Finally, returning to Elmdon, c8.45pm, full of bonhomie and festive cheer!

Our thanks to the Landlords/ladies of our village pubs, for graciously hosting the carollers.

Please meet at Chrishall Church at 8.30am to leave at 9am.  Children are very welcome to join the whole walk but if it is a bit too far for them, they are encouraged to join in at Elmdon to walk the last leg to Chrishall for tea!

Parish Charity News





Romsey Mill Half Marathon




I am currently a pre schoolteacher, moving to become a teaching assistant in September so this charity is one that is close to my heart. Everyday I see the importance of nurturing and good education from day one. This is not just in terms of teaching 1,2,3 and A, B, C but more importantly the desire to be a good citizen and always try your best to enhance society.


If you would like to donate, any amount would be so greatly appreciated, please visit the page mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/minniefolland1
to give directly to the charity through the parish scheme.
