Chipperfield Theatre Group – Stepping Out

20th of September 2007

As something of a frustrated playwright, I sometimes scoff at the plays this talented troupe have to perform and wonder what they could do with a really good piece of sharp writing. Richard Harris� critically acclaimed Stepping Out seemed the perfect test. Would they flounder attempting to ape Minelli, Walters and co. or would they […]

1st Chipperfield Brownie Pack

20th of September 2007

We have welcomed 5 new girls since Easter. We have enjoyed lots of fun-packed meetings/activities this term, including a German and French language night where no English was spoken! The girls have also worked for their Seasons badge. We had a sponsored agility circuit to raise money for Children with Leukaemia and raised an amazing […]

The Senior section of Chipperfield Corinthians Football Club have had a good start to the season in their warm up friendlies and are looking forward to going one better than last year. The first team finished in […]

September In Your Garden

2nd of September 2007

During the last year we have certainly experienced some extraordinary weather and as a result gardens are full of wonderful colour and we are having a bumper fruit crop. Blight on potatoes and tomatoes has been bad and severely diseased plants should be burnt. Some trees are suffering because of last year’s drought and the […]

Snakes Alive !

2nd of September 2007

I do not know what it is about snakes but, even when I know it�s a grass snake and therefore quite harmless, the hairs on the back of my neck still stand on end! We first saw one in the garden 5 or 6 years ago. A baby snake slithered over my boot whilst I […]

Fund Raising For The Hertfordshire Air Ambulance

2nd of September 2007

At the end of the summer term, the Chipperfield School of Dancing put on a show The Wizard of Oz at the Boxmoor Playhouse. The show was a great success, the pupils really did me proud!

John Prestwich

2nd of September 2007

Following John�s Thanksgiving Service in March last year, many of you kindly gave donations in his memory to the charity The Lane Fox Respiratory Unit Patients� Association. A total of over �3,000 was received and at long last I am able to tell you how this money has been used. After much deliberation it was […]

Many people in the village will remember Joyce and Arthur Ellery. Arthur was Vicar of St Paul�s from 1986-1993 before retiring to Orton Waterville, near Peterborough. Sadly, news has come from there that Maggie, their younger adopted daughter died at the beginning of August. She had suffered long-term health problems associated with her diabetes. Maggie […]

Edith Griffin

2nd of September 2007

We were saddened to learn that our dear friend and colleague, Edith, had died on July 4. Edith supported the Horticultural Society over many years, most notably in her role as Treasurer. After retiring from this most demanding position in 1995, she continued as a Committee member until just two years ago. The Society will […]

St Paul�s And Holy Cross

2nd of September 2007

Could it be just an accident of language that the letters to form the words have and share are both contained in the word harvest? And they are not the only ones. Eat and starve are there too: and surprisingly so are ears and hear! Now, I love playing with words and letters to see […]

Another Windmill At The Windmill!

A Chipperfield young man, Alistair Wheeler, aged 18, has worked as a part-time waiter at The Windmill pub for 3 years. As a project for part of his A-level in Design Technology, Alistair has designed and built a solar-powered windmill for the garden at the pub. Alistair became interested in the idea because during the […]

Horticultural Society

2nd of September 2007

Last summer we had a hose pipe ban and wonderfully hot weather, this year, what a contrast, weeks of rain and wind playing havoc with all the garden flowers and vegetables, but the Village Hall in Chipperfield on 23 June was a delight, full of fantastic flowers and produce. The scent of sweet peas and […]
