Join us to roar on the amazing Lionesses this Sunday

It is often said that the amazing lionesses are by far the stronger and faster of their species. In fact female lions, called lionesses, are actually stronger runners and better hunters than male lions are! Male lions lie around a lot, and get the females to do all the work for them.

So no change there then!

This Sunday at 5pm eleven of the strongest lionesses take to the turf at Wembley. Their job to hunt down the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 Final when they take on Germany.

And we will be showing the game live here at The Bell in Chearsley.

Join us for a fabulous afternoon with pre-match community singing led by Furry and watch as the game unwinds. We will be having complimentary half time nibbles (but not, as some suggested, a community bath!)

So come along and join us girls and let’s show the Lions that we can go one better than they did last year.

Oh and don’t forget to wear your match kit ladies – if you ask your men, they probably have some languishing from last year 😉

Our beautiful new patio area is really upfront

So here at the Bell in Chearsley we are never sitting still and we wanted to install a new patio area outside at the front of the pub to add to our existing one at the back.

So we got the builders in… Again!

Digging out for the new patio
Building work commences

And yes we probably did pick the hottest days of the year to do the work!

New Patio Flagged
Flagged Out

So here we are – almost finished, the sleeper walls are in place and the flags are (almost) laid, Now I need to work out how to use the area.

New Patio Area

And here it is, a brand new seating area at the front of the pub with lovely views over the village green. Come on down and enjoy it – if you haven’t already.

Don’t miss out. Join Alana for her amazing Brush Party

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

Chearsley has a great weekend lined up for you.
I’m sure you are all aware by now that there is an extra special bank holiday weekend between 2nd & 5th June and here in Chearsley we are looking to make it a never to be forgotten weekend as we celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of our beloved Queen.
So much so that I am planning on letting her out of the loo for the weekend!

Chearsley’s Jubilee organising committee have got a fantastic series of events for all ages, starting with a village candlelit procession as we move from the Village Green down to the church to witness the lighting of our beacon to start the festivities.

Throughout the weekend, here in The Bell we will be running a Beer Festival with a fantastic selection of specialist beers on sale. And, on Saturday evening, we are holding a Platinum Party here and on the Green with live music, a pig roast and lots more.
Sunday rounds off the weekend when we hold The Bell’s Big Breakfast between 10am and noon (last orders for breakfast are 11:30am)
So do make sure you save the weekend a be involved in what is going to be an unforgettable weekend.
