We hope that you enjoy the display of Christmas lights in Amersham this year. Huge thanks to SparkX who worked in collaboration with the Town Council to create the display.

We hope you all agree the lights at Amersham on the Hill look fantastic. As for the Old Town, be sure to pop down and take a stroll through the Memorial Gardens.. (from Friday evening as the gardens are closed for renovations this evening).

Huge thanks also to Su Chases for providing the beautiful Christmas Tree outside the Market Hall (and also for providing the ‘girl power’ who assisted the depot team to decorate it).

Last month, on behalf of the Amersham in Bloom team, Steve Catanach was presented with a ‘thank you’ card and £150 from the residents of Black Acre Close.  

Humbled by their generosity, we would like to express our gratitude to the residents for their kind gift which will put to good use within the community.

Please bear with us while we refurbish the watering system in the Memorial Gardens. 

The irrigation system, first installed in Feb 2016, provides an efficient way to water the plants, reducing the requirement for surface watering. The system, comprising of underground reservoirs, forms part of our efforts to bolster our environmental responsibility. 

As part of the refurbishment we are going to add compost that has been processed by the eco green composter, mentioned in our previous post.

As part of our efforts to bolster our resource management, earlier in the year the Town Council purchased an Eco Green composting shredder/bio-mixer. This ‘green machine’ is able grind, mulch and mix biodegradable products, from grass mowings, roots and soil to tree loppings, pallets and waste paper, to produce a usable product within minutes.

The composter which decreases the volume of material by up to a third has reduced the need for traditional disposal, while the compost/mulch that it creates is used throughout the town. Examples include Willow Wood where it has been used to mulch newly planted trees and the Memorial Gardens where we have used it to add organic matter to the annual borders and sensory garden.

The attached photographs were taken at Hervines Park earlier this week.

Cllr. Mark Flys, Amersham Town Mayor, and Cllr. Andrew Seymour, Deputy Town Mayor, were joined by Lt Col Keith Edlin MBE and Bob Higgins of the Royal British Legion and Rev’d Canon Tim Harper for a small service in the Memorial Gardens on Sunday morning (8th November).

While both the Town Council and the Royal British Legion were saddened that a public service could not take place this year, a small service was held paying tribute to those who have lost their lives during armed conflicts.

Thank you to Will Watson, of the Amersham Band, for playing the Last Post.

Back in March, when we needed to reconsider our plans for Bloom 2020 due to Covid 19, we were unwavering in our desire to ensure that Amersham would remain colourful, while maintaining our efforts to bolster our environmental responsibility.

Thanks to the dedication of the Town Council and the volunteers, we are proud of our achievements over the past six months. These include the Old Amersham Sensory Garden, further verge tree plantings, the completion of the biggest bug hotel in Buckinghamshire, the creation of new beds, and thoroughfares that were as colourful (or even more so) as ever.

While some towns and communities suffered and struggled through no fault of their own, Amersham gleamed and continues to shine.

Yesterday, we were thrilled to receive recognition from the RHS and Thames and Chiltern in Bloom who presented the Council (electronically, of course!) with a certificate of recognition and a certificate for inspiring others in 2020. A certificate of recognition was also awarded to the group for the Memorial Gardens, a testament to the effort and dedication of all involved.

We are pleased to report that we have just completed the planting of 16 street trees in The Rise, off Station Road. The trees- flowering cherries and hawthorn- were funded by residents. Thank you to Buckinghamshire Council for approving the project and great work from the Town Council Depot chaps!
