Dry Cleaners

Amersham - Sun, 09/14/2014 - 17:25

Can anyone recommend a particularly good dry cleaner.  Ideally in Amersham, or further afield if they are worth travelling to.  I haven't had the need to do any for some time and the item is of some age and a bit delicate, so I am looking for someone who I can thoroughly trust.

 

Thanks.

Remembrance Day & Sikhism

Amersham - Sat, 09/13/2014 - 09:53
With Remembrance day approaching... the majority of us can only but try to imagine what life was like during both world wars, the emotions, the sacrifices made all round.

The same sacrifices are still being made today by our armed forces and their families around the world as we speak. So I guess we don't really have to go far to find out what it must be like (to some extent), but it is so easy to get caught up in our own mini struggles in life that it is easy to forget what others must be going through. I guess that is human nature though (not excusing it!).

The selfish angle to this post:
I'm a British Sikh, and whilst growing up I suffered the usual racial abuse from a minority of narrow minded school pupils, and occasionally random people on the bus, in town (Hayes) etc. I don't feel I was hard done by or anything, but some of the abuse would follow roughly along the lines of "We fought the war for this country, what did you do? Go back home" yadda yadda. You can guess the rest lol.

I wont go on much further about me. But I wish more was known by Joe Public about Sikhs. It would have made my life as a child (and adult) easier I guess, but at the same time I guess I'm glad I got given a rough time as I think it has made me a better and more tolerant person.

But - today is today. We do have more information on Sikhs, and there is a documentary being shown tonight on BBC1 @ 11:20pm about Remembrance Day, and the Sikh aspect of the story.

In NO WAY do I wish to detract from the sacrifices made by all the brave soldiers from around the world fighting for good to prevail over bad... but I just wanted to bring this documentary to the attention of as many people as possible.

http://www.bbc.co.uk...rammes/b00vys5t
"Documentary examining why followers of the Sikh religion were marked out as a 'martial race' under the British Empire, and how thousands of Sikh soldiers valiantly laid down their lives for Britain's freedom across two world wars."

I'm just gutted it is being shown so late in the evening. It would be nice if a lot more people knew about Sikhs, as a lot of people confuse us with Muslims (not that Muslims are bad - 99% I've met have been normal - shame there are a few idiots (+ the media and the "Politically Correct" culture) out there who make it tough for everyone), and that Sikhs (and many other faiths) made a contribution to the war effort.

Sorry if I've accidentally offended anyone. It wasn't intended. I also don't want to remove any focus from the overall event and remembrance of all the brave soldiers and their families.

Changes To The High Street

Amersham - Fri, 09/12/2014 - 22:26

Although a newbie to Amersham, there seem to be a good few shops and services opening and closing, including some long standing fixtures.

 

Twist in the tale - is now closed as the owners are focusing on their tuition business (full explanation at: http://www.twistinthetale.co.uk/twist/). The premises seems set to become an oven shop.

 

Aspire Dental - is taking over the vacant office by the Aston Martin garage. I assume they're moving from their Little Chalfont location rather than opening a second location, although not confirmed. Does anyone have any experience of Aspire? This location is convenient for us and I do need to register my daughter and me with a dentist in town.

 

Other changes include the pet shop on Sycamore road has closed, as has the recruitment agency near the ice cream shop. Never good to see vacant shops but the new openings elsewhere seems positive.
