I recently received a postcard from an elderly lady who used to live in the village. Due to ill health she recently moved to live with her family. Finishing her lovely note were the words “they don’t even have a village shop here!”.
This got me thinking about how lucky we are in Chilbolton and Wherwell. Not only do we have a village shop (an outstanding one, in my opinion, but I may be a little biased), but we have two exceptional pubs, a school and even a hairdressers. Visitors often comment on how we could live in the ‘perfect’ village.
Thank you Rosemary Morton for reminding me.
