Fire at the Chiddingfold Surgery


The Friends of Chiddingfold Surgery would like to extend their heartfelt thanks on behalf of all the Doctors and Staff for all the generous donations received for the Fire Appeal following the terrible fire in January at the surgery.

We have been able to fund the immediate purchase of a spirometer, 2 ambulatory blood pressure monitors and a defibrillator which are already in use at the new temporary home for the surgery at Milford Hospital. Further purchases will be made shortly as the doctors prioritise which of the equipment previously provided by FCS should be replaced immediately before the insurance claim is settled.
We all know that there is an element of uncertainty regarding the settlement of insurance claims and we fully expect that the Surgery will not receive payment in full for the entire extent of its claim when it is finally made. FCS is using the funds from the Fire Appeal to plug this gap now.
Should any funds remain after the insurance monies are received there will always be more equipment to be funded which will keep our surgery at the forefront of providing the first class service we have all become used to.

Criminals Targeting People With Universal Credit Scam

Action Fraud has received 63 reports about a scam in which fraudsters target people with offers of “low cost” loans or “free” government grants. What the victims aren’t told is that the money they’ll receive is actually an advance payment for Universal Credit. The criminals use the personal information they’ve obtain under false pretences to make an application in the victim’s name. After the fraudsters have taken their “fee” from the advance payment, the victim is then left to pay back the total amount once their repayments begin.

Winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland arrives in Swinging London to perform a five-week sold-out run at The Talk of the Town. It is 30 years since she shot to global stardom in The Wizard of Oz, but if her voice has weakened, its dramatic intensity has only grown.
As she prepares for the show, battles with management, charms musicians and reminisces with friends and adoring fans, her wit and warmth shine through. Even her dreams of love seem undimmed as she embarks on a whirlwind romance with Mickey Deans, her soon-to-be fifth husband.
Featuring some of her best-known songs, the film celebrates the voice, the capacity for love, and the sheer pizzazz of "the world's greatest entertainer." Starring Renée Zellweger, Jessie Buckley, Rufus Sewell and Michael Gambon

Adult Ticket Price £6
Child Ticket Price £3

Career con artist Roy Courtnay (Ian McKellen) can hardly believe his luck when he meets well-to-do widow Betty McLeish (Helen Mirren) online. As Betty opens her life and home to him, Roy is surprised to find himself caring about her, turning what should be a cut-and-dry swindle into the most treacherous tightrope walk of his life. What should have been a simple swindle escalates into a cat-and-mouse game with the ultimate stakes. Also starring Russell Tovey, Jim Carter and Mark Lewis Jones.

The Goldfinch   Friday, March 20th 8:00 pm Cert 15

Theodore Decker (Ansel Elgort) was 13 years old when his mother was killed in a bombing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The tragedy changes the course of his life, sending him on a stirring odyssey of grief and guilt, reinvention and redemption, and even love. Through it all, he holds on to one tangible piece of hope from that terrible day -- a painting of a tiny bird chained to its perch. Beautifully film and adapted from the Pulitzer Prize Winning Novel. Starring Nicole Kidman, Sarah Paulson, Luke Wilson, Finn Wolfhard, Aneurin Barnard and Jeffrey Wright.

I've written many pieces in our Parish magazine about our bells;
at St Mary's Chiddingfold John.

By now I hope you appreciate that we have a very special legacy in these bells, and I do hope that the village is a much better place for having them. (It would be a very sad thing to NOT have them surely!)

However, I, and the other bell ringers, are mindful that our ringing is intrusive, (loud).
Despite our best efforts, there are occasions when the music is not at it's best, particularly when practice and learners are involved! Whilst we have some sound-control, the sound of the bells does reach parts that other music does not!

So I am asking the village, and anyone else affected, to let me know your views - More
