They do look amazing. As Anita says thanks to all who pay for and actually do the hard work. It's very much appreciated and really lifts the spirits to see the flags looking so great and the village looking so vibrant. Shop local! Keep the village alive and the flags flying!

I think the flags look great too. On another subject - are you all aware of the plans in for approval with Bucks County Council to create a waste transfer station where the Amersham dump is now on London Road East? Over 2000 tonnes of waste a week in and out and at least another 100 HGVs along the A413 every day? Urgent that we object....

I think the flags look great - however the one outside my window has broken free of it's moorings (string tied to bottom of flag) and gave me a fright when it blew up past my window!

Irrationally thought it was a person who was hovering at the window!

Feast Day - 30th June – Latest Update

This year’s Feast Day event will take place on Gold Hill Common on Saturday 30th June starting at 10.15am.

104 stalls will surround the Fairweather Insurance Arena providing a range of goods, activities and information on local clubs, societies and organisations.

There will also be a fun fair and a traditional Punch and Judy show sponsored by Chalfont Osteopathic Practice (Preston Lee).

The Fairweather Insurance arena will host several activities during the day including school dancing and gymnastics displays, a falconry demonstration and a classic car drive through.

The Parish Council stage will showcase a number of singing and dancing acts during the day and is the setting for the evening concert by Fleetwood Bac, supported by the Midnight Rebel band. The evening concert starts at 7.30pm

The evening will culminate with the lighting of the Jubilee Beacon by the Parish Council at around 10.30pm.

Car parking on the day is free in the Church Lane car park and a shuttle bus will operate between there and Gold Hill Common throughout the day. Please note that there is no car-parking (except for pass holders and those with disabled blue badges) on site.

Programmes (sponsored by RWS Group) are now on sale from the Parish Church offices in Church Lane and Gold Hill Baptist Church on Gold Hill, the Stationery Store and Richard Adams pharmacy in Marketplace, the Handy Stores Mini Mart on Gold Hill and the Community Library in the High Street. Priced at just £1.50, every penny raised goes towards local good causes. Programmes will, of course, be available to purchase on the day.

The organisers would like to thank all of the other sponsors for their support – the Parish Church, Gold Hill Baptist Church, Tim’s Dairy, Thorpe House and Kingscote School and Rachael Bree at the White Hart for funding the new Feast Day flags that look fantastic flying in the village.

The organisers are looking to make this year’s event the “greenest” yet and, working with Change4Chalfont and Chiltern District Council, will be seeking to recycle as much litter and refuse as possible from the day. Those attending are asked to dispose of litter sensibly in the bins provided or take it home with them. Last year over 4 tons of rubbish had to be removed from the Common.

In this regard, volunteers are sought for helping with the Sunday morning clear up which will start at 8am. Just turn up. The more volunteers that assist, the quicker the Common can be cleared.

Full details of the event can be found at -

The organising committee would also welcome interest from anyone willing to contribute towards the organising of the 2013 event and can be contacted on -
