At 9pm last night 75 tea lights, commemorating the start of the 75th anniversary of the D-Day Landings and the Battle of Normandy, were placed in the Memorial Gardens. The lights flickered into the early hours.
On behalf of the Amersham and District Branch of the Royal British Legion, the Town Council would like to invite residents to a short service at midday on Thursday 6 June, to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
The 15-minute service which is to take place in the Memorial Gardens will comprise a blessing from Rev. Tim Barnard, the Royal Standards followed by bugle call of the last post.
Later that evening, at 9pm we shall be lighting 75 tea lights which will line the path to the war memorial. The tea lights will be left to flicker into the early hours.

Please support Amersham in Bloom by popping a green token into ‘our’ Community Matters slot at Little Waitrose in Amersham. The more green tokens…the more improvements we can make this summer…
Thanks once again to Little Waitrose & Partners for supporting the bloom initiative.
We hope that you’re enjoying the wonderful display of tulips that we planted beneath the street signs around town.
A huge thank you to all the residents that kindly sponsored the bulbs back in autumn and to Patrick Hudgell for the wonderful photographs.
Amersham working as a community!
Happy Easter from all at the Town Council.
If you haven’t had the opportunity to pop down to the Memorial Gardens this weekend then try to squeeze in a
visit as the tulips are looking absolutely spectacular at the moment.
You will not be disappointed!!
