‘Understanding Magistrates in the [Single] Family Court’

‘ The Family Court focuses on the needs and best interests of children and is very different to the Adult Criminal court. This Family Court presentation was developed to inform people about what the Family Court does, in layman’s language, and to try to dispel some of the myths and preconceptions that exist about the role of the Family Court and how it operates’.


Come and meet the Trustees and Volunteers


Refreshments will be served after the meeting.


We invite you to bring a guest and we look forward to seeing you there.

Chesham Theatre Company is presenting “Jumpers for Goalposts” -June 29th to 1st July

‘Barely Athletic’ is not exactly the greatest team ever; in fact it is pretty rubbish.  But bossy head coach and pub landlady, Viv does her best to motivate four uninspired individuals to do their best.

The play focuses on the relationships between the members of a five-a-side Sunday football team in Hull, with a twist: it is set in the gay and lesbian league.  There are some real laugh-out-loud moments.

Chesham Theatre Company is presenting “Jumpers for Goalposts” in association with Nick Hern Books. 

The show runs nightly at 8pm from Thursday June 29th to Saturday 1st July at the Little Theatre in the Park, Chesham.

We are presenting this as a ‘Supper Theatre’ so drinks and picnics welcome but food and drink will be on sale. 

Tickets priced at £12.50 each (tables of eight) available from www.trybooking.co.uk/1175

Scrub up for Scannappeal

Scannappeal, a charity dedicated to providing state of the art medical equipment, has launched the Scrub Run at the Cardiology Department of Wycombe Hospital setting the scene for the inaugural family fun run for local charity. The run is taking place on Sunday 21 May and plans to see all manner of doctor’s coats, nurse’s uniforms and scrubs take on the challenge.

 

Participants can choose a 5k or 1k route, both of which start and finish at Amersham Cricket Club and will take in the beautiful Great Missenden Way and Shardeloes. Those taking part are welcome to run, jog or walk, and don your favourite doctors and nurses’ outfit in homage to the incredible work our doctors and nurses do.

 

The day will kick off with a warm up provided local company, Wild Training, who are kindly supporting the event.  With the runners decked out in their ‘doctors and nurses’ gear it is sure to bring a smile to everyone’s face!

 

Hannah Camden, Operations Director, Wild Training said” Wild Training are excited to be supporting the Scannappeal Scrub Run and are delighted to be able to bring our passion to the event and get everyone motivated through a fun a friendly warm up”.

 

By taking part you will be supporting Scannappeal’s All Heart Appeal. This Appeal is raising funds to buy two latest generation 3D scanners to diagnose and evaluate heart disease.  Equipment purchased by Scannappeal is used every 10 minutes in the local hospitals by 1 in 4 residents of Buckinghamshire.

Registration for the Scrub Run closes on Wednesday 17 May at midday. Adult entry is £10,       5 – 16 year olds £5, and under 5’s run free with every participant receiving an exclusive Scrub Run medal on completion. Early bird entry fees will be available until Monday 3 April 2017.

Over the Top! by the Journeymen Theatre – Amersham – Saturday 25th March

Over the Top! by the Journeymen Theatre
The latest event in our series ‘Why Conflict?’ is a forum
theatre performance of ‘Over the Top!’ by the Journeymen
Theatre.
Battle lines are drawn when a head teacher and parent
clash over the role of the military in our schools.
Over the Top! is a powerful drama focussing on the
dilemmas created when two contrasting points of view
about the role of the military in our schools clash, and
come to a head-on confrontation.
Kathy Wooton is a Quaker and highly passionate advocate
for peace. Dr Roberts, head of her teenage son’s school,
is a pragmatic man who can’t see the problem of the
military being involved in school events, and feels that
engaging with the army brings nothing but positive
advantages for his (cash-strapped) Academy.
Their telephone and face-to-face exchanges, plus their
conversations and text messages with off-stage
characters, illustrate the alarming, challenging and
emotional issues involved. It is often darkly funny.
As forum theatre, the entertaining 55 minute drama is
intended to promote discussion and the exchange of ideas
with, and between, the actors and audience. We invite
parents, teachers, youth group leaders and 14+ teens to
join us for a lively evening including tea and cake.
Entry is FREE, but space is limited so prior booking via
Eventbrite is recommended. Parking available.
There will be a closing collection for Journeymen Theatre
and charities supported by Why Conflict?

date: Saturday 25th March 2017

time: 7pm (doors open from 6:30 pm)

venue: Amersham Quaker Meeting House, Whielden St, HP7 0JB

cost: FREE (prior reservation via Eventbrite recommended
