Tea on the Terrace

We are holding a fund-raising afternoon in Elaine's garden on Saturday, August 15th from 3.00 pm to 6.00 pm with tea and scones and opportunities to buy cakes, books and produce.

As well as replenishing our funds, it should be a pleasant social occasion. (We will just have to squash indoors if it rains!)

Everyone is welcome!  Ring 740784 or book here via email.  Tickets are £3 each and include a cream tea or coffee and cake, (numbers are limited).

Chiseldon Remembers WWI
Chiseldon Camp opened in August 1914 and many thousands of men and women were trained, hospitalised or demobilised there.  As well as the home nations, ANZACs, South Africans and Canadians were all at the camp.


CLHG would like to collect any stories or pictures relating to the camp or the men listed on the village's War Memorials, either for display in our museum or to be retained in our archives.  All original material will be returned to you after digitising.
