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?
Reason: he investigates an issue properly and provides a cost-effective solution.
1. Several people visited me to discuss an issue with, I thought, my guttering and all bar Lee recommended replacing the guttering, often without even going up a ladder to look. Lee was the only one to realise that all that was needed was to replace a piece of lining material under some tiles.
2. When I wanted to sort out an issue re a silly space in my bathroom and get a better shower, others recommended replacing the bath and taking a feed off the hot tank for the shower, which would possibly have required a new tank too. Lee's answer was FAR cheaper and just as effective.
Although a newbie to Amersham, there seem to be a good few shops and services opening and closing, including some long standing fixtures.
Twist in the tale - is now closed as the owners are focusing on their tuition business (full explanation at: http://www.twistinthetale.co.uk/twist/). The premises seems set to become an oven shop.
Aspire Dental - is taking over the vacant office by the Aston Martin garage. I assume they're moving from their Little Chalfont location rather than opening a second location, although not confirmed. Does anyone have any experience of Aspire? This location is convenient for us and I do need to register my daughter and me with a dentist in town.
Other changes include the pet shop on Sycamore road has closed, as has the recruitment agency near the ice cream shop. Never good to see vacant shops but the new openings elsewhere seems positive.
Hello everyone. I'm desperate for some advice and would be grateful for any help.
We've just moved into Amersham (near the train station) and my son has been allocated to start reception class next month at Coleshill COE Infant School. We're really very pleased about the allocation as we've heard nothing but good things about the school. However, being completely new to the area we haven't realised how difficult it is getting to the school without access to a private car. The village doesn't appear to be well served by buses (do correct me if I'm wrong!) and the closest bus stops along the A404 or A355 would require a good 20-25 min walk uphill to get to the village - virtually impossible for the nanny to manage with 2 young kids in tow.
Does anyone know if there are any school buses that we can look into? Or if we can approach anyone to arrange car-pooling? We are hoping to find a solution to this problem as we think the school will be otherwise perfect for my son.
Many thanks in advance.

Does anyone know someone who can fix this please? I currently have a spare room which has no wireless connectivity, and want to use the network cable in the wall (to connect to my router).
Local shops are busy, and don't phone back.
