THERE is such a won­der­ful ar­ray of tra­di­tional Christ­mas events to look for­ward to – here are just some of the treats you can en­joy in the Chilterns.

En­joy carol singing on the move with Chin­nor and Princes Ris­bor­ough Rail­way, which has a spe­cial evening with a lo­cal choir on board, which leaves Chin­nor sta­tion at 7pm on Satur­day.

Book tick­ets by call­ing 01844 354 117.

Make this Christ­mas even more spe­cial with some good­ies from the Ten Mile Menu company, which stocks lo­cally sourced prod­ucts, such as free range bronze Copas tur­keys and chick­ens, fes­tive or­ganic veg­etable boxes, Kirsty’s Kitchen hand-made free range, soft-cen­tred Scotch eggs and sausage rolls.

Place your or­ders at www.ten­mile­menu. co.uk/chilterns-christ­mas.html.

Are you look­ing for an event that is a lit­tle bit dif­fer­ent to en­ter­tain work col­leagues or friends this Christ­mas? Why not book a fun wine tast­ing from only £25 per per­son, in­clud­ing de­li­cious deli plat­ters to ac­com­pany your wines at a restau­rant called No.2 Pound Street, in Wen­dover.

Up­grade to in­clude sparkling wine and smoked sal­mon on ar­rival for £40 per per­son. Dates are filling up fast, so call 01296 585 022 now to book your party in.

A book that is both well-writ­ten and beau­ti­fully il­lus­trated, is the guide to the fas­ci­nat­ing story of wood­land his­tory in the Chilterns, and what all the mys­te­ri­ous hol­lows and banks to be found there ac­tu­ally mean. Lots of pho­tos show the great va­ri­ety of his­toric fea­tures to be found.

There is a wealth of in­for­ma­tion for both the in­ter­ested lay­man and the pro­fes­sional want­ing more tech­ni­cal de­tail, with use­ful bi­b­li­og­ra­phy and list of rel­e­vant web­sites.

The Cul­tural Her­itage of Chiltern Woods is writ­ten by John Mor­ris, di­rec­tor of Chiltern Wood­lands Project and an ex­pert on the sub­ject.

Avail­able through the Chilterns Con­ser­va­tion Board web­site – go to

www.chiltern­saonb.org/shop.html.

A Christ­mas Wish Tree is an un­usual but lovely way to wish some­one the best
