Flower Festival

Joy Payne would be very pleased to receive advance offers of help (not just offers of flowers and greenery, also people to make the teas and welcome visitors and show them round).   Previous Festivals have seen the church looking gorgeous, and large numbers of people attending.

Rosemary Wallis

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Rosemary Wallis who had lived in Dark Lane in the house built by her husband Don in the 1950s. Rosemary had been unwell for a few months and died in Stoke Mandeville hospital a few days ago. 

The contribution Rosemary made to St Nicholas over many years is great. She was a real stalwart of the church as Church warden, also organising the church flowers and running the Sunday School and allotments.

Outside of the church, she was chairman of the annual fete committee; President of Chearsley W.I. for many years; the setting up of the annual village fruit and vegetable show and more recently her regular tea parties in her home for the older members of the village who enjoyed the social gatherings and delighted in her home made cakes. Since her childhood, Rosemary had been a member of Aylesbury Choral Society. A quiet, private lady who has loved and cared for Chearsley more than most people will realize. She will be greatly missed and our condolences go to her family.

Palm Sunday Procession

On a glorious Spring Palm Sunday morning, the parishes of Long Crendon, Chearsley and Nether Winchendon celebrated Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem with a combined service at St Nicholas’ Church, Chearsley. Procedings began at Chearsley Village Hall with a continental breakfast, and palm branches made from old newspapers. Then under a cloudless sky, all processed down to the church led by “Lottie”, Alex Wall Morris’s sweet natured little brown pony, posing on this occasion as a donkey! Lottie was totally unphased by everything, even the wonderful pealing of the bells as the procession arrived at church. Many thanks to her minders Livvy and Claire. Reverend Richard Phillips, vicar of our three parishes, led a joyful Family Holy Communion Service to a full church.
