The Stockwell Restoration Project

The Stockwell Restoration Project

The Parish Council are keen to sponsor initiatives which seek to reconnect our community with its proud heritage.

 

A group was recently put together to manage ‘The Stockwell Restoration Project’, led by Derek Allen.

 

The Stockwell is a site of major historical in Chearsley Village and, in the absence of the necessary maintenance work over very many years, has deteriorated significantly and even presents some risk to public safety.

 

The restoration of the site will involve several key areas of work and it is hoped that the programme will commence in the coming weeks.

 

For those interested in seeing more detail, the group have just prepared a ‘progress report’ on the ambitions of the project and the works needed, and a copy can be downloaded from here lhttp://www.chearsleypc.org.uk/community/-13750/current-major-projects/

 

For further information, please contact John Howard (jnh@dbmc.co.uk)

Pop-up Plant Sale Sunday 11:30

Julian George will have a pop-up plant sale this Sunday June 13 from 11.30 at the gate of Furze Farmhouse
This will be for the Church.
Same as last year, and don't forget it is CASH only. Come and get your sprouts...

 


This Sunday Messy Church will be back at Chearsley Village Hall (outside).  We still can’t offer you food, but if you bring a picnic and blanket, we would love to sit and eat “together” at the end.

Our theme is “Toilet Twinning” so we will be doing lots of crafts and games based on toilets!
  • Can you lob a loo roll into a loo?
  • Throw a dice and race to build a compost loo
  • Make poo out of Weetabix, then plop it into the compost loo, adding sawdust to stop the smell
  • Play a memory game with all the bathroom items we take for granted
  • Get messy with toilet paper and glue as we make a collage together
  • Hear the story of Rachel, a schoolgirl from Africa, whose life was transformed by a toilet.
  • Write your prayers graffiti style on the back of a toilet door
  • Spend  a penny – can you get your pennies into the glass jar
 
We would love to raise £60 to twin our toilet with one abroad.  This will give us a photo of our twinned loo and its GPS co-ordinates so we can look it up on a map.  So, please bring all those pennies that are lying around your house.

We will still need to be in bubbles on picnic blankets, but can be a bit more relaxed about socialising and moving around.

Please let sharon@cloverdale.biz know if you think you can make it.

It's free, family, friendship, faith and fun!
