Alton Parish village website

This is the Website of Alton Parish Council, comprising the three villages of Alton Barnes, Alton Priors and Honeystreet.   This website last updated 12 July 2019 


On Friday the 19th of July 

TWO CHINOOK HELICOPTERS are going to lift numerous tonnes of fresh chalk up to the ALTON WHITE HORSE.

This is the first time in 10 YEARS that this  landmark is getting a major facelift.

It is expected that the Chinooks will operate for about two hours, before refuelling and departing for home.

It is hoped that VOLUNTEERS will spend an hour or so in the afternoon, together with Year 6 children from Woodborough School, to help spread the chalk.

We hope to see you there!

Get ready to sing and dance, laugh and love all over again! Past and present intertwine as a pregnant Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) is busy re-launching her mother’s taverna while husband Sky is away in New York.  Flashbacks transport us back in time to learn how the Dynamos came into being and how Donna (Lily James) met Sophie’s three putative fathers.
“It’s down to cannily cast diva Cher, playing Sophie’s maternal grandmother Ruby Sheridan, to really raise the roof as she does singing Fernando in duet with her lost love (played by Andy Garcia). The moment white-wigged Cher steps out of her helicopter on the jetty in that sparkling, sun-drenched bay, she owns the movie hook, line and sinker and virtually nothing else exists. Or at least until Meryl Streep appears singing My Love, My Life in that famous cliff-top church and instantly reduces the audience to floods of tears. In a replica of The Winner Takes It All showstopper in Mamma Mia!, it’s a stunningly bravura moment that will live long in the memory.”  Radio Times
