I have just opened a photo frame to scan an old photo that is inside. I was quite amazed to find a copy of the Buckinhamshire Advertiser inside as backing paper. It is dated Friday April 25 1952. It has a few stories but one of interest is a Light aeroplane crashing at Whan Cross, Chalfont St Peter (presumably now Chalfont Heights Scout Camp).
 
Ernest Clarke a 23 year old Gerrards Cross Porter from Chalfont St Peter is mentioned for 'borrowing a car for a ride around on his day off.'
 
One for Dan Webb - There is a picture of Learie Constantine and John Arlott at the Chalfont St Peter Footbal and Supporters Clubs Annual Dinner.
 
Quite interesting.

Wow - what a find!

Does the Buckingham Advertiser still exist?

Do you know if Chalfont St Peter had a newspaper, especially around 1951, as I am looking to find some information on an incident that occurred then.

With thanks.

Hi there,
 
Im researching The Buckinghamshire Advertiser for an university assignment.
Im looking to find out how it originated and the changes that it has been through over the last decade.
 
Im also interested if the paper has had any direct influence on issues of public interest within the community, or of any champaigns it has run.
 
Also if anyone as any opinions of the quality of news within the paper, wheather it has improved or become worse, over the last ten years since reduction in staff adn mergers with larger organisations, that would be highly interesting to me.
 
Any help would be great, thank you

As the paper's name suggests it is more of a medium to advertise services and products.
The balance between news and adverts has changed over the years to a more advert based paper.
I believe they closed down their CSP office a few years ago and amalganated with their Chesham cousins,hence losing the local appeal.
 It is predominately CSP news that gets in there but very little.
Good luck with your project.

The Chesham office closed within a year of the CstP one closing, they are now far far away!
