Now I have seen it all. Yesterday, I actually watched a lady in Tesco's open several boxes of eggs and pick out the larger ones to fill two empty boxes (or more).....she was taking quite a few minutes and, no, I didn't say a word ! On the same day, at the 'til, a young man tore off the top of a pineapple he was buying and left it, and it's juice, on the conveyor belt because he didn't want to carry it in his shoulder bag....no attempt to clean up the mess ! There are some really odd people around.
I normally go to the cricket club on woodside road but they don't appear to be advertising this year (unless i'm blind as a bat). Are they having one this year? If not i'm considering the rugby club on weedon lane.
Reported on Chiltern DC web site. Planning permission is being applied for a takeaway where Roberts currently is, althugh that is closing.
This will be another food outlet in that area, more choice?

I've been told about the local fitness gyms but these dont really suit my training methods.
which lists actors who have had a connection to Amersham.
It strikes me that perhaps details of other famous people could also be put on the page. If anyone can add to my list, please let me know. With the exception of Beel House, I have not given any specific addresses and do not want people to provide specific addresses.

This topic really comes out of the famous people thread. There does seem to be something of a little cluster of houses in the Old Town, close to each other, with literary links.
Roald Dahl and Val Biro lived in houses only a few doors apart, and one of those on the other side of the road was also lived in by a writer - albeit one less well known.
I wonder if there is a connection, or is this purely coincidence?
Is it a good idea? Or is it a nuisance? Does it add to traffic jams?

I pointed out the following:
- This was over 7% of the purchase price of the entire car
- Their labour rate of £97.50 is nearly the same as an Official Porsche Centre would charge
- That a franchised BMW dealer would charge about the same for an oil service on a V10 M5
Short version: Any good independent garages in Amersham?
My parents in law have offered us their old table tennis table. But we need to arrange for it to be transported from South Wales to Amersham. Does anyone know of any local companies who collect stuff and deliver to Amersham? Any pointers welcome. Thanks Cath
Just a rumour but is there any truth to it? I have heard it is going to become......an Italian..groan!
Just wondering if there is a school bus to take 6th form to Sir William Borlase? Or how best could the journey be one?
Does anyone know of/has used a good reasonably priced local carpenter please? We have a few jobs we'd like doing - banister changing, cupboards building ...

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?
