Well done Chestnut Lane School.... ...

Town Mayor Mark Vivis took time out from his busy schedule to present a number of certificates to Chestnut Lane School at their 'well done' assembly this morning.

He presented the school with their GOLD award certificate and prize as winners of last year's Amersham in Bloom Commonwealth Planter Competition. Mrs Tyler and two pupils received a Highly Commended Regional Bloom award, on behalf of the school, in the Mark Mattock Cup, awarded to them by the Regional RHS Judges - Norman Parker and Anne Kempson - following their visit last summer.

The final presentation of a certificate and prize was to Amber Bolton as one of the four winners of the Design a Flowerbed Competition that was recently judged.

Well done to Chestnut Lane School- a great assembly- and thanks once again to Mark Vivis.
