangements

Family Fun this Sunday

This Sunday is promising to be a bit warmer with no rain. Good job as we have Messy Church on picnic blankets in the churchyard 4-5pm. Our theme is the Bee-Attitudes and we have crafts and games including making wildflower bee bombs. Come along for some free faith, friendship family fun.

No need to book but it would help me if you can tell me if you are planning on coming.
