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

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!)

The Chiddingfold Tipteerers will again


The St George's Day Play

Adedum to Story Below !
Recived Thursday April 12, 2007

Having had it pointed out that Monday nights are not likely to be well attended !
It makes most sense to perform to an audience that will be present, so we've plumped for..........
performance Sunday afternoon, 2.30pm/3pm,22nd April 2007 same venue

Happily, it is getting more difficult not to notice the significance of 23rd April!

There are parades and festivities around the county to mark our patron saint’s day and to celebrate our nationality and Englishness. (We seem to be catching up with the Scots, Irish and Welsh in this respect!)

Again, The Crown P.H. will host the company. Monday evening visitors will, I hope, be quite pleased to witness the show! If all goes well, the performance will be at around 9pm, a tune or two after this brief theatre, to further entertain, and a pleasant evening will be had by all!

Not at all unusual for an incumbent Rector to become a parent -
but surely a ‘first’ for a Rector to give birth?

Rev’d Sarah Brough of St Mary’s Church, Chiddingfold became a mother to a fine baby boy on 13th December.
To wish her good health prior to the birth and in celebration of the happy event, much ringing of the Church bells took place at Chiddingfold!     More
