November In Your Garden

1st of November 2014

The leaves are falling and the garden is becoming dormant. This is the month to get things shipshape, to build compost heaps and to light bonfires and to get things planted before the winter is upon us. Fruit and vegetables Lift the root crops before the frost arrives and harvest brassicas but make sure that […]

Graceful Grazers

1st of November 2014

I always enjoy my first walk of the day with Ted, my dog. I get out of bed needing fresh air the way some folk need a cup of tea, so as soon as I am dressed we go out. If we are nice and early we see more wildlife, but we don’t always manage […]

A Special Year For Remembrance

Once again we will gather at the War Memorial early next month to remember those from the village who gave their lives in the two World Wars of the twentieth century.

The Chipperfield Project Group, the Steering Committee behind the setting-up and establishment of the proposed new Burial Ground and consisting of eight residents of the village, welcomes the Rector’s recent comments regarding the Church’s position on this matter.

Our Lady Mother Of The Saviour Rc Church

1st of November 2014

The commercial presence of Hallowe’en imposes itself on society more and more each year, such that its origin in being the eve of All Saints’ Day and thus the first of three days in the early Christian church that were known as Allhallowtide, is all but lost from view. It is, of course, the time […]

St Paul’s And Holy Cross

1st of November 2014

Do this in remembrance of me……. How do you remember those you have loved and lost? It never ceases to amaze me that as Jesus was nearing the time of his death, he sat with his closest friends and shared a meal. With him at table were those who would deny their friendship, those who […]

Baptist Church

1st of November 2014

Writing for this issue of Chipp News is not an easy exercise. I would hope that everyone recognises the importance of this particular month. It is likely that this is one of the most poignant and reflective months in our history. We continue to hear, and moreover to see, the effects of war and the […]

Chipperfield Horticultural Society

1st of November 2014

Our final show of the year was held on 20 September in the Village Hall. Despite the gloomy weather outside, the hall was filled with wonderful flowers and produce. The dahlias and chrysanthemums were truly outstanding, both in size and colour, and a joy to behold. As always at this show, the vegetables come into […]

Cornish Connections

1st of November 2014

Whilst on holiday in Cornwall at the end of September, we made two visits which immediately connected us with St Paul’s Church in Chipperfield. We visited Truro Cathedral which, when built in the 1880s, was the first new cathedral to be built in the country for six hundred years. Of special interest to me, a […]
