Jolly Good Show

The great thing about being the Editor is that I can put into the newsletter whatever I want. As such, I thought I might share with the readers a once in a lifetime experience that not many people might ever get to do and also for those that may have done this in the line of duty.

I was very lucky to be given a Spitfire flight for Christmas by my wife Caroline and I have put together a 3 & 1/2 minute video of my experience and you can view it from this link or click the picture. Photo taken by Caroline from the Cessna 172 we caught up! 

With the above in mind the theme for this year's Chalfont St. Giles Village Show  is 'Transport Through The Ages'. Put the date in your diary!

Competition entry is now open for the September 7th Show.

Chalfont St Giles resident, Robert Skinner has recently retired from the pharmaceutical industry. He has always enjoyed sports, especially football, tennis and running and has completed 8 marathons.  However, he has never been involved with, interested in or even thought about trekking up mountains, until an old University friend gathered a small group together and persuaded them to hike to Everest base camp!

This evening he will share with you his thoughts and experiences, together with some photographs, of his recent trek to Everest Base Camp in April 2019 with World Expeditions.

Join us for a day of celebration for our local armed forces community

Tickets are going fast but there is still time to get yours and join us for a day of celebration and appreciation for our local Buckinghamshire armed forces community.

Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes Armed Forces Day takes place at Booker Air Park in High Wycombe on Saturday 29 June, from 12 noon. The day is packed with live entertainment, music and attractions including a two hour long air display.

The event is open to the general public but its main aim is to give our local armed forces a day to relax and enjoy with their families and for the public to come along in support to show their thanks and appreciation for everything our armed forces do and have done for us. It forms part of a national programme of events taking place around the country.

This year's event is in a new venue and for the first time is also completely free but you must still register online for tickets. To book tickets

We still need volunteers to help on the day. If you can spare a couple of hours to help with tasks such as hospitality, car parking, selling programmes and backstage support, we would love to hear from you. Anyone aged over 14 can volunteer but under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. In return for helping out you will receive a free limited edition t-shirt and refreshments.
