In conjunction with Amersham Action Group, the Town Council arranged a public meeting in Old Amersham on 11 February where HS2 and their contractors presented their plans to nearly 200 residents for junction improvements at Whielden Lane/A404, where the Chiltern tunnel vent shaft will be built, as well as plans for the future public engagement on the vent shaft head house design. More information is available on the HS2 website, but you can click here to view the slide presentations from that meeting.

Further consultation will be held later in the year, with a public exhibition on the vent shaft head house design, so please keep an eye on the Town Council website and local notice boards for further information, or check out the HS2 Amersham Action Group website at http://www.hs2amersham.org.uk/

A huge thank you to all involved!

We are pleased to report that over 400 residents, including many families, joined our efforts to plant 1km of trees in Willow Wood, behind Stanley Hill Cemetery, last weekend. Over the two days, we planted almost 400 native trees which included varieties such as beech, cherry and hornbeam.

The community plant formed part of the Town Councils final push to complete a legacy project to plant 6000 trees planted at Willow Wood.
Following the community plant, the Town Council joined forces with pupils from with Stony Dean School and Dr Challoner’s Grammar School to plant an additional 70 trees, creating a section of wood which we have unofficially titled ‘Stony Dean Wood’.

A huge thank you to everyone involved in the tree plant- from the Town Council Depot team who prepared the site to the bloom volunteers, Stony Dean School, Dr Challoner’s Grammar School and most importantly the many members of the public that supported our efforts. It was perhaps our biggest community event yet!

Join the last Community Tree Plant at Willow Wood – Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th January 2020, 10:00-12:00 hrs.

The trees have now arrived, they’re ready to be planted, and the weather forecast looks good! All are welcome to join us for the last hurrah and do your bit for the environment. All we ask is that you bring a fork with you.

To coincide with the Woodland Trust tree planting mission as part of Big Climate Fightback, we are launching our community tree-planting campaign to encourage 600 residents all ages and walks of life to plant one tree – a total of 1km – beside Willow Wood. This will complete our legacy project which has seen 5,000 trees planted in Willow Wood in the last seven years.

Access to Willow Wood, very much a hidden gem in Amersham, is via Stanley Hill Cemetery or by accessing the public footpath beside the cemetery entrance gate, just past the college in Stanley Hill.

We are very pleased to announce the winner of the best dressed front door competition. Congratulations to Sundari Ferris of Whielden Street!

The judges found it really difficult to choose just one winner from the selection of beautiful and creative wreaths that they saw on so many residents’ doors and would like to thank everyone who took part in helping make Old Amersham more festive and colourful over the Christmas period.

The competition was kindly sponsored by the Amersham Society and Amersham in Bloom.
