As posted a couple of weekends ago, we enjoyed a really successful Great British Spring Clean Campaign with many families lending a hand. One such helper was Millie of St Georges CofE Infant School who came along with her family.


Millie has since written a letter to her teacher which highlights her shock at the amount of litter while questioning why people drop rubbish in the first instance. Great letter Millie and yes we must look after our wonderful world by putting the rubbish that we cannot recycle in the bin.

It is with sadness to report that the Union Flag that graced the Memorial Gardens in Old Amersham has been stolen. The photograph below was taken on VE Day back in May.

Amersham in Bloom as an initiative helps galvanise the Town Council to improve Amersham for the benefit or residents and visitors.

One such recent improvement is the revamp of the ‘quiet garden’ which is located beside St Mary’s Church in Old Amersham. In conjunction with the Town Council four volunteers – William, David, Gill and Jenny, have created a bed that is packed with interest and colour.

Even the bench (the other is in William’s workshop) was refurbished as part of enhancement!

Thanks to all our Great British September Clean HEROES!!

Following an extremely successful weekend cleaning up Amersham, ATC would like to say a huge thanks to everyone who turned out to help! With over 80 volunteers both old and young coming to lend a socially distanced hand, well over 100 bags of litter were collected and disposed of.

As a community we should be very proud of what we have achieved, and what a huge difference it makes to our wonderful town too. Well done and thank you to you all who took part. 

After the lifting of some government restrictions earlier in the Summer, a decision was made by Council to re-open our playgrounds and measures were introduced to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 under the detailed guidance from the HSE.  

Following completion of a COVID compliant Risk Assessment, posters were put up in the play areas showing a maximum number of visitors allowed at any one time, in addition to advice on safety precautions for parents/guardians.    

However, despite these efforts Barn Meadow playground has repeatedly exceeded the maximum number of visitors allowed at any one time. This has regrettably forced the Town Council to close the playground from 8:30am on Mondays until 4pm on Fridays, until further notice. 

This temporary closure is to protect the school children as it is paramount that the school remains open.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and we will be reviewing the situation next week.

Chiltern Community Forum’s survey and upcoming meeting. 

The Chiltern Community Forum exists principally to discuss and set neighbourhood policing priorities for the Chiltern district.  It does this via quarterly surveys and meetings between residents and the Thames Valley Police Neighbourhood Policing team.  Over more than two years, it has become a valued platform for Chiltern’s Neighbourhood Police team to communicate with local residents.

The survey will remain open until midnight on Sunday (20th), and an online Zoom meeting will be held with Thames Valley Police next Wednesday.

The meeting will be at 6.30pm on Wednesday 23rd September.  All are welcome to attend the Zoom meeting. Please include an e-mail address in your survey response so that a meeting link can be sent to you. Alternatively, you can email to request the link at contact@chilterncommunityforum.org
 
Inspector Richard Vine will update on policing over the past 3 months, and other matters. They will also be joined by Thames Valley Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Barber.  Their hope is to have a valuable, wide ranging discussion on issues of policing and community safety.

The very brief quarterly survey, inviting residents to vote and comment on their main concerns, can be accessed online at:
