The Last Burma Lunch

Tyringham Hall

Sunday 9th July   12.30 for 1.00 pm

This year will be the last Burma Lunch.  Many of you have supported the Burma Forces Welfare Association during the past 25 years through donations, charitable functions, and by attending the annual Burma Lunch.  The one million pounds raised during these 25 years helped support the Old Burmese Soldiers who fought with your own brave men during WW2.

Most of the old soldiers have now died.  The BFWA committee now wish to complete a school building in the north of Burma to educate the grandchildren of those old Burmese old soldiers who gave their lives for Great Britain.  The orphanage and school will be constructed in a remote couner of the north, where education barely exists.

Sherry and Phil invite you to join them for the last time in the gardens of Tyringham Hall for a pre-lunch Bucks Fizz, a traditional Burmese curry including wine, followed by Tyringham dessert, cheese, biscuits and coffee.  For £35 per person you can eat and drink as much as you like.

During the afternoon there will be live entertainment, an auction, a tombola and dancing on the garden lawns.  For the ladies, there will be the opportunity to buy quality Burmese jewellery.

This year will be the last time we ask for your final donations and we thank you most sincerely for your wonderful support in the past.  The past years’ lunches has proved very popular so please book early to avoid disappointment.  Contact Phil Johnson philjohnsonpen@gmail.com or 01844 291526.

 

Village Tidy Up – Sunday 4th June at 10am

Cuddington has once again entered the Best Kept Village competition and in preparation for the judging (anytime from June through to July), the Parish Council has organised a Village Tidy on Sunday 4th June at 10am.

As well as being marked on the overall appearance of the village including lack of litter and community effort, Cuddington will be judged on areas around the shop and pub, bus shelters, notice boards, war memorial, children’s play area and the playing field.

If you are available to lend a helping hand with our Village tidy up, please email cuddingtonpc@gmail.com.  We’ll meet outside the Bernard Hall at 10am.  Litter pickers, high-vis jackets and bags will be provided.  Please bring gloves.

 

Vertebrate Watch Results 2017

This is the seventh year that people around Cuddington have spent an hour watching their gardens or a piece of ground around the village and recorded the birds, mammals, amphibians and reptiles that they see.  The aims are:

  • To get a small insight into the wildlife in Cuddington, and
  • To track any changes between years and over time

Eleven people took part this year, spread around the entire village, and the full results, along with those of the past six years, are on the PDF report here.  Any queries address to doug@doug-kennedy.com.

Filming the episode in Charles Riley’s garden 

Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is

Cuddington resident and coins and medals expert Charles Riley will appear in an upcoming episode of the antiques-themed BBC TV programme Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is.  The programme pits two personalities from the world of antiques against one another, buying objects at car boot sales, auctions etc. and then reselling them.  The person who makes the most profit is the winner.

In this episode the two ‘competitors’ are Chuko Ojiri and Eric Knowles.  Ojiri, who has an interior design shop in East London, has bought an 18th century guinea balance (for weighing gold guineas, to see that they are the correct weight) at a car boot sale in Chesterfield.  Charles talks to him about the balance and then offers him a buying price.  Watch the programme to find out more...

The programme can be viewed on the BBC iPlayer, here.  The piece with Charles is towards the end of the programme, about 39 minutes in.

Wave of Prayer 

Thy Kingdom Come

As part of a global time of prayer between 25th May and 4th June entitled ‘Thy Kingdom Come’, St Nicholas Church, together with the other churches in the benefice have put together a series of events to which everyone is welcome to come.

Full details of the events can be found in this leaflet.

 

Sunrise Walk

The traditional Cuddington Sunrise Walk to mark Midsummer will take place on Saturday 24th June.  Leaving Cuddington Lower Green at 4am, a steady climb up to the observatory at Upper Winchendon will be rewarded with stunning views over the Vale – and hopefully a clear sky to see the sun’s disc rising over the Chilterns.  Refreshments will be served at the top before the easy descent back into the village.  Any queries to Angela Wenham 01844 291932.

 

Fete Theme for 2017 announced!

This year the Fete will take place on the 8th July and will have a ‘Fairytale Theme’.  Dust off your glass slippers, beware the big bad wolf, keep your eyes peeled for Prince Charming and whatever you do don’t touch the large bowl of porridge!

If you’d like to help out you can contact the Fete’s fairy godmother at m0301291@doctors.net.uk (also goes by the name of Jo Goodson).
