Katharine Skillen organized another successful Art Exhibition in the Village Hall last weekend. Our thanks go to Katharine and her group of volunteers for making such an event possible.

Graham Skillen created an interesting display on local history with an informative account of the former windmill in the village. There was a fascinating ancient map of North Cheriton and archives dating back to 1840 from which you could have fun discovering the occupants of your house at that time!

Harvest Lunch

Nearly sixty residents enjoyed a wonderful Harvest Lunch on Sunday after the Harvest Festival Service in Church.

Hearty Autumnal Casseroles and Warming Puds were much appreciated by everyone and we also formally welcomed Tristram’s lovely new wife, Angela, to her first North Cheriton Harvest Festival and Lunch.

The opportunity was also taken to wish Judy Bell luck in her new home – she assured us that she would be a frequent visitor!!

Libby was missed, but everything came together and the tables looked fabulous!

The children contributed as usual, with their edible ciabatta harvest mice and decorated poem cards, all lovingly made during a creative afternoon at Fiona De Pelet’s.
