Carrol Morris – Owner of Carrols Hardware Shop – Celebrates Longest “One Woman” Business in Amersham – 1st February

Mon, 01/13/2020 - 12:09

Carrol Morris, who owns Carrols Hardware Shop in Hill Avenue, celebrates the longest “One Woman” business in the Town on the 1st February 2020.

She claims that she is the longest “One Woman” business in the Town, owning the store she has personally opened almost every morning, 365 days a year at around 7.30am since 1985, including Christmas Day.  She rarely takes a day off work!  She employs a small staff to help her run the store, which has only ever closed one day in the mid 90’s when thieves broke into her van and stole her bag which contained the shop keys.

The shop sells a huge range of everyday items and one can often find that one small thing you’ve been looking for.  Individual small items can be purchased rather than multi-packs as is often the case in the larger stores.  She says, “we can give the personal help and advice people are frequently looking for”.

During her time in business she has been nominated for various business awards and the most recent being in 2016 when she won the Amersham Town Council Business of the Year Award.

A visit to ‘Carols’ will be well “worthwhile” especially during the coming month of February where many extra promotional items will be on offer.

Thu, 10/24/2019 - 14:19

The players of The Chiltern Camerata make a welcome return to the Amersham Free
Church for the first in its 2019/20 season of concerts.

Piazzolla and Rautavaara

Brahms is represented by his ever-popular ‘Liebeslieder’ Waltzes.  Originally for
voice and piano, these are performed in an arrangement for strings.

Parry’s contribution is in the form of his gorgeous ‘English Suite’ for strings,
composed in 1914

Early English music of Purcell brings a suite of dances from The Fairy Queen,
arranged by Simon Walton

The atmosphere heats up with dance music by the vibrant Argentinian composer Astor
Piazzolla in special arrangements by Simon Walton.

The entertainment continues with a vivacious suite ‘Fiddlers’ composed in 1952 by the
Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara.

The talented young composer Anna Semple has also written ‘Tango’ for the orchestra,
which will receive its first public performance at this concert

date: 23/11/2019

time: 7.30 pm
