Just Passing By – What A Joy!

19th of September 2002

The headline above was the comment of one visitor to St. Pauls Flower Festival held in July and it sums up a superb weekend of beautiful flowers, music, refreshments and friendship and, luckily, the weather! The 33 flower arrangers were brilliant with their interpretations of the subjects given to them with the theme “With Hearts, […]

It is with great sadness that we report the death of our daughter Judy. She was diagnosed with cancer in late February and died on July 31. As a girl, she, with her great friend Nichola Furlong, were pony-mad and as teenagers the two young blonds on their two grey ponies were a familiar sight […]

The Village Chest

2nd of September 2002

At the Annual Parish Meeting in April 2001 it was unanimously agreed that funds in the Village Chest should be transferred to the Dacorum Community Trust to be administered by them for the benefit of the village.

Opportunity Knocks

2nd of September 2002

Life has been a bit hectic since I wrote my last notes. In the middle of June a high-pressure system came up from the Azores to settle over southern England. It was time to jump on the tractor and mow the hay down at the farm. I am not the best tractor driver in the […]

Kate Farrow

Law And Order

2nd of September 2002

Statistics tell us that Chipperfield has one of the lowest crime rates in Dacorum but this does not make the recent spate of acts of theft and vandalism in the village any more palatable. There are vandals in our midst, some from our community and some from outside, who are prepared amongst other things to […]

Chipperfield Corinthians Football Club Centenary Ball

Congratulations to all those involved in putting on such a wonderful evening. It was a credit to all concerned – to get over 300 people together at one event takes some doing. Many of those present had played for the club at some time during the past 50 years and some had travelled over 100 […]
