Chalgrave News Issue 62 – Spring 2019.

Issue 62, Spring 2019.


The latest issue of the Chalgrave News (Issue 62, Spring 2019) is now available to view here or browse past issues.

We start this editorial with the very sad news of the death of Lyn Green on Monday 1 April. Lyn has been a huge part of our village and was very well known to almost everyone in Tebworth and Wingfield. Her contribution to our parish has been invaluable and she had a natural ability to bring people together, always welcoming and introducing new comers. A generation of children have wonderful memories of her running the post office and buying sweets after school. Our thoughts are with Ken and all the family.

Spring has tempted us with a few nice days and the snowdrops were amazing this year. The birds are a bit confused, to nest or not to nest? The dawn chorus is building up now and it is wonderful to stand outside in the early morning and just listen. Frost on the ground every morning this week as we write this, will have put a temporary stop to their nest building .

Still the Brexit debacle goes on and we all wonder what will become of our politicians and the way our politics will appear after all this is over. News that Central Beds are planning a new road to link the A6 with Junction 11A has been announced this week. The road will be 2.75 miles long providing a bypass for Luton on the north side and will have a mixture of single and double lanes with a speed limit of 50mph. If approved work could start in 2020. This will no doubt bring more development for houses and industrial estates along the way. More on page 38.

Finally, we have included a fitting tribute and reflection by Mark Edwynn on the life of his father Colin who died towards the end of last year. What a guy !
