Chipperfield Village Hall And Extend

1st of April 2011

I would like to say that it gives me great pleasure to drive weekly to Chipperfield from Pinner to take my Extend class in your well-appointed village hall. I also enjoy Chipperfield News which offers so much local information and seems to demonstrate that the village has the community at its heart. Wendy Hardwick

Did you know that an average well cultivated allotment can yield in excess of £1000 worth of produce a year? (“Which Gardening” magazine).

Gardening In April

1st of April 2011

With the exception of tender annuals and perennials this is a good month for planting pot grown and container grown plants.

Death In The Garden

1st of April 2011

made a kill. I always have a look to see if I can tell what is on the menu; pigeon is very popular. This time I got a surprise as there among the feathers was the body of the sparrowhawk itself. So often I have watched it nimbly whizzing through the trees and only last […]

Baptist Church

1st of April 2011

St Paul’s And Holy Cross

1st of April 2011

When I was small an Easter egg was a real treat and, of course, it was empty inside; just a shell of chocolate which was much enjoyed. It was only many years later that I learnt why the egg was empty; simply because it was a reminder that on the first Easter Day, the tomb […]
