The grand Euphorium Bakery has opened today. Well, maybe not so grand. There does appear to be some decent bread there but much of it is the same as before with different labels, and prices. The old 40p rolls used to be sold at 4 for £1, now they are 3 for 2 - 27p instead of 25p.
But what really amused me was the notice outside. What are we supposed to imagine - roasted larks' tongues? Or is a bit of honesty creeping into Tesco marketing and they are admitting that most of their claims are only imaginary?
I have to say the platform staff at Amersham are very good and helpful. I do find it frustrating that when the ticket office is closed there is still often someone in it but they can't sell tickets, so they should come out and be more visible. I also have to say that I don't use the ticket office normally as I have Oyster, but on the couple of occasions we have asked for some specific help with a railcard issue, the ticket office were not able to help or did not know the answer despite the TFL web site saying the information / assistance would be available from any underground ticket office. The same issue was easily sorted out at Kings X ticket office. So I don't think I will miss the ticket office but would prefer to see more visible staff all the time
Has anyone had similar work done and could anyone recommend some body / company to do the work?
I'm with EE, formerly T-Mobile. I've been impressed with the 4G performance here in the town.
Especially when compared to what I used to get with 3G. It's about 10 times faster both up and down stream.
It also seems to be much more tolerant of poor signal - note how there's actually no signal bars on that screenshot, yet it managed speeds comparable with domestic broadband.
Oh no wait! The signal bars are from when I took the screenshot (at home), not when I actually did the test (walking along Stanley Hill) There was 4/5 bars at the time.
We went to Papad the other night it is in Broad Street, Chesham. so a little off area for this forum. However it is well worth a visit. Service can be a little slow, but the food is freshly prepared and a little different to normal Indian fare so it is worth the wait. The Chicken Dosa was very nice, As was the beef dish I had. Worth booking too as it was busy when we went.
After the Christmas festivities, why not start the New
Year with some top-notch Jazz.
You can enjoy an evening filled with music, laughter and dancing with The Keep Clear
Jazz Band and special guest Gordon Campbell.
which include a Ploughman's Supper. Cash bar available.

Do any of the good members on here know any mountain bike routes around Amersham, i want about a 1 - 1.5 hour loop, mostly of road.
Also are there any Sunday morning mountain bike clubs in Amersham, or people willing to meet up, go for a ride and share routes?
Tried it this weekend (Jan 2015).
The menu is predictable but none of my party left hungry. The presumed cook/proprietor came over to ask whether we'd enjoyed the meal. Daytime only.
I wish them well for the effort they made and because it's a welcome addition for that end of the road.
Does anyone else see this junction as a problem?
I am a Registered Nutritional Therapist, and I am passionate about helping people to transform their health through what they eat. It doesn’t have to be expensive, time consuming, complicated or boring, and you don’t have to give up all the things you love!
I have a special interest in digestive issues, weight loss, food intolerance, female health and sports nutrition.
Nutritional Therapy is more than just eating a ‘healthy diet’. It combines nutrition science with biochemistry to promote optimal health and prevent disease. We are what we eat, and our biochemistry is directly influenced by the nutrients from our food. Small changes to your diet can result in big improvements to your health.
I recognise that each person is an individual with unique requirements, and take time to define a personalised nutrition plan, rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach. I work closely with each client – with the support of their GP where appropriate – to address underlying causes rather than just symptoms. Typical health concerns that can be addressed with Nutritional Therapy include energy levels, blood sugar balance, emotional wellbeing, digestive health, hormonal balance and weight gain. Your nutritional programme will enable you to make significant and permanent improvements to your energy and health.
I look forward to working with you to achieve your health goals!

Hi, we are moving from Sydney to Amersham (though not found a house yet), plenty to view though when we arrive in Jan, and when we arrive we will just have our suitcases along with 3 kids. So we are hoping you can help us with finding furniture. We know ebay and gumtree are good but is there any second hand furniture stores around the area or perhaps a facegroup page like they have in our area over here? Also, is there any good car dealers that you could recommend? Thanks for your help.
Half watching this (no laughs) and noticed it was filmed in Old Amersham - and then in top Amersham.
We may have to keep watching.

Residents in Whielden Street have received a letter from Bucks County Council about proposals, the effect of which would be to
Remove 36% of the free parking spaces in Whielden St
by converting 19 of them to pay-&-display spaces
Full details of the proposal can be found at:
then click on "current consultations" followed by Whielden St
Residents elsewhere in the Old Town have NOT been consulted, but the loss of free spaces in Whielden Street will make parking more difficult everywhere.
Is it coincidence that this all happened over the Christmas/New Year period?
We are urging all residents in the Old Town to add their voice of protest and stop this creeping meterisation.
If you live in the Old Town you can help by discussing the issue with your neighbours and encouraging them to send a strong response.
Even if you dont live in the Old Town you are entitled to send a response.
You can read more information on our web site http://www.amershamsociety.org/
How to register your protest
Send your objections to Trish Eastham:
by e-mail: email@example.com, or
by letter: Bucks County Council, Place Service, New County Offices, Walton Street, Aylesbury, HP20 1UY
quote reference number 141211SWP;
state your objections;
do it before the 16th January 2015.
You can read some suggested objections and further suggestions of what else you can do on our web site http://www.amershamsociety.org/where you can also read about what the Amersham Society has done already to oppose the plan.
