There has been a small film crew filming a "short film" behind Tesco and in the Dovecote car park these last few days. It has been interesting watching them while on the school run as it has been quite varied: a fight in the car park and a wheelchair on the path over the bridge behind Tesco.
I wonder if anyone managed to get any more detail as to what was being filmed?
I'm going to start with this - I don't eat fish, any seafood in fact so when I use the term fish and chip (shop) I mean the type of shop, not one that specifically and exclusively sells fish. Chippy is a better word, I expect.
Nautica is closing - we know this, so where are we going to go for our fish and chips? Nautica provided a wide range of food (ie, lots of stuff besides what you get in a chippy) at a decent price and they served quickly and efficiently. Sure, it wasn't gourmet gear, but it never was expected to be.
I've been into the one near the WV dealership in Little Chalfont and that was excellent, though it took ages to get served. I can't remember it's name though and streetview is not working well on my laptop at work.
I was also told there's a good one in Chesham, run by a Chinese family, but don't know the name or location of that either.
Does anyone know of these two, or of other good chippys?
edit: Found the LC one. I think it's called Seaworld Fish 'N' Chips, on Burtons Lane, a few doors down from the Oriental carpet shop
edit2 And I think I've found the Chesham one too. Hings on Waterside?
Warning To Vehicle Owners To Be Vigilant Following Thefts Of Catalytic Converters From Motor Vehicles In Amersham
Thames Valley Police is warning vehicle owners to be vigilant following a spate of thefts of catalytic converters from motor vehicles in Amersham, Chesham and Little Chalfont areas. All incidents have occurred during late evening / early morning and offenders have targeted Seat Alhambra, Volkswagen Sharan and Ford Galaxy models.
Catalytic converters contain small amounts of three precious metals: platinum, palladium and rhodium. The price of these metals has soared in recent years, and so thieves will target vehicles with a higher clearance to gain a substantial return for a few minutes work.
There are lots of actions you can take to help keep your vehicle safe:
- Where possible, park in your garage.
- Alternatively, park in a location that restricts access underneath your vehicle.
- If your catalytic converter is ‘bolt-on’, you can have the bolts welded shut.
- Identify / etch your converter with a unique serial number and advertise that the vehicle has been protected (window stickers).
- Consider security lighting.
- Consider the installation of CCTV to protect your vehicle.
If you have any information please contact PC 6195 Adam Thomas via the Thames Valley Police Enquiry Centre on 101.
If you don’t want to speak directly to the police you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at www.crimestoppers-uk.org
No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
A fresh campaign has been started by Amersham Action Group to get a lift in Amersham Station. As you may know, those returning or arriving from London need to negotiate steep steps to get out of the station. It is virtually impossible for some and poses great difficulty for the elderly and others with prams or luggage or shopping.
ADRA [Amersham & District Residents Association] wrote to the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, last year to resume the construction work that was abandoned a few years ago. We hope a fresh campaign strongly supported by residents and others affected via a Petition will help us present a stronger case.
Please respond to the on line petition at : www.petitions24.com/ALiftForAmershamStation
Also, please forward these details tor family, friends , business acquaintances etc. who may be affected with a request to respond.
