Starting this Friday, the car park at Hervines Park will be closed from 8.30pm every night.
Please ensure that if you use this car park that your vehicle is moved before the gate is locked. …

Regrettably, we have had to take this decision following a huge rise in anti-social behaviour over the past three months. As many of you will be aware, the bug hotel was burnt last week (see the Bucks Free Press newspaper article below). However, this is just one of many recent incidents.

The Town Council is working in partnership with the local neighborhood policing team to combat anti-social behaviour in and around the park.

The car park will be open at 7.30am in the morning.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter

The Town Council installed a new addition to Sycamore Corner on Wednesday.

130 years or so after the development of Amersham on-the-Hill we finally have a ‘Town Sign’.

The sign, a Town Council initiative, incorporates many modern features of Amersham-on-the-Hill, including a Metropolitan Line train, St Michael’s Church, Amersham Free Church, red kites and of course beech trees….

We would like to thank Michelle Catanach and Colin Pells for working in association with Town Council to create the original concept, artwork and computer image. Similar thanks to Andy Honour for converting this image into a computer-aided design and usable file which was used to produce the sign. Such talent!

We would also like to thank the Amersham and District Residents Association for helping to fund the sign and Buckinghamshire Council for allowing the sign to be installed on the verge.


We are pleased to announce that Barn Meadow Children’s Play Area and Hervines Park Children’s Play Area will be reopening from Saturday 4 July onwards. We request anyone using the play areas to maintain strict social distancing and good hygiene practice.

Please keep your children safe when using the facilities and do not enter the play area if the maximum number of users has been reached. If this is the case, please return later in the day.

Please read and take notice of the signage that has been erected in both play areas, as this is for your own safety.

All users should be aware of the risks in using a playground and take extra care and responsibility for sanitising and social distancing.

We are pleased to announce that the new facilities at King George V Playing Field, which includes the wooden play equipment, outdoor gym and skatepark, shall be open from midday on Friday 10th July. Please do no attempt to use these play facilities until this date.

It is fantastic to see that the open spaces throughout Amersham are being used by so many residents at the moment, most notably when the weather is hot.

Unfortunately more visitors we have seen a 300% increase in litter. Please be considerate and do not leave litter piled up against bins when they are full.

Rest assured that the Town Council is emptying the bins as frequently as permits but your help would be appreciated to ensure that we keep on top of this unseasonal demand.

A replacement dog bin has been ordered for car park at Hervines Park.

Many of you will have noticed that we have been refreshing the tubs and planters throughout Amersham. Along with the newly installed hanging baskets they have added sparkle and colour to our town.

Rest assured that whilst we are unable to utilise the help of the volunteers (in the main thoroughfares and Memorial Gardens due to social distancing restrictions), the Town Council bloom team remain committed and are working hard to ensure that Amersham remains beautiful.

As you can imagine we must water the new plants frequently, so if you live locally and fancy lending a hand by tipping a watering or two into tubs, then your efforts will be much appreciated.
