On Tuesday, we were pleased to trim the overgrown hedge that has been ‘hiding’ the Martyrs’ Memorial for some time. The memorial, which was built in 1931 to commemorate the Martyrs who were burnt at the stake, is owned and maintained by the Protestant Alliance. The memorial can be approached from the footpath leading from St. Mary’s Church or from a footpath off Station Road.

News from The Old Amersham Business Association –  

A reminder that the Christmas Market will be taking place tomorrow and there are two remaining free parking dates. 

 

Free parking

Saturday 19 December

Thursday 24 December (Christmas Eve)

 

Christmas Market (underneath Market Hall)

Saturday 19 December

The local stalls will include Bucks Fish (wet fish and shellfish), No2 Pound Street (British cheese selection), Maxine’s Patisserie (Christmas cakes, bakes and treats) and Hector Hartley (goodies for your canine friends).

 

With free parking on 19 and 24 December and festive music and singing from local groups including Amersham Band, Chalfont Wind Band and the Chiltern Singers, this will bring some added enjoy to the Old Amersham Christmas shopping experience.

While you could be mistaken for thinking that Christmas had come early, we would like to thank Barnett Waddingham for kindly joining forces with Amersham Town Council to sponsor an assortment of gardening tools which were presented to Stony Dean School this week.

The selection includes rakes, secateurs, shears, trowels, bypass loppers and much much more.

As we all know a group of Stony Dean pupils (and teachers- thanks Gareth, Derek and James) help out with tasks in Amersham on a weekly basis and these tools are a welcome and generous gift. Thanks once again to Barnett Waddingham, a perennial supporter of the Town Council and Amersham in Bloom.

The chaps from Stony Dean School didn’t waste anytime before they tested out the new tools, filling two bulk bags with leaves.
