Chearsley Village Hall Playground Refurbishment Project

Over the last few months, Anne Adams and members of the playground committee have been busy researching the costs involved with updating our playground at the village hall.  

The plan is that a new playground will predominantly be targeted at younger children but will have some new pieces of equipment for older children and teenagers and will also be as accessible as possible.

As part of the process to secure funding, a consultation with the village and other users of the playground is being undertaken.  We would be grateful therefore, if you could take a couple of minutes to answer a few simple questions at this survey link below.

Chearsley Roadworks 24/3/22

We have been advised of an underground utilities survey by Buckinghamshire Council on

Thursday 24 March that will require:

**  Closure of the top of School Lane with consequent diversions around village roads
**  Traffic Control and one way movement on the main routes around the main Chearsley Junction

Timings/duration are not firm but it is expected to be in the morning.  The work involves only electronic detection methods, it will not be necessary to dig up the road.
This is in connection with the Parish Council plans to reconfigure the junction to improve safety and reduce speeding and completes work that was started on 25 January.

We apologise for the inconvenience these works will cause.  
If you have any questions, please email
