The Town Mayor’s Welcome the town scooped a second consecutive Gold Award. Also, partnership with the Friends of Chesham Cemetery saw the refurbishment of the Victorian Hearse House; it has already hosted two fascinating history exhibitions.

Dear Reader, I feel really honoured to be Town Mayor for the third time, particularly as it is my 40th year as a councillor representing Chesham. In the coming year I look forward to meeting many of you and to supporting the huge number of local organisations that do so much good in our town. In my time as a councillor, I have always been involved in issues affecting young people. So, one of my chosen Mayoral Charities is The Theatre Shed. This all-inclusive group raises the aspirations of children and young adults, with those who are able supporting the less able. I am also supporting the Arctic One Foundation, which helps able-bodied and disabled people to get involved in sport. As many of you will know, I am also concerned for the welfare of our elderly, whose issues I became aware of in my previous terms as Mayor. I am glad that the new priority is to keep and support people in their own homes rather than care homes or hospital, and will be happy to support any group that helps that aim. 2015/16 was a busy year for the Town Council and saw it work closer than ever with many of its Town Partners. The Council and the Chesham Society combined efforts to ensure that Chesham’s voice was heard in the planning authority’s consultation on the Emerging Local Plan. Working with Chesham in Bloom,

Looking ahead, the Town Council has made the ambitious step of taking over the mowing of the majority of the town’s verges from the County Council. We aim to use our local knowledge to provide a better service. Having lived in Chesham for the majority of my life, I understand the frustrations of residents concerning car parking. So, I am particularly keen to see the town centre parking review progress towards delivering solutions for some of the most badly affected roads. As the most local council, the Town Council is often the first place that residents come to resolve a problem. So rather than simply complaining, the new Council is looking for ways to work more closely with Chiltern District Council and Buckinghamshire County Council to improve services for the good of the town. I am very proud that the Town Council manages The Elgiva and Chesham Moor Gym & Swim. We are keen to support and invest in these fantastic facilities so they continue to thrive and attract more residents. We will also be looking to invest in play areas and other facilities to deliver the best for Chesham. I look forward to serving a town I am proud of and our wonderful community with all its volunteers, and I take this chance to say thank you for all that you do. ‘Serve one another’ is a wonderful motto for the Town as well as its Council!

6. Chesham Town Council will ensure that the money entrusted to it by the residents of Chesham is securely managed and spent effectively on achieving the above objectives.

Chesham Town Council

The Council is responsible for many of the recreational and social facilities within town, including: Lowndes Park, the Moor and 10 recreational grounds; Chesham Cemetery and St Mary’s Churchyard; three allotment sites; floral displays; football pitches; town centre Christmas lights; the Elgiva; the Town Hall; Chesham Moor Gym & Swim; the war memorial and Market Square’s Clock Tower. The Council has recently taken on cutting the town’s grass verges on behalf of the County Council. But, the Council also works in partnership with a great range of organisations that share its vision for the town and have a tremendous amount of expertise, from the Friends of Lowndes Park to The Chesham Society. Examples of some of the work of these partners are included in the following pages, but the Council is actively seeking to develop these relationships further to achieve the best it can for Chesham.

Chesham Town Council came into existence in 1974, and is the only part of the local government structure that is solely focused on serving the town and its people. The Council is comprised of 19 Members who are elected for a term of four years. Each May, the Council elects a Town Mayor to serve for a period of one year. The last election was held in May 2015 and a full list of Councillors is shown on page 5. The Council, and its Policy & Resources, Recreation and the Arts, Development Control and Executive committees meet regularly to discuss issues and take decisions pertaining to the town. The public are encouraged to attend. They may also ask questions on any issue relating to Chesham during a 15-minute period of Public Questions at full Council meetings. The Council’s vision is to ‘improve the quality of life of all the residents of Chesham’. The Council has laid out a set of objectives to explain how it will achieve this: 1. To enable residents to enjoy high quality social, recreational and cultural facilities within the town and to seek the continuing improvement and development of these facilities in accordance with the desires expressed by the residents.

For more information on the Council and its work, please visit or you can get in touch by the following means: Post: Chesham Town Hall, Chesham, Bucks, HP5 1DS Phone: 01494 774842 Fax: 01494 582908 Email: Twitter: @CheshamCouncil Facebook: The Town Hall office is open to the public between 10am and 4.30pm, Monday to Friday.

2. To encourage and promote the economic and commercial vitality of Chesham in a way that encourages sustainable employment opportunities, housing and business facilities that respect the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in which it is situated. 3. To preserve the unique identity of Chesham and promote its heritage. 4. To consult with, understand and represent the views and wishes of the citizens of Chesham. 5. To create a socially inclusive and caring community, which embraces all its residents equally, seeking to develop their well-being, knowledge, understanding and mutual co-operation. 8

Chesham Environmental Group Along with my other half, I moved to Chesham due to the fact that over the years, as passers-by, we had both caught a glimpse of its historic charm and beautiful rural Chiltern setting. That was six years ago and we haven’t been disappointed. In fact, we love it, and this spurs us on to play our part in caring for the town. The part I first chose was to join the Environmental Group (CEG), and I haven’t regretted it! One of the great things about joining a voluntary organisation is that you meet a very diverse group of individuals with a range of experience and skills, while sharing the same reason for being there – valuing our unique surroundings. So on my first outing I found myself chatting with that year’s Mayor of Chesham, who was working like a Trojan, sturdy gloves and boots on, helping to clear the riverbank of unwanted undergrowth and litter! Oh – litter! This features in almost every work party – how is it that the odd individual thinks that it’s OK to leave their ugly litter for someone else to clean up? In spite of this, while litter clearance does feature on the list of CEG activities, there is plenty else we do. The Chess, our globally rare chalk stream, requires various kinds of care: trimming back branches, controlling weeds as they creep across footpaths, preserving the imaginative natural landscaping of Meades Water Gardens, or even dealing with blockages to the river flow, notably at Pednor. We also join forces with other local groups on occasion, such as Chesham in Bloom – or with town communities such as Newtown Baptists. Two or three years ago at the Vale end of town, Berkhampstead Field became available for transformation from a grassy patch to a wildflower area of real biodiversity, encouraging the appearance of orchid species and numerous butterflies. It is now a delightful hillside providing mown pathways through the flowers and grasses for dog walkers and nature lovers to enjoy. Now, when I take a moment to see what the group has achieved, there is a sense of real satisfaction. Not only this, but other opportunities develop. Little did I realise that joining CEG would offer me access to river monitoring activities – checking for invertebrates which are vital indicators of water purity; or for water voles in order to protect the environment they share with us.

All this leads to meeting more folks, making new friends, learning more, and feeling more connected with the valued community. Into the bargain you’re treated to nature’s special appearances: a yellow-breasted grey wagtail; a rare plant, or a family of swans – even the blue flash of a kingfisher or the slow, elegant flap of a white egret. Chesham is certainly worth our input! You too can join!

The Chesham Donkey Derby The Chesham Donkey Derby, now in its 26th year, is a well established, popular local family event. Started in 1990 by Tylers Hill Scout Group as a way to fundraise to support the group, the event was hailed an immediate success. The second year, planned as more ambitious than the first, saw the Chesham & Amersham Lions join the organising committee. The Derby, held on the Sunday prior to the Chesham Carnival, continued to expand and inspire a devoted local fan base. In April 2004, Tylers Hill Scout Group passed over the mantle to the 3rd Chesham Scout Group, being the largest group in Chesham. Two months later the event went smoothly and the 3rd were established as organisers for the activities on the day. In fact, by 2013 the Lions retired from the committee confident that 3rd Chesham could continue organising the whole event alone. The 26th Donkey Derby in June 2016 was the biggest yet with hundreds of people enjoying the racing, betting, craft stalls, activities and food in glorious sunshine. The Derby prides itself on providing traditional activity stalls, e.g. crockery smash, money tree, play your cards right and splat the rat at sensible costs, surrounding seven donkey races, beer and betting. The BBQ is always a major hit as the meat is locally sourced and cooked fresh while strawberries & cream and refreshments provide essential nourishment during the warm and busy afternoon. Craft stalls, petting animals and donkey rides offer further interest for every member of the family.

Particularly pleasing is the increasing number of families who come along with a picnic blanket and stay all afternoon enjoying the full range of activities and food on offer for all generations. Last June you could hardly see the grass of this level park for the number of people attending. The next Donkey Derby is on 11 June 2017. If you would like to advertise in the programme or sponsor one of the racing donkeys then do get in touch with Janet Sealy on The deadline for the finalisation of the programme is the end of March. Janet will also be booking stalls and the many attractions, as well as collecting donations for the tombolas and raffle. By May Janet will be looking for volunteers to run the Scout stalls and buying all the food and drink to be sold on the day. On the day of the Donkey Derby all the 3rd Chesham leadership turn up at 7.30am and work straight through to 7pm setting up the many tents and gazebos for the stalls, then they welcome the visitors from noon, and laugh and banter their way through to the close of the event about 5pm. The clearing away is always the hardest after a long and tiring day in the sun, but the leaders are always happy that another successful event has been completed. You can identify the team by their scout uniform/scarf so please give them a friendly hello during the day to keep them going. Please remember that Donkey Derby takes place in early June each year and pay it a visit. People who attend for the first time are amazed by the range of attractions and vow to return the next year.

Chesham Town Twinning needs you! Chesham Town Twinning Association elected a new chairman, Sylvia Ewington, at its annual general meeting in January 2016 and during her two-year term of office she will be presiding over a managed run-down of the association. In the previous year it was decided that, unless there was a reasonable increase in membership, with the emphasis on younger people, the group could no longer carry on hosting visitors in sufficient numbers from our twin towns. Should this happen it would end the life of a group that came together in 1979 for the purpose of finding a European twin town. Friedrichsdorf, just outside Frankfurt, fitted the bill and the councils of the two communities agreed that the link should be formalised, which took place in 1980. In 1986 Chesham took another twin, this time the town of Houilles, just outside Paris, a town already twinned with Friedrichsforf since 1973. In 1995, following an initiative of the then Lowndes School, a third twin town was welcomed to the fold, Archena, in the Murcia region of Spain. In the more than 36 years since that first twinning many exchanges have taken place: social, sporting and cultural. Members from all four towns have stayed in each other’s homes, in many cases forming long friendships and, in one case, even a marriage. There have been sporting contests: football, gymnastics, tennis; each year there is a European concert in either Friedrichsdorf or Houilles, mainly for young gifted musicians from the linked towns; each year there is an International Weekend, usually in May, and a Cultural Weekend, usually in September, when members from Chesham, Friedrichsdorf and Houilles stay in each other’s homes; youth exchanges have taken place each year; and Chesham members visit Archena one year, with the Spanish returning to Chesham the following year. It was Chesham’s turn to host the International Weekend in 2015 and what a weekend it was. There was a visit to Waddesdon Manor, which the visitors found enchanting, a civic reception in the Town Hall at which that year’s Town Mayor Peter Hudson addressed the visitors, emphasising the importance of town twinning,

Visitors from Friedrichsdorf and Houilles together with their host families, Town Mayor Peter Hudson and other councillors, at a Town Hall civic reception during the International Weekend hosted by Chesham in 2015. and a splendid dinner and disco at Chartridge Park Golf Club on the Sunday evening. Houilles has a twin town in the Caribbean island of Martinique, and visitors from there have come to Chesham and some of our members have been to Martinique. Officers from Chesham, Houilles and Friedrichsdorf meet every year, during the Cultural Weekend, to plan the following year’s activities. Now it appears that unless there is a dramatic change in our membership numbers, all this could cease. The links with the towns should continue, as they are civic links, and some of us, many of whom have been involved since the start, will continue to visit our friends in Europe. But sadly, should our Association cease to exist, the majority of these activities will no longer involve Chesham, even though those signs seen when entering the town will probably, and truthfully, state ‘Chesham, twinned with Friedrichsdorf, Germany, Houilles, France and Archena, Spain’. If you would like to get involved with Town Twinning, please visit the web site or contact the secretary Tony White via email at: 15

The Theatre Shed The Theatre Shed (formally known as Shed@ThePark) is a wonderful local registered charity that provides children and young people with one of the most important life-skills that they can have in their formative years – confidence. We do this through the medium of theatre, music and the performing arts. It is literally transformative to see a young person turn up who may have had their confidence knocked for whatever reason and see them just weeks later singing, acting, dancing or playing a musical instrument, brimming with assurance, spirit and happiness. We have been around for over 10 years in the heart of Chesham and are currently based at the Chesham Youth Centre. We welcome anyone from the age of six upwards, regardless of background and ability and are proud of our unique inclusive philosophy – our door is literally open to anyone. We are committed to each individual young person – encouraging, inspiring and acknowledging their contributions, whilst ensuring that everyone counts and that everyone can join in. Our small, highly skilled, professional artistic team (helped by our volunteer teenage mentors) hold weekly workshops and aim to put on performances composed

by our members at least once a term. We also have an outreach program which goes into local schools and other institutions to convey the importance of inclusivity. Like many small charities, we survive as a result of the generosity of those individuals who support us and we find that generating income is always a challenge. As a result, we will be holding our biennial Gala Fundraising event on 26 November 2016 and would like as many people as possible to join us for this auspicious occasion. If anyone wants more information on what we do, joining or volunteering for us, attending any of our workshops, our outreach programs, performances or attending our Gala event in November, or making a donation or sponsoring us, please visit our website at Thank you.

Chesham Museum After three years of hard work, Chesham Museum received the excellent news that it has been accredited by the Arts Council. “This is a very significant achievement and has been very much a team effort,” said vicechairman Chris Spruytenburg. “Everyone concerned deserves thanks from those connected with the Museum and from the town at large. It's been a long journey and involved numerous meetings to keep the momentum going and to tackle the next hurdle. The trustees must be congratulated for seeing the need and pursuing the goal of accreditation. Richard Hoyle, the museum's assistant curator, deserves credit for sticking to his task of leading the effort. Its museum mentor Karen Perkins, director at Luton Culture, also played a crucial role in steering us through the 'hurdles' of accreditation as does curator Harriet Ellis who worked tirelessly,” he said. Having achieved the required standard, the trustees can now look forward to closer collaboration with neighbouring museums and borrowing items to exhibit. One such exhibition that could come its way is the Art of Islam, which is on display in the county museum in Aylesbury. We will also be able to press ahead with securing funding from a number of sources. While this has been going on some of the trustees have been engaged in informal discussions with Chesham Library with a view to sharing the premises. This has happened elsewhere as organisations grapple with making economies. The proposed move would make a lot of sense as it would offer us more room, more people to view the exhibits, longer opening hours and greatly reduced rent.

Last autumn, the Museum team agreed that it needed to revamp its existing retail area to allow improved display of all items for sale and so increase revenue. The trustees obtained a grant for the work and in early February the various shelves and furniture were installed by a local carpenter and painted by project manager Tony Eustace and other volunteers. The pictures show part of the fresh new look in the shop area which should attract many more customers. Finally, the trustees have been strengthened by the addition of four new members, John Wolff, Joe Walker, Andrew Ketteringham and Ray Payne.

Celebrating 30 years of Dreamflight Each year, Dreamflight takes 192 children aged 8-14 with a serious illness or disability on their holiday of a lifetime to the theme parks of Orlando, Florida. The children travel without their parents, but instead with a team of volunteer Doctors, nurses and physiotherapists who ensure they have 10 days of excitement, friendship and fun. The Charity was founded in 1986 by Patricia Pearce MBE, who in the early years made everything happen from her ‘kitchen table’. The organisation has steadily developed and is marking its thirtieth year by moving to their new home in Chesham. Patricia commented ‘Councillor Peter Hudson [pictured below] championed Dreamflight as his Mayoral Charity last year, so we already feel really welcomed. We’re so grateful to Peter for all his fundraising, passion and understanding of the importance of volunteers. We certainly wouldn’t be able to do what we do without our amazing army of volunteer helpers. Thank you to everyone in Chesham who makes a difference, it’s a wonderful community’. Dreamflight needs to raise in excess of £750, 000 a year to finance the annual 10-day trip. Costs include a fabulous welcome party for their Very Important Children (VICs) at Heathrow, chartering a Boeing 747 to fly everyone to Florida, daily transport and entry to

the theme parks, accommodation, catering, medical equipment and of course – plenty of ice cream! The Charity has a small head office team who pull the whole thing together and is proud to say 95% of funds raised go towards the VICs, making sure each child has their very special trip of a lifetime. Dreamflight believes that fun, friendship and laughter can often do what medicine can’t and they’d love to share some of the magical moments they’ve caught on camera with you. Please visit to see the trip in action. If you’d like to hear about all the fun events planned this year or if you have any fundraising ideas, please contact Lisa Bishop on 01494 722733.

Chiltern Chamber â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the voice of local business Chiltern Chamber exists to support business and the economy in Chesham, Amersham and environs. We deliver a broad range of activities, designed to benefit businesses, business people and the local business environment.

Promoting your business


Chamber website, in a searchable database of members

First and foremost, we are a Networking Organisation, and a friendly one at that. Over a year, we organise more than 30 opportunities for members to meet up, make new contacts, and uncover new business opportunities. Our twice-monthly Breakfast Club, alternating between Chesham and Amersham, has proved a big hit.

and services.

Business is frequently done as a result of contacts and leads through the Chamber and its meetings. All Chamber members can have their own page on the

Access to advice Our Committee and Ambassadors are made up largely of business owners and senior employees, with considerable and varied experience of business. When asked to help or advise on specific business situations, we can usually help, or via our network, put you in touch with someone who can.

Building the local business environment Through links with local government and other institutions, we can make our voice, and those of our Members, influential in local consultations. We also enjoy working alongside other local Chambers and

A conduit for business & local information

Through our special recognition awards we

Our networking meetings are opportunities to share information, and to hear authoritative speakers talk on matters of importance to businesses and their owners. We keep our membership up to speed with local issues such as the Joint Local Plan, and initiatives such as Small Business Saturday. Our web site is updated regularly; we have a long and growing mailing list; we are active on social media, with more than 1,100 Twitter followers.

recognise the efforts of those who have helped make our area a better place to live and do business.

Developing skills We take an active interest in development of skills and young people in the region. In particular, we cooperate where possible with Bucks Skills Hub and Young Enterprise.

Social networking events

Having fun

Join us

Some of our events, such as our summer garden party, Golf Day and Christmas event, are very social occasions, conducive to making new friends as well as business contacts.

More than 25 new members joined the Chamber in the first half of 2016. We are a happy, growing and inclusive network. We welcome guests to most of our events, but are always keen to encourage new members, with the closer relationships that membership brings. If you would like to take a more proactive role with the Chamber, volunteering is an opportunity to raise your business and personal profile, contribute knowledge and skills in a meaningful way, and even to develop new knowledge and skills. We are open to ideas for new initiatives. Following the Brexit vote, 2016/2017 may be a time for cultivating links with similar organisations in Europe, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d need volunteers to help â&#x20AC;&#x201C; any takers?

Chesham’s traditional yards Our town’s historic yards were often associated with public houses or light industry, offering a secure place away from the High Street to carry out manual work and to take delivery of goods. Most yards incorporated small workers’ cottages, many of which had been declared unfit for habitation by the early 20th century. Chesham lost several of these backwaters to the slum clearances; for example Townfield Yard and Duck Alley – notorious in their time for insanitary living conditions. Their potential for conversion to desirable residences and characterful shops was hidden from those who lacked the necessary vision or foresight to save them. The yards that remain represent an important feature of today’s town.

The images below are of Lums Yard and its original picturesque dwellings, before they fell into neglect, having been abandoned, and then the conversion to boutiquestyle shops. In the 1980s this renovation project created Darsham Walk – originally a passageway through the heart of the terraced cottages, revealing tiny, low-beamed and somewhat impractical retail spaces, later readjusted to have individual access from the yard and larger, financially viable floor plans. Across the road in Laceys Yard, the buildings date back to 1649. Several generations of the Lacey family stitched saddles and harnesses within from the late 18th century. Herbert Cox joined them in the 1890s and eventually took over the saddlery business in 1911. His son and grandson succeeded him, and the buildings of Laceys Yard are still owned and cared for by the family. This care is reflected in the attractive shops and gardens created by the tenants and enjoyed by the public. The 17th century half-timbered building within Francis Yard has survived intact. During the early 19th century it was the site of The Angel Inn. It was also, quite possibly, the shop of Roger Crab, Chesham’s ‘mad hatter’ and famous English hermit, who lived 1621 to 1680. Currently, Francis Yard is home to the Drawingroom art gallery, café and music venue. Remarkably this is not the first music scene to be hosted in Francis Yard. The Trap Door Club at the Botley House stable block saw performances from many renowned folk singers between 1964 and 1967, including Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel. It would be good to see other town yards brought back to life. Tap Yard and Lewins Yard would make prime candidates. In 1998 Chesham Town Council relocated its Town Hall from the historic Malt House in Elgiva Lane to purpose-built premises in Parsonage Lane at the far end of Star Yard car park, as part of the Sainsbury’s redevelopment plans. The entrance to Catling’s Garage was demolished and a new access from the High Street created with the name Baines Walk, in recognition of the local politician and historian Arnold Baines. An extract from the new book ‘Chesham in Living Memory’. 80
