Lots of things have been going on in the village since the last issue hit the streets. Happy Birthday Bob!

Bob Whittaker was 80 on 15th August – belated happy birthday wishes to you, Bob!

He and Pam threw a wonderful party on Saturday, 16th August – “Sunday Lunch on Saturday”, in the Half Moon.

I’m sure everyone who was there will join me in thanking them.

A very good time was had by all, probably helped by the Pimm’s, mixed to Bob’s special lethal recipe.

It was a lovely birthday party – thank you. We’re looking forward to your 81st!

Alison Ansell Centenary of Britain Entering the First World War

Sheepwash commemorated this date by joining together for a service beside the War Memorial in the Square on Sunday 3rd August. The Revd Martin Goord and the Revd Martin Warren led the service, with several people reading moving extracts from letters, or from firsthand accounts of WWI experiences.

The names on the War Memorial were read out; there was silence; there were prayers. Five red poppies (WWI) and one pink poppy (WWII) were placed on the Memorial, to represent each of the fallen.

The hymns The Lord’s My Shepherd and I Vow to Thee, My Country were sung, accompanied on the keyboard, and a collection was taken up for the Royal British Legion.

Tea was served after the service in the Village Hall, where the information that has been gathered so far on the men named on the War Memorial was on display.

Welcome to Sheepwash! A hearty welcome to Frank McGowan, who has moved into 2 Bank Cottages in South Street.

We hope you’ll join in with all the village activities, and enjoy being part of our vibrant little community! (Why not join in with the Safari Supper – it’s a great way to get to know other Sheepwashers.)

We like to welcome all newcomers to the village with a mention in the Chronicle, so please let us know if you or one of your neighbours is new to the village. The usual grapevine is pretty good, but not infallible!
