North Cheriton memories…

We had an unexpected visit yesterday from Robert Blakebrough who used to live with his family at Overdale, Hardings Lane from 1978 until 2001. He was enroute from Devon and thought he would go down memory lane and visit North Cheriton. I am going to email him some very old photographs which I have of Overdale but wondered if any residents remember the Blakebrough family and would like to pass on any memories they have of the past. Let me know. Thanks. Sue Fitzmaurice

This message is sent on behalf of Superintendent Mike Prior.

2018 has been a challenging year for many and we head towards the end of year with a certain amount of uncertainly for the Country as a whole. Neighbourhood Watch has continued to bring communities together and this is vital in sustaining and making our communities stronger.

I am not sure what the weather forecasters have in store for us this Winter, but if last February was anything to go by there will be times when we need to lean on or support our neighbours. We need that spirit all year round and not just in times of strife, again Neighbourhood Watch comes to the fore. My Christmas plans are still “a work in progress” which is modern parlance for I have not round to doing anything yet! I hope your plans are more advanced and that you all have a Merry Christmas and a Peaceful 2019.

Thank you !


A big thank thank you to those who attended and helped in any way with the North Cheriton Christmas Craft Fayre on Saturday.  A grand total of just under £300 was raised, which will go towards the upkeep of your Village Hall.  Stall holders also reported an increase in sales this year – so altogether it was a very successful day.
