Easter Family Fun at Amersham Museum
Amersham Museum is offering a fun-filled programme of family activities this Easter. Bring your children to hunt for Easter eggs, get creative with the Easter activities in our craft cases, or come to a special Create! craft session.
Hunt around the museum for hidden Easter eggs. Inside each Easter egg is a clue to help you find the chick’s nest and the chocolates! The Easter egg trail runs from Saturday 28th March to Sunday 12th April on Saturdays, Sundays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Bank Holiday Monday. There is no additional charge for the trail (after usual admissions).
This Easter there will also be two special Create! craft sessions on Wednesday 1st and Wednesday 8th April. At these you can make an Easter basket, decorate an Easter egg and make an animal mask. Each session costs £1 per child in addition to the normal entrance fee. Throughout the holidays the museum’s craft cases and explorer packs will also be available for children to use.
The Easter events kick off Amersham Museum’s exciting programme of family activities for 2015. Curator Emily Toettcher says “Easter is always a busy time for us and we are offering a wide range of hands-on activities for all the family. Visitors to our web site at www.amershammuseum.org can find the programme or regular as well as special events throughout the year.”
It is ugly and placed without any thought or consideration.
I have contacted the planning dept. cdc and have been advised that they objected to this work going ahead in 2011.
Apparently no planning app has been received and I quote" looks like they have just gone ahead"
Anybody with an ounce of sense could have placed it in a better more discrete position.
I am looking for a clasical (Sanish) guitar teacher in the Amersham area.

I'm still not sure why but we decided to have a takeaway from the new Pizza Hut over the weekend.
We won't be going back. The pizzas just did not taste fresh. Most of them have been thrown away.
I wasn't expecting wondrous pizzas from them but even so it was very disappointing.
I offer individual clarinet and saxophone lessons to students of all ages and abilities, ranging from beginner to Diploma standards.
I am an experienced and enthusiastic teacher, and I have over 15 years experience tutoring on a 1:1 basis. I hold an LRAM teaching diploma in woodwind from the Royal Academy of Music, where I studied clarinet and saxophone, graduating with 1st Class Honours.
I am able to prepare students for Trinity Guildhall and ABRSM exams, as well as music GCSE and A Level practical exams. I am proud to maintain a 100% pass rate for all my students whom I have entered for exams over the last 15 years.
Whether or not students wish to take exams, I endeavour to ensure that they develop the skills to be well rounded musicians, finding their own voice and the confidence to express themselves through the instrument, whilst ensuring that this is backed up with a sound technique. I recognise that all students are individuals, and each require a different approach for them to achieve their full potential.
Please PM me for further details.
I don't know if anyone has noticed, but the car park at the Nat West now has cameras on the entrance and exit and if you do your banking and park here and stay longer for 20 minutes you will receive an automatic "fine" for £100, unless you have told the staff in the bank who will then apparently "write to the car parking company" to try and get your "fine" overturned.
Apparently, this is in response to "customer feedback". Now I totally agree that people should not take advantage of these car park facilities, but £100 for an overstay in a free car park? The problem is the signage is illegal and not clear. There are only two signs, one on each side of the bank and these are 8' up in the air. Furthermore, the terms and conditions referred to on the signage are not actually on the signage! Nat West staff however have hastily printed out A4 sheets and stuck them to the bank windows informing customers that they only have 20 minutes to do their banking, unless as they advised in my opening paragraph. This signage is against the rules set out by the BPA, who although sounding like a Government body are in fact a Limited Company set up and paid for by the private parking companies to give an impression and veneer of respectability.
Since clamping on private land was outlawed in 2012 the clampers turned themselves into private parking companies. This is a growing phenomenon and most of the car parks in Aylesbury have ANPR systems or wardens from private companies.
The plain fact is though that this has nothing to do with parking management, but is all about extorting money from the unsuspecting and the vulnerable. Why else do these companies target supermarket car parks, shopping centres and even NHS Hospitals?
With ANPR camera operated car parks, such as the Nat West in Amersham, there is nothing stopping people parking in disabled bays as you are only photographed on entry and exit, so if a person is pushing a wheelchair or buggy behind your car when you exit, you will quite possibly receive a "fine" to the registered keeper asking who was driving the car and threatening CCJ's if you don't pay and a discount for quick payment.
Don't be fooled, these are not actually parking fines even though they state they are PCN's meaning Parking Charge Notice rather than Penalty Charge Notice which are issued by councils and the police. These are in fact in law no more than speculative invoices dressed up to look like fines inviting you to pay these charges, which are wholly disproportionate to the scale of the "offence". Nat West staff have shot themselves in the foot and broken the BPA code by calling these invoices fines.
If you are unfortunate enough to get caught out and receive one of these tickets, don't despair or feel threatened and certainly do not pay! They are fairly easy to get overturned. Some companies despite all the threats never actually take anyone to court.
There is a Test case Parking Eye v Beavis going through the Court of Appeal at the moment which will potentially have a massive effect on consumer law in this Country if the case goes the way of Parking Eye, an ANPR company purchased by Capita within the last 18 months. Which, the Consumer Association, plus the RAC and AA are all against PE.

If you have received an "invoice" and use Facebook, check out the following private group and ask to join and you will find many people in the know offering sound help and advice: https://www.facebook.com/groups/fightyourprivateparkinginvoice/

Parking needs to be managed, but at the moment it's a free for all and the general public, especially the vulnerable are getting conned and fleeced by these greedy and unscrupulous firms.
Hello, I wondered if anyone could recommend a Spanish tutor at AS level please? We're based in Amersham.
There's another group of men on trial for grooming and abusing girls in Chesham. The second in a year. Plus 10 men, including one from Chesham, today, were charged with abusing children in Aylesbury. There's already been cases in High Wycombe. It appears Bucks is no different from the Northern mill towns.
I wonder if Bucks social services and TVP have as much to hide as their counterparts in Rotherham?
@tfbalerts: ROAD CLOSURE: Bois Lane, Chesham Bois - Railway Bridge to South Rd. 05/03/15 - 31/03/15 09.30 - 15.30 - Carriageway Patching Works.
Seems quite a long period, don't know how much disruption it will cause
I would be interested in finding someone to give my small house in Amersham occasional very thorough cleaning - possibly monthly. Recommendations would be welcome. Thank you.

In May 2007 he performed Rachmaninov 2 in the famous Benaroya Hall in Seattle with the Cascade Symphony Orchestra, receiving a standing ovation from the audience of 2000. He has performed and held Master classes in France, Germany, USA, Poland, Russia and Denmark. Future plans include performances in the USA, Belgium, Germany, Israel, Norway, Italy, Denmark and Russia.
AN EVENING OF FREE SPEECH.
Throughout the world the ability to speak freely without fear of reprisal or indeed arrest is becoming less and less possible. Recent events in France, Egypt and in the UK suggest the right to free speech is being questioned and limited by various governments and other ruling bodies including religions. This evening, we will explore what is happening here and overseas in this intrusion in what some believe is a basic human right.
If this right is something you believe should be defended, please come along and share your feelings. Everyone is welcome to our meetings. Just come along.
date: 11th March 215
