  • Amersham News Views and Information News Feed: Subwoofers Music Festival – 6th May – Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, The Grange, Saunderton

    The Subwoofers Music Festival

    Stuck for something to do this May bank holiday weekend?
    The SubWoofers Music Festival is family-friendly! It’s
    dog-friendly! It’s deaf-friendly! It takes place on
    Sunday 6 May, at Hearing Dogs for Deaf People’s beautiful
    centre nestled among the idyllic Chiltern hills.
    Family-friendly. With a magician, face painter and
    storytellers, it’s a brilliant day out for everyone. The
    kids can go ‘Ahhh!’ at the magic and stories, and granny
    can get her face painted.
    Attractions and rides*. Bump those bumper cars, or bounce
    on the inflatables, just make sure you plan your food and
    drink wisely! Alternatively, applaud the circus acts or
    chill out with yoga… nice…
    Food and drink*. We weren’t sure what food you’d like, so
    we booked it all! Pizza, paella, fish & chips, cakes,
    crępes, chicken, samosas, snacks, sweets   with hot
    drinks and a bar to wash it all down.
    Dog-friendly. Dogs are part of the family! We have a dog
    activity area, and traders selling doggy accessories and
    treats. We also have plenty of dog-lovers waiting to make
    them feel welcome.
    Deaf-friendly. Deaf people can enjoy the day with BSL
    interpreters and speech-to-text displays. To protect
    against hearing loss, hearing people also receive a FREE
    set of earplugs.
    Live music. We’ve booked bands such as Skasouls UK and
    The Horn Division, and singer/songwriters such as James
    Mullally, Dolly Mavies, James Kennedy and Nick Byrne.
    The Silent Child. We will be showing special screenings
    of the Oscar-winning film The Silent Child!
    * Please note: food, drinks and rides are not included in
    the entry price
    Why SubWoofers? At Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, we
    believe that no one with deafness should feel lonely.
    This is why we train dogs that help deaf people lead full
    lives through constant companionship, and alerting them
    to sounds they cannot hear. When you come to SubWoofers,
    every penny you spend will help us train more amazing
    dogs   and help more deaf people leave loneliness behind.

  • Amersham News Views and Information News Feed: Workaid Exhibition – How to Recycle and Help Others – Amersham Museum 2nd May – 3rd June

    Workaid Exhibition Teaches us How to Recycle and Help Others
    Amersham Museum 2nd May – 3rd June 2018

    The achievements of local charity Workaid, which repairs objects for re-use in Africa, will be celebrated in a new exhibition at Amersham Museum. The exhibition, which has been created in partnership with Workaid, will run from 2nd May – 3rd June 2018 when the museum is open, Wednesday – Sunday and Bank Holiday Mondays 12 noon – 4.30pm. Visitors can find out how the organisation repairs objects, the benefits their work delivers and hear from some of the volunteers why they enjoy helping.

    Workaid first opened in 1986 in response to the famine in Ethiopia. They have grown from a group of 30 to over 250 volunteers today. Their mission was to help people help themselves and stop the cycle of poverty. They did this by collecting unwanted tools and equipment such as sewing and knitting machines. They restored them, so they could be re-used and sent to well researched projects in East Africa. No money is ever sent.
    General Manager of Workaid Rob Levine notes: “We are delighted that the Amersham Museum has decided to showcase the wonderful work that Workaid does! We hope that the exhibit creates more interest and enthusiasm for what both we and the Museum do.”

    Workaid first started in a shed in Little Chalfont but has now expanded to the premises of the Old Boot Factory in Chesham, still run by a dedicated team of volunteers. They now have their own shop, craft centre and help people with learning disabilities, as well as donating tools to projects in the UK. This exhibition tells their story over the last 32 years, focusing on the benefits of volunteering for both the volunteer and the recipient. There will be tools that people can handle as well as oral histories from the volunteers themselves as well as a range of archives and exhibits.
    The exhibition is part of a wider museum project, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, which celebrates local people’s stories from the 20th century.
