10-12am Manor Farm, Chearsley

Lots of delicious this season and yearling lamb.
This is herby and full of flavour.

I also have a small amount of beef 

A new batch of aged beef coming in a few weeks - feel free to order your box now for winter stews and roasts - delicious!)

Plus delicious organically grown apple juice, freshly pressed and locally pasteurised, it will keep for up to 2 years out of the fridge. 


These are £300 including VAT and have been hand processed in Somerset by the only organic tannery in England.
They are tanned using citric acid and mimosa bark and no horrible chemicals so are perfect for snuggling up on or for a new baby.

All meat prices on

Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal 2023

Remembrance Sunday takes place in a few weeks’ time and once again we have a team of volunteers who’ll be calling on homes in the village to collect donations for the Royal British Legion ‘Poppy Appeal 2023’.

The village collection will start on Thursday 26th October, so you can expect a visit from one of our volunteers – Alex How, Geoff Olding, Gill Wight, Karen Vear, Ruth Holland or yours truly.

Sharon will also be organising a collection at The Bell from that date.

Our Church will again be organising a special service at the War Memorial on Remembrance Sunday (12th November) and this will be followed by refreshments at The Village Hall, during which there will be an exhibition of memorabilia, provided by a number within our community.

More details will be published shortly and we would of course be delighted if any in our community would also like to share any of their own memories.

Please support this very worthy cause.

Kind Regards

John Howard

Bell Ringing


On a few occasions during the year, St Nicholas's Church hosts some special belling ringing.  Starting around 10am on Monday 9th October, a visiting team of skilled ringers will be attempting to ring a full peal.


A peal is a non-stop sequence of a minimum of 5,000 changes where each sequence is different and cannot be repeated. This takes around three hours to ring and is the bell ringers' equivalent of a marathon, requiring concentration and stamina to complete the peal.


Please do listen out for what promises to be some excellent ringing.
