NEW AMERICAN DINER NOW OPEN!
An authentic taste of America has landed in your neighbourhood.
Taking inspiration from the fun and fearlessness of the 1950s, when food ruled and cars were all the rage, Chariots and Cherry Pie combines a gourmet dining experience with a deluxe personalized car wash service. Its the only place where you can get your wheels shined, while you dine and unwind over a gourmet diner meal.

The first Cherry Pie Diner will be located at the old Little Chef site on the A420 at Buckland. From June 2014 customers can enjoy a delicious all day breakfast including sweet waffles, pancakes, steak and eggs and breakfast skillets.

Whilst redevelopment takes place on site, the Chariots and Cherry Pie team will be offering a taste of whats to come from a temporary roadside 1950s style Cherry Pie Mobile Diner. Customers will be able to tuck in to a sample diner menu from March through May before the mobile diner hits the roads and appears at some of the UKs biggest and best summer events.

A second Chariots and Cherry Pie is due to open in Grove in Autumn 2014. It will feature a diner and car spa followed by a boutique Cherry Pie Motel in 2015.

WELL BE GIVING ONE LUCKY LONGWORTH FAMILY (UP TO 4 PEOPLE) A FREE MEAL DURING APRIL. TO BE IN WITH A CHANCE OF WINNING, ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTION:

Who was the first President of the USA?

Email your answer to: tellmemore@chariotsandcherrypie.co.uk

KBDG Presents The O'Connor Girls
The O'Connor story takes place in 1997 over the Christmas holiday. Tom O'Connor has passed away, and his wife (Sarah) and children (Liz, Martha and Matt) have reunited to excavate his mountain of personal effects. As the family sifts through boxes of papers and bags of clothing, clues to the quiet patriarch's life are discovered, prompting the usual heated arguments and some unusual revelations. As the story of Tom and Sarah's marriage unfolds, the children are forced to reconsider their long-held opinions of their parents. In the midst of this emotional afternoon, a long-lost neighbour pays an unexpected visit. Also on the agenda for this day of upheaval is Catholicism, World War II, old films, old love, new love, oversleeping, overdrinking, and large purple hats.

Where: Kingston Bagpuize with Southmoor Village Hall. Draycott Road, Kingston Bagpuize with Southmoor

Tickets: 8 each. Available on-line from http://www.wegottickets.com/KingstonBagpuizeDramaGroup or telephone 01865 821812

RIDGE family 1840's - Longworth Lodge
Eliza RIDGE born abt 1838. Am trying to locate her birth, or family. Family legend has it that her father managed an estate in Berkshire. I assume that she came from Longworth, as her youngest son was named Longworth Ridge YELVERTON. Eliza came to Wellington, NZ in 1855, married Augustus YELVERTON and never returned to UK.
The closest I've come to finding her is the 1841 Census which appears to show her mother as an Ag Lab at Longworth Lodge. I suspect she may have been orphaned. If anyone can help with looking up a Parish record, or birth reg, or anything else, I would be most grateful. [P.S. I live in NZ] Thanks, Deb

JOB VACANCY - LONGWORTH PARISH CLERK
After 14 years as Parish Clerk, and in my 82nd year of life, I feel it is about time I handed over to someone a little younger.
The job takes some five hours a week (any five hours you like) and pays a national rate. It will not make you rich, but it will pay for the vegetables. All it calls for is some basic arithmetic for the accounts, some PC knowledge for the minutes, and an ability to communicate intelligibly. The rest is dependent on how large a part you wish to play in local affairs.
Training is available. Being a Longworth resident is desirable, but not essential.
Call me for more. 01865 820052
