ST MARY’S CHURCH CHILDREY
IS DELIGHTED TO ANNOUNCE
WILL BE GIVING A WONDERFUL
FOLK CONCERT AT THE CHURCH ON
FRIDAY 17th SEPTEMBER
TICKETS £14 TO INCLUDE INTERVAL
REFRESHMENTS AND CAN BE OBTAINED
FROM CHILDREY VILLAGE STORES
A villager has suggested this for Childrey and we are attempting to gauge the view of residents. You may have seen the old red phone boxes in Sparsholt and Bishopstone that have been changed into Libraries. These red phone boxes were purchased from BT for just £1 in the era when they were being decommissioned. Unfortunately, Childrey does not currently have a red phone box and so the funding of the actual red phone box, concrete base, installation, electricity and maintenance costs would all have to be found from the village precept which is included in your council tax. We estimate that the cost per household would initially increase the precept portion of your council tax by approx. 40% unless sufficient funds are donated. Before undergoing feasibility assessments, we would like to know:
Q1. Would you use it?
Q2. How many times per month?
Q3. Would you bring books?
Q4. Would you borrow books?
Q5. Where do you currently get your books from?………………….

It is with great sadness that yesterday we heard of the death of HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. This sadness, we are sure, is shared by many of you who will want to remember and recognise the service of our longest serving Prince Consort. We cannot open a book of condolences because of COVID-19 rules, but an online book has been made available by Buckingham Palace and can be reached here https://www.royal.uk . Our thoughts and prayers are with Her Majesty The Queen and her family at this time. Childrey PC.
The next ordinary Childrey Parish Council meeting will be held on Monday 26th April 2021 via zoom starting at 7.30pm and the Annual Parish Meeting and the Annual Meeting of Childrey Parish Council will be held on Monday 17th May in Childrey Village Hall starting at 7.30pm.
