Village Hall AGM

Wednesday 19th June at 7.30 pm in Chelwood Village Hall.


Chelwood Village Hall is registered charity run for the benefit and interests of the village  by a committee which is elected each year at the AGM. This is an opportunity for residents to come along and hear what has been happening and what plans we have for the future, but more importantly to find out what ideas you have for how we should be using the Hall, what improvements you would like to see and what sort of events we should be putting on in the Village. What is more it, is a chance to bring your particular skills to the running of the Hall and staging events by joining the Committee or leading on a project. Every year the offices of the Committee - Chair (currently myself), Treasurer (currently Pat Harrison) and Secretary (currently Anne Harrison) - are up for re-election - so if you want to propose someone for any of these roles, or stand yourself, then please let Anne or myself know or simply turn up on the night and make your proposals. It is vital that we have new faces and younger blood to ensure that the Village Hall is run in a way that reflects the needs of all who live in Chelwood.

Return of The Thankful Village Tribute Tour

 Sunday 30th June about 5pm

During the summer of 2013 Medwyn Parry and Dougie Bancroft rode their motorbikes to every one of the 51 Thankful Villages in the United Kingdom which had been identified at that time.  The journey started at Llanfihangel y Creuddyn, near Aberystwyth, at 9:00am on Saturday the 27th of July, and some 2,500 miles and 9 days later it finished at the same point, at about 6:00pm on Sunday the 4th of August.  The riders left a commemorative plaque at each Thankful Village and raised funds in support of the Royal British Legion. You may have seen the stone plaque they left when they visited Chelwood, which is attached to the wall by the main door. There was a good turn out to greet them. 

Medwyn and Dougie are now planing to visit five newly discovered Thankful Villages to complete their tour of all Thankful Villages to coincide with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles as the formal conclusion of the First World War. They are visiting one near Stonehenge on the afternoon of Sunday 30 June and plan to call in Chelwood around 5.00 pm en route for another village near Swainswick north of Bath. They were very appreciative of their reception in Chelwood last time and therefore wanted to call in again but cannot stop for long. We will have the Village Hall open and will invite all residents and supporters along to meet them, with some light refreshments on offer. We will firm up details later and will update you all closer to the event. 

The research on identifying and describing all Thankful Villages is at http://www.hellfirecorner.co.uk/thankful.htm
