Get your hands dirty for hospice
THE countdown has begun to our inaugural Mud Pack Challenge, which takes place at Ashridge House in just 10 days’ time on Sunday, October 19 at 10am.
We are so grateful to everyone in and around Chesham and Amersham who has signed up to get filthy and raise funds for us, but we would dearly love some more marshals to guide people round the wet and muddy obstacles on the scenic parkland route.
The scenery will be gorgeous, the atmosphere will be buzzing and there will be free coffee and doughnuts for all volunteers! If you’re free and think you can help, please email mudpack@ stfrancis.org.uk or call 01442 869 555.
The BBC’s Antiques Roadshow expert John Bly is coming to Berkhamsted later this month to host a special valuation evening at pre-loved furniture showroom Returned to Glory.
The local resident furniture expert will be at the Northbridge Road store on Wednesday, October 15 from 5.30pm to 9pm, casting his trained eye over anything punters bring him from small furniture items, silver, metal, bronze and glassware to porcelain, ceramics, enamels, ivory and toys.
Everyone is invited and refreshments, including wine, will be served and guests can bring a maximum of two items per person, each to be valued by John in return for a £5 donation to the Hospice.
