On Friday 27, the Town Mayor, Councillor Mark Roberts, was delighted to attend the closing ceremonies of the Kings Church Amersham “On Your Marks” holiday club and meet some of the children, parents and volunteers.

KCA put on a holiday club every year, and despite the challenges this year, they were able to entertain nearly 200 children from the local community for a week of fun, laughter and activities.  During the visit they roped the Mayor into playing the part of a mayor in the final episode of the daily comedy drama that was part of the week’s entertainment.

It was great to see the efforts of volunteers creating such happy, joyful, exuberance in our community, supporting so many families.

You may recall that back in the spring we joined forces with other community groups, including Sustainable Amersham, Amersham Rotate- a flexible way to make a difference and Amersham Community Board to launch an initiative to get school children understanding the need for pollinators.
 
As part of this project, we distributed wildflower seeds to all children in years 3 to 6, inviting them to sow small patches or pots within their gardens.
 
Over the past month we have received some of the wonderful photographs such as the one below which shows Hanish Gogineni (Elangeni School) and his colourful display.
 
If your child has a display to match Hanish’s then please send us your photographs (stevec@amersham-tc.gov.uk).
