[07:42:02] Resident099:

Tammy. I have some dried dog food that I can spare. I’ll drop it to you when I take my daily exercise!
[07:42:51] Resident125:

Thank you very much Peter x
[07:45:37] Adrian Dale:

Does anyone know whether KFC is closed? I’m still getting KFC litter! It may just be people cleaning out their cars and vans on the move I suppose. Still annoying....
[07:56:57] Resident089:

I’d say no cause if it had reopened my girls would have been there 🤷‍♀️
[08:28:44] Brenda Elldred:

[08:59:03] Michelle Dalliston:

If you'd like to pray together today, join me in saying Morning Prayer at 9am using either the simple form of MP on the website or from the CofE Daily Prayer App or from the link here:

(Group Admin) From Resident059

I was speaking to my GSM (General Store Manager) on Sunday regarding getting food to those with letters from the nhs he told me as Asda don’t have loyalty cards like Waitrose and Sainsbury’s it’s difficult for them to get names and addresses so we have to wait for local authorities to get them to us, but once we have them there will be something put in place ASAP. They are also fitting the plastic screens in our shop on Thursday.
[09:32:14] Adrian Dale:

Another really helpful message from Joann!
[10:58:07] Resident017:

Anyone else notice that the idiot drivers out there seem to be taking this an opportunity to be even bigger idiots!!! Notice it a lot when I'm on the bike and working out the front this morning 👎🏻
[10:59:46] Adrian Dale:

Yep Ferrari with a Swiss plate roared through yesterday!
[11:09:15] Resident116:

There is a real intolerance to cycling in this country - combined with state of our roads - but yes the idiots that speed along Raunds Road seem to have a free reign now - be careful out there , few of my work colleagues who cycle have also received verbal abuse for just being out
[11:11:26] Resident047:

Yes they drive like idiots along Raunds Road and also along the Road into Chelveston from Higham. They must now see it as the open road for their lead shoes.
[11:15:03] Resident138:

Nearly got rin over crossing the road yesterday about 6.30 pm, went for a village walk in the rain, to avoid people but 3 others had the same idea...were trying to cross the road from village Hall to the little hill something came roaring round the corner, had to speed up to get across. If any councillors can get a speed van in the village at tea time instead of the middle of the day would be welcome
[11:16:14] Resident138:

Walking is getting problematic in the village due to narrow paths and idiots
[11:16:22] Resident060:

There is a black Swiss registered Ferrari on a driveway on the Kings Meadow estate. Walked by it the other day.
[11:17:06] Resident136:

Watched Elliott the postie open several gates this morning with his bare hands. Dread to think how many he has to touch every gate is now wedged open so that he and any other delivery people do not have to handle it.
[11:18:01] Resident117:

Presumably these idiots journeys are essential. Perhaps they're lucky enough to have secured a click and collect slot from the supermarket and can't get there quick enough!! Not!
[11:21:38] Resident047:

Great shout to leave the gates open and maybe even wipe your letter boxes and door bells guys. Maybe the postie could wear gloves ? Is does transmit on cardboard too so presumably paper as well.
[11:23:09] Resident047:

Maybe someone could say to Elliot about using gloves and hand gels and we could help him out my leave gates open and wiping our letters boxes as he will be touching all these too.
[11:25:35] Resident017:

Not that I should name and shame but I'm going to anyway....Mr JST in his Tesla, he is a menace at the best of times but must have been doing 50+ coming up to the speed sign this morning
[11:26:19] Resident116:

Maybe he does carry gel - he kept his distance when delivering to ours - I know gloves are a deterrent but I don’t use at work either as they make your hands sweat - bit of a catch 22 - just washed out hands after handling the post
[11:26:32] Resident116:

Too right name and shame the idiots
[11:29:18] Resident122:

This is starting to become a bit tense, can't we keep this group as a way to support one another and avoid the negativity? Maybe feedback can be shared privately with councellors etc?
[11:31:03] Adrian Dale:

We quarantine post now for several days. If looks important I glove up and slice envelope on three sides before tipping out contents. Envelope go straight into recycling and then gloves off. Middle name is “ultra-careful”
[11:31:39] Resident016:

I agree😊happy or helpful posts people pretty please! 😊
[11:31:40] Resident054:

Share not shame!
[11:31:54] Resident012:

I agree!
[11:32:28] Resident136:

I'm trying to support my local postie by lessening the risk of him catching any thing through contact , not moaning!!
[11:33:09] Resident016:

I agree with that too wendy😊
[11:33:37] Resident136:

Thanks Carol x
[11:33:51] Resident016:

And helpful hint Adrian -thanks 😊
[11:33:55] Resident047:

Yes I agree too. Adrian is right tho letter and packing in the bin and then wash hands. Gates open will help the postie.
[11:34:30] Resident047:

Protects him and protects us all common sense and simple really
[11:36:13] Resident116:

Sorry what’s tense about naming people who are speeding and causing a nuseance- nothing negative in highlighting a problem
[11:39:41] Resident038:

Agreed 😁
[11:41:54] Resident116:

Please explain to me what has been tense because I’m clearly missing something here - Caroline highlighted an issue with speeding motorists one of which had a business in the village , a suggestion for the postie without any substance what precautions he may already be taking that’s not visible to the human eye - I see nothing tense in here at all
[11:42:57] Resident130:

If we have concerns about speeding, and I am frequently terrified by some drivers on the A6 crossing the Higham roundabout towards Bedford - who do we inform so something can be done? We can have a moan on this site but I would like something done about it - any ideas?
[11:44:40] Resident116:

Not the PCC because they are not interested as it’s not in their own backyard ! Not Northants Police because they hold surgeries when most of us are at work so can’t raise issues face to face and when do you ever see Police patrolling this village - never
[11:44:49] Resident013:

 “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone..” there are a lot of self righteous on here
[11:45:15] Resident080:

Completely agree!
[11:47:07] Resident122:

I really don't want to get into a public discussion, I want to be here to support others. Raising issues important, but we shouldn't point at specific people - I don't (personally) feel we should play judge/jury :)

It's also possible I'm totally wrong 😆 I'd like to lighten the mood a bit by sharing a good video. Anyone got one? 😀
[11:48:58] Adrian Dale:

(Emergency Coordinator)

Just before lightening the mood ... I’ve just had our 5th case reported in. Thanks to the family concerned for letting me know. Remember we’ll all support you!!
[11:49:32] Resident122:

Our thoughts are with you :)
[11:49:46] Resident033:

Thinking of them all
[11:50:18] Resident130:

I know I'm a fool - but I honestly believe if you can get to the right person you can change the outcome! I am retired so work hours don't affect me - I could collect a list of such problems to take to a meeting & try to get things done. If not me - somebody else who might have more influence? It's worth a try & we've got a few weeks to arrange it!
[11:52:49] Ray Daniells:

Ray (PC Chairman) all your speeding problems let the PC know via email to clerk.
We are aware of the problem in this village as are the police.
Volunteers are always welcome to join our community speed watch team.
And we have noticed Mr JST speed.
[12:47:19] Resident094:

As the days merge into weeks having a sense of order and purpose becomes ever more important for all of us. Check out this wise guidance from church member Richard on our website to help order our days.

[15:05:18] Resident003:

Lovely, Rachel. Thank you!!🙂
[15:06:06] Ray Daniells:

Higham bakery delivery arrived safely 😁
[15:18:31] Resident131:

Just to let everyone know that Robinson’s in Kimbolton have bread, milk and eggs
[15:19:12] Resident030:

[15:19:13] Adrian Dale:

Really helpful thanks!!!
[15:21:41] Resident136:

Asda raunds also have bread and milk, not many eggs left though, 3 of each item per person, only queued for literally 1 minute to get in.

Sorry that lowered the tone after all those beautiful photos.....
[15:42:49] Adrian Dale:

Thanks Jennie a picture of the famed Chelveston Cliffs!! Stanwick residents dispute the name and call them Stanwick Cliffs. However, a couple of years ago they were transferred back into the Parish. There used to be a railway to Irthlingborough from there!
[15:43:46] Resident023:

No - they are Caldecott cliffs, my cottage came from them.
[15:49:26] Resident003:

[15:50:52] Brenda Elldred:

Beautiful pictures of Chelveston cliffs.
[15:51:22] Resident117:

Love the pics
[16:09:33] Resident012:

[16:10:55] Resident011:

How do you keep the water so clear? 😲
[16:12:20] Resident023:

Now if it wasn’t for C-19 we wouldn’t have seen the fly past!
[16:12:44] Resident012:

No fish and never add tap water
[16:13:06] Resident011:

Ah... well that's a no go for us as we have lots of kois
[16:14:50] Resident012:

Has to be one or the other 😊
[16:15:46] Resident135:

Happy Birhday Jenny
[16:15:47] Ray Daniells:

Yes he was a tad low!! Lovely to see a Merlin fly past!
[16:16:13] Resident023:

Is that what is was?
[16:16:58] Ray Daniells:

Yes couldn't see if RAF or navy though
[16:20:11] Resident012:

[16:36:32] Resident089:

Totally different question now we are doing some bits at the pub and wondered if anyone had any thin black ribbon or a pallet about that we could have please 😁xx
[16:38:02] Resident059:

We have a pallet Naomi if you would like to come and get it x
[16:40:48] Resident099:

Hi Naomi. We have a pallet outside (next door) but Ray did ask if he could have it for his allotment. If he no longer wants it you are welcome to have it. Ray?
[16:44:53] Resident104:

Naomi it’s not urgent for me please take it. Thanks Peter
[16:45:25] Resident089:

Ok not sure where these are could you let me know an address please x
[16:52:04] Resident099:

Delivered. I am next door at Top Farm House.😃
[16:53:25] Resident099:

Thanks Ray.
[17:54:15] Resident136:

Naomi- how much ribbon do you need? I have half a dozen pieces, only short bits, around 50 cm each are they any good to you?
[18:00:40] Resident023:

Thought you needed eggs Adrian. I have an empty box. and a spare loaf in the freezer as the milk man delivered extra this week
[20:01:57] Resident059:

[20:04:32] Adrian Dale:

It feels like Dad’s Army with rumours of sausages under the counter! We’ve not had Walker show up yet selling dodgy cans out of the back of the van though
[20:05:14] Resident028:

Omg I love dads army! I wonder if I can get it on Netflix!
[20:06:12] Resident028:

[20:06:28] Resident054:

[20:06:29] Resident033:

[20:06:38] Resident031:

[20:12:05] Adrian Dale:

No we are fine - we bake our own and buy one box of eggs a week. Good to see supplies settling down though!
[20:13:43] Resident033:

Brilliant. The story of Brexit seems so long ago poor Boris has had no luck so far and I bet Teresa May is happy in isolation too.
[20:16:05] Resident028:

Supplies are def settling. Asda had loo roll earlier!
[20:22:33] Resident002:

[20:37:15] Resident033:



A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word.
An earlier discussion had led to an argument and neither of them wanted to concede their position. As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs, the husband asked sarcastically, "Relatives of yours?"
"Yep," the wife replied, "in-laws."

*W O R D S*

A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use a day...
30,000 to a man's 15,000.
The wife replied, "The reason has to be because we have to repeat everything to men...
The husband then turned to his wife and asked, "What?"


A man said to his wife one day, "I don't know how you can be so stupid and so beautiful all at the same time." The wife responded, "Allow me to explain . God made me beautiful so you would be attracted to me;
God made me stupid so I would be attracted to you!"


A man and his wife were having an argument about who should brew the coffee each morning. The wife said, "You should do it, because you get up first, and then we don't have to wait as long to get our coffee."
The husband said, " You are in charge of cooking around here and you should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee."
Wife replies, "No, you should do it, and besides, it is in the Bible that the man should do the coffee."
Husband replies, "I can't believe that, show me."
So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and showed him at the top of several pages, that it indeed says.........."HEBREWS"

*The Silent Treatment*

A man and his wife were having some problems at home and were giving each other the silent treatment. Suddenly, the man realized that the next day, he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight. Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE) , he wrote on a piece of paper, "Please wake me at 5:00 AM ." He left it where he knew she would find it. The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM and he had missed his flight. Furious, he was about to go and see why his wife hadn't wakened him, when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed. The paper said, "It is 5:00 AM . Wake up."
Men are not equipped for these kinds of contests.

God may have created man before woman, but there is always a rough draft before the masterpiece.
