Police Security Session

For the benefit of residents concerned about the recent uptick in local petty crime Cllr Finlay has arranged for the police to visit us to give their current views and advice. The session will be in the Coach House at Chilworth Manor on Monday, 20th March at 7.30pm.  Several relevant companies have promised to attend so come along and see how to improve your security.

Better than Streetlife?

Today, Streetlife announced it had merged with Nextdoor. Several Chilworth residents use Streetlife, but there’s a problem. To try for a ‘critical mass’ Streetlife lumps us in with people from miles away, so many of the topics aired have no relevance.  Nextdoor, on the other hand looks to be much better thought out.  “Nextdoor Chilworth” is currently being piloted, and only needs a few more members to become permanent.  Because it allows geographic fine tuning, it should be a real asset for communication within the village.  Take a look, and sign up here.  There’s also a new service on this, the Chilworth website, that you may like to try although it may prove shortlived if Nextdoor lives up to its early promise.

Launch of Chilworth Moviola

TraitorBased on the results from our earlier survey of preferences, Chilworth Moviola is kicking off with its first two dates, one on a weekend and the other a weeknight. On Saturday, 1st October, our inaugural movie is “Our Kind of Traitor”, a John Le Carre novel brought the screen by Susanna White and starring Damian Lewis.

Find further details on the Chilworth Moviola Programme page, including how to buy or reserve tickets at just £5 each. The idea is to make this a comfortable evening out and so, while you may elect not to pay online, payment at the door will only be possible with a reserved ticket.
