British Pie Week at The Chequers

Soup Angels from The Chequers!

Local residents have requested a message is put out via this email messaging system thanking Jackie, Ian and staff from The Chequers for their recent surprise visits to those of maturing years. One resident sums it all up…….

‘There was a ring on the bell, we were surprised to find ‘the soup angels’ offering us 2 wonderful mugs of steaming hot stilton and leek soup, delicious, so amazing, now we know why we chose Charney Bassett!

Thank you so much’

Warning! Be careful about this caller

Message from a Denchworth resident

‘I had a phone call today from a well-spoken man to say that a team would be calling house to house in the next few days from ‘secure homes systems’. He mentioned a number of checks/installations they could do, from intruder alarms to carbon monoxide leakage. He even gave a phone number and a website I haven’t yet searched.

So I rang the police, they said ‘put it out on your neighbourhood watch or equivalent to be careful about callers since they cannot do this.’ (Besides which I’m on telephone preference, so their phone call was itself illegal). They may or may not be criminals, but they’re not very ethical.’
