Chalgrave News Issue 64 – Autumn 2019.

Issue 64, Autumn 2019.


The latest issue of the Chalgrave News (Issue 64, Autumn 2019) is now available to view here or browse past issues.


The long warm days of summer are now a distant memory and our thoughts are turning to winter and a season of warm fires and festivities. Time to reflect on recent events in our parish.

Sadly we report the death of Peter Kuys, a long standing resident of Chalgrave, active member of the community and a driving force behind the Chalgrave News in previous years. We also note the death at 101 years old of Mrs. Heeps, one of the longest residents of Chalgrave, who lived in The Lane until her late nineties. On a happier note we welcome the arrival of new resident Teddy, born to Emma and Lee at The Old Vicarage. Also congratulations to Carlie and Ed Alvares of the Queens Head on their wedding on 12th October at Chalgrave Church.

Development in and around the parish continues to grow and will have considerable impact on us. Some of the largest developments are north of Houghton Regis. See Peter Warburtons informative article on Page 14 for more information.

Although Chalgrave is a small parish there is always something going on so don’t forget to check the ‘Dates for your Diary’ for upcoming community events, such as ‘Carols by Candlelight’ at Chalgrave Church. If there are particular events, articles or issues you would like covered in the magazine contact the Chalgrave News team at

We are in little doubt that as you read this we will still be in the midst of political uncertainty over Brexit so we won’t go there. Instead why not get out into the Chalgrave countryside to enjoy the last of the autumn colour and cheer yourself up.e any articles or stories to contribute to the next edition, please send them to
