  • Amersham News Views and Information News Feed: Hearing Dogs Christmas Market – Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th November

    Hearing Dogs Christmas Market

    Local charity Hearing Dogs for Deaf People is preparing
    for the most magical season of all with a wonderful
    Christmas Market.

    The Saunderton-based charity is opening its doors to
    Christmas shoppers and dog-lovers for two days of
    yuletide fun, with plenty of activities and gift stalls
    to get all the family into the festive spirit.

    We are ready to kick-start the Christmas season with the
    return of our much-loved Christmas Market at our Hearing
    Dogs headquarters, nestled in the heart of
    Buckinghamshire countryside.

    We will have plenty of stalls providing beautiful hand-
    crafted gifts and stocking fillers to tick off your
    shopping lists as well as a special visit from Father
    Christmas who will be in his grotto to give presents with
    the help of his special elves and rein-dogs! And, if
    that’s not enough, everyone will receive a complimentary
    mince pie and warm mulled punch. So, dust off your
    Christmas jumpers and join us for a magical weekend!

    The Christmas Market will raise vital funds so that more
    deaf people can be partnered with a life-changing hearing
    dog. The Charity does not receive any government funding
    and relies entirely on donations to continue its work.

  • Amersham News Views and Information News Feed: Amersham Museum New Dinky Toy Exhibition

    Amersham Museum Opens New Dinky Toy Exhibition

    Amersham Museum’s extensive collection of Dinky Toys will be on display for the first time this autumn. From 18th October visitors to the museum will be able to see the museum’s collection of over 150 toys, on display together for the first time.

    The museum was given the majority of the collection in 2006, when it was transferred from Wandsworth Museum. Originally amassed by local resident Chris Salaman, the vehicles were purchased from Butler’s toy shop in old Amersham in the late 1950s and early 1960s when he was a child. The collection includes cars, heavy goods vehicles and military vehicles and is complemented by a large number of Meccano magazines and Dinky booklets which advertised the toys. There are toys manufactured at the main Binns Road factory in Liverpool as well as those produced in France. There are also some modern replicas of both the British and French models.

    Visitors to the exhibition can explore the collection, share their Dinky memories and try to order the cars in chronological order on the Dinky timeline. Younger visitors can participate in Dinky themed craft activities. On Saturday 11th November there will be a special Dinky Day, with activities, talks and an opportunity to meet Chris and find out about his collection.

    The exhibition runs Wednesday-Sunday 12 -4.30pm from 18th October to Sunday 26th November.

    The museum is open Wednesday – Sunday and Bank Holiday Mondays, 12 noon – 4.30pm. Admission is £3 adults, children free. Many of the activities for families are free after admission.

  • Amersham News Views and Information News Feed: The Titfield Thunderbolt – 8 to 11 Nov. @ The Elgiva Theatre, Chesham – Chesham Theatre Company

    Chesham Theatre Company’s latest production based on the Ealing Comedy classic “The Titfield Thunderbolt”, proudly sponsored by Barnett Waddingham

    http://www.cheshamtheatrecompany.org.uk/

    The following play will be performed :

    The Titfield Thunderbolt
    by TEB Clarke

    Synopsis

    The Titfield Thunderbolt: can the villagers of Titfield save their steam train?

    The latest production is based on the classic Ealing comedy, “The Titfield Thunderbolt”, which starred the great Stanley Holloway and harkens back to the simpler days of steam trains and the closure of small branch lines by Dr Beeching.  Set in the fifties, it tells the tale of the villagers of Titfield and their plans to buy and run the line themselves or risk losing their commute to work and market, vying for business against Harry Crump, the owner of the local bus service.

    Directed by Chesham’s own Trevor Pilling, we see the villagers and Crump go head to head and Crump plays dirty!  Who is the mysterious Miss Coggett?  Who is lurking about in the dark?  Will the vicar get his wish of driving the train?  And will the villagers triumph in the end?  Starring plenty of well-known local theatre faces, this play is a laugh-out-loud romp with plenty of old-fashioned humour for all the family.

    Chesham Theatre Company prides itself on building their own sets – in the past they have created World War 2 France, the mysterious world of Terry Pratchett, many many front rooms and most recently a Hull football changing room.  This time round there will be a steam train on stage!  How are they going to do that?

    Chesham Theatre Company is proud to be celebrating its 70th birthday this Autumn.  The well-known local group has been providing first-class community theatre since 1947.  One of its founder members, Gwenda Hudson still continues to be an active part of the group to this day!

    CTC performs in both the Little Theatre by the Park and the Elgiva and puts on three productions a year, as well as hosting murder mystery events.

    The purpose is a to make local news available for non commercial use.

    It relies on News feeds from Councils, BBC, Police, Local Blogs, Local news.In order to add extra content and services our external links and displays are free.

    As the blog is to promote local news free and is non commercial non profit making network it would not be possible to pay Press Association Commercial licence fees for content because it is not set up to make a financial gain.

    A recent court case agrees commercial users can be charged for content that is resold for profit. However non commercial blogs etc would not be charged.

    However it appears some press associations are getting rather greedy and are chasing private bloggers for fees if they are using some local newspaper feeds.

    They appear to be using a debt collection business called Buchanan Clark & Wells of Glasgow who are sending made up charges for use of copyright material.

  • So we are on way way out of The European Union

    The option to Vote has now driven us out of The Union.

    We now have to take the advantage and not carry on blaming ourselves or others.It was a shock the way it went BUT GET OVER IT.

    The European Union is an organisation that tries to represent Europe.
    It is now nervous that a country has dared to take control of themselves.

    It will not be easy to deal with them because they want us to fail.
    We will not fail and maybe others will split away.That is their biggest fear.

    Northern Ireland now needs to be used as a trade Area to negotiate with Europeans direct.Taking advantage of its doorstep location with Southern Ireland. The UK needs to lower corporation rates to be the same as Ireland.This will be an advantage for all business.

    We need to create a small coordinating and marketing organisation and use CBI and Group Trading organisations to promote Great Britain.The commonwealth needs to be a bigger part of our trade. Our main objective must be to trade globally.
    The social legislation and general laws need to be rewritten and but back into British Law. Maybe a 5 year project.There is going to be lots to sort. In the meantime we can still use Modified European Law and call it that.

  • Human Rights in Business: Tobacco cos. commit to protecting child workers in their supply chains
    "Tobacco companies commit to protect child workers worldwide", 15 November 2017 With a major change to an industry-wide due diligence program, the Sustainable Tobacco Program (STP), now at least 180 tobacco companies are pledging to prohibit all children under 18 from handling green tobacco on farms in their supply chains. The STP is used by major multinational manufacturers and leaf dealers as well as other tobacco companies operating in 52 countries, which combined are contracting with hundreds of thousands of farms worldwide... We have consistently found that many children who handle tobacco are at serious risk of nicotine poisoning, also known as Green Tobacco Sickness... While companies haven’t yet gone far enough in implementing this ban on children working with tobacco, the new requirements could protect millions of children from nicotine poisoning.
