ST MARY'S WORKS OPEN DAY #1
Sixty five visitors, including 15 children from Chalgrove Primary School,donned hi-vis jackets and red hard hats to see what is going on inside St Mary's church, on the first of two Open Days. Those with a head for heights climbed the two ladders in the chancel to get a close up view of the famous wall paintings which are currently being cleaned and conserved by conservator Madeleine Katkov and her team.
If you would like to see what is going on in the church then there will be a second opportunity to do so from 2pm to 3.30pm on Friday 20th November(see Events below).
OLD TYME MUSIC HALL SUPPER
This was a really enjoyable and relaxed evening. First we had a superb supper of sausage and mash cooked by Jeanette and served by her team of willing helpers, with the bar ably run by Gill and Derek, then we had the Music Hall entertainment fronted by Master of Ceremonies Andrew Jarvis and accompanied by Chris Devonport on the piano. Ian, Patricia, Rhiannon, Bob, Cathy and Andrew all sang for us and with us, Rhiannon played her gypsy fiddle with panache and brio, and Gill gave an excellent rendering of that old favourite "The Little Green Eyed Goddess". To add to the pleasure a total of £1271 was raised for the life and work of the church. Many thanks to Jeanette and to everyone who helped to make it such a successful evening.
