Tesco – three years on . . .

With the news that Tesco is struggling to find new avenues for growth on home turf and is scaling back some of its international plans, especially in a recession-scarred Europe, time perhaps to reflect on the old Chiltern Jaguar garage at the top of the High Street?

Vicar Tim Marshall, passed away October 2010.

Saddened to announce the passing of friend Tim Fidler in the early hours of April 6th 2013 in Cyprus.

Tim had a heart attack after a party for his wife’s birthday and wedding anniversary in their home in northern Cyprus.

He was flown home today where he is met by  family Sue, sons Ian and Paul and brother Chris, and sister Mel.

Tim moved from Bovingdon some 6 years ago not long after his elder brother Stan died in a motorcycle accident.

Tim and Sue bought a house there and settled, Tim going on to become a local golf champion.

Sue is expected to return to Cyprus after the funeral  which is provisionally set for April 22nd at Amersham.

Local Gold Champion Tim

Tim was 58 years old.

Give him a good welcome Stan!

Learn to Drift

Drifting is something many aspire to be able to do however they are not sure where to start, but you can try at Bovingdon Airfield.

Learn2Drift  hold Drift days aimed at different skill levels, so you can learn with people of similar levels of skills. They use a mix of theory including a safety and technique briefing, and practical exercises to help you develop the skills required to control a car going sideways. – Sounds like Bovingdon High Street on a Saturday night!

Open to the public (booking required) as well as  private events for groups and companies.
