[08:00:17] Brenda Elldred:

Really interesting hearing all the history of Chelveston Adrian. Thank you.
[08:21:27] Resident135:

Very interesting as usual Adrian, thanks
[08:25:38] Resident065:

I’ll say 🤦‍♀️
[08:27:48] Resident052:

Really enjoyed the daily briefing today (as we always do) but today the memories of Christine & Michael were lovely and how through the years peoples generosity has made these villages such lovely places to live
[08:32:34] Resident063:

Thank you Adrian very interesting today. The philanthropy in the community is a real blessing
[09:08:09] Resident131:

Thank you Adrian, absolutely loving listening to the history of the Village and the memories of Richard 😁
[09:09:09] Resident131:

Hi, Adrian, I have left the bag of flour for Aitch on the flower pot by the front door, Vanessa
[09:09:31] Adrian Dale:

Just about to start the van run
[09:09:44] Resident131:

[09:14:48] Michelle Dalliston:

Thanks Adrian - wonderful to hear of so much generosity down the years - and so glad we got the church path sorted 😊 that's already been such a blessing this year at the Snowdrop Festival and hopefully is making it easier for everyone to walk around the churchyard on daily walks etc. And so good to keep seeing all this community spirit and mutual care going on today 🥰🌈☀️
[09:26:22] Resident101:

Thank you Adrian. Love hearing the history of the village. Feel so lucky we were able to move to this lovely village nearly 5 years ago now.
[09:58:42] Resident093:

Thanks Adrian. As newbies to the village it's great to hear some of it's history. Keep it up!
[10:26:35] Resident058:

Thinking of The Americans during the war, Maynard Baxter told me a story about an American, whose job was to empty water tankers from the base. The water was emptied in the Brook at Chelveston. The American was doing this one day and sat back to enjoy a cigarette. When the tanker was empty he discarded his cigarette into the brook. This was met by a ‘snake of flames’ that raced around all the brooks in the village, he had emptied Aviation Fuel instead. Not sure he was welcome to lunch at the Club.😀
[10:27:54] Adrian Dale:

Now that I hadn’t heard!!!
[10:39:30] Resident075:

Great update Adrian, thankyou
[10:49:02] Resident006:

Old Club House is feeling quite famous now ! ☺️
[12:07:10] Resident051:

I must have been destined to live here on the original school land. As Adrian knows, my Grandad, Arthur Farrar, was headmaster at the newer school in 1950-52 - maybe Horace remembers him, not sure anyone else was here then. My Dad, also Arthur, and his 2 sisters Marcia and Olivia attended the school and they lived in school house. Adrian was kind enough to allow Dad to look around school house when it was being renovated - the only part he could recall was under the stairs which suggests he may have spent time there for misbehaving! It’s just a coincidence we live here now but I do feel some sort of connection - only been here 12 years so still relative newbies!
[12:37:24] Adrian Dale:

I’d forgotten that Janellan!! Have just looked at Mark’s history web site and your Grandfather is there!
[13:15:12] Brenda Elldred:

They are worth it - please think about donating. X
[13:16:29] Resident012:

[14:31:33] Resident007:

Anytime really, they do need a wash so happy to zap them in the dishwasher and have them ready later on or tomorrow. I can leave them on the corner of our drive
[14:38:12] Resident086:

Manda, I think Adrian wd be happier collecting and delivering, he is collecting from me at 3.30pm and delivering, I felt bad because its only to Duchy Close but he is happier doing it 👍😀, give him a message 👍
[14:39:56] Resident097:

[14:43:56] Resident019:

[14:48:36] Resident007:

@447792074361 happy to let Adrian know if you want them today but I won't have time to put them through the dishwahser before 3.30, or can have them cleaned ready for tomorrow.
[14:49:39] Resident122:

I can run them through the dishwasher. Thank you so much - she will love them and it saves buying more plastic from Amazon!
[14:49:54] Adrian Dale:

Hi folks Roger’s puzzle swap is obviously of interest so I’ll keep pictures of the puzzles on offer on file and assemble a library on the web for people to select from
[14:50:32] Resident117:

[18:44:30] Resident097:

Thanks Pal didnt mean to create you more work
[18:44:31] Resident039:

I certainly will let you know, was going to ask you today if you minded but felt that was somewhat taking the mick! But thank you
[18:46:05] Resident023:

Adrian - who pays for your petrol? I think it might be you!!

That’s not right.
[18:56:02] Adrian Dale:

Adrian: Hi Chris, remember the bit where I said I was privileged to retire early ... Our company pays all my petrol costs. It’s written into our company statutes that as a Director I am on permanent secondment to the Parish. The Village pays the company £3,600 a year for cutting the verges. This covers insurance, petrol costs, PPE and a nominal figure for labour. However, I am a pensioner and don’t draw a salary - so the excess costs associated with the emergency are all covered.

Thanks for your concern though!
[18:57:31] Resident097:

[18:57:56] Resident023:

OK - maybe a beer (or 2) when it’s all done! You might have a hang-over!!
[19:24:27] Resident033:

Candy I will let Adrian know when my flour from hovis arrives I bought 8 and only need 1 myself for this week he can maybe deliver for you and anyone else who can not get bread flour before my delivery which is expected on Saturday.
[19:49:52] Resident015:

Thanks Elaine that's great I am really missing making my own bread.
[19:52:20] Resident033:

No problem. I had to order a full box of 8 it was dispatched today and expected on Saturday. Will keep you posted
[19:53:21] Resident015:

[20:08:04] Resident033:

Ethan is in the wars today. Black eye 👁 from a swing
Battered shins from his bicycle, scrapped big toe from climbing the wall, and whilst banging a pan with a rolling pin for the NHS missed the pan and hit his foot. Bad day for Ethan. 😍
