Chalgrave News Issue 49 – December 2015

Issue 49, December 2015.



The latest issue of the Chalgrave News (Issue 49, December 2015) is now available to view here, or browse past issues.

 In September, The Plough underwent a much needed refurbishment and the story of its make-over is told in this issue. But it’s not just The Plough that has been rejuvenated—the Great Pond in Tebworth has also undergone much needed remedial work. And it doesn’t stop there because the Sports Club Clubhouse has been raised to the ground in readiness for its replacement next year. See all the amazing changes for yourselves in the pictures featured in this edition.

You’ll also find in this issue the final instalment in Gillian Morrison’s poignant tale of her endeavours to discover more about her father, Fusilier George Mawson Holmes. And, as well, there is an account of the Sports Club’s riotous Race Night held in September. There are also illustrated articles about goings-on during All Hallows’ Eve and of the Queen’s Head’s fireworks extravaganza, held on the same night. Plus, to keep you entertained and informed, there are the usual contributions from our regular team of writers.

Finally, following the success of this year’s Chalgrave News Quiz, and to quieten the insistent and incessant clamouring from our readers, we will be repeating the experience next year. As many of you have busy social lives, we’re giving you plenty of warning—please keep the evening of Saturday, 16th April, free for this popular and prestigious occasion. Now is the time to start swatting in readiness.

The News team wishes all our readers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
