To create awareness of Rotary’s contribution towards a polio-free world, the Town Council joined forces with Rotary in Amersham and Stony Dean School to plant 8,000 purple crocus corms on the verge beside the roundabout at the Boot & Slipper.


Purple flowering crocus were chosen by Rotary to signify the purple dye painted on children’s pinkie fingers when immunised with the polio vaccine.

Following the Britain in Bloom award for working with young people and children we were delighted to welcome the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) to Amersham earlier this week.

The RHS team filmed footage for promotional video which will be used nationally to encourage more towns to engage with their younger residents.
Three of the ‘Design a Flowerbed Competition Winners’ were filmed re-planting two of the signature flowerbeds at the Boot and Slipper roundabout, while pupils from St Mary’s CofE Primary School were then filmed planting bluebell bulbs at Pondwicks Community Orchard and Nature Area.

Heritage Day 2019

Following the summer band concerts, the Town Council team put all efforts into producing the jewel in the crown, Amersham Heritage Day.

Old Amersham was the place to be on 8th September with so many exciting attractions on offer including children’s funfair, classic car display, vintage farmers market, birds of prey display, heritage bus journeys, medieval re-enactments, live entertainment and so much more!

We are overwhelmed by the positive response received from the public as well as the demonstrators and stall holders alike. The day was busier than ever and the weather was idyllic. Thank you to all those who attended and were able to be a part of such a fantastic community event.

The date for Amersham Heritage Day 2020 will be announced very soon!

Sunday 8 September 2019 – Amersham Heritage Day

With just a few days until the ‘big day’ we thought it was about time we published the schedule of events for next Sunday’s Heritage Day in Old Amersham.

With live music, farmers market stalls, classic cars, steam engines, Morris Dancing, Irish Dancing, a marching band and a children’s area there is something for everyone. Be sure to join us (from 11.30am).

You can download a high resolution Heritage Day map here.

Please leave you car at home.

Whilst the public car park and Barn Meadow are both available for parking on Heritage Day (from 7.30am), we would like to encourage you to catch a heritage bus from Amersham on the Hill (Chesham, Little Chalfont or Chesham Bois), rather than driving to Old Amersham. The buses, running up to every five minutes from Amersham Station are free and will take you straight to the action. Please click here for a bus timetable.
