Tony Cul­ver­house said: “We have cho­sen another panel of in­ter­est­ing and di­verse speak­ers and we hope that you have lots you want to grill them about. It is usu­ally a lively evening of de­bate, so please try to join us.”

Last year, ques­tions asked in­cluded whether a by­pass would solve Che­sham’s traf­fic prob­lems, how Che­sham town cen­tre can be re­vived and how to deal with the prob­lem of geese in Lown­des Park.

The con­sen­sus over Che­sham’s traf­fic prob­lems was that a by­pass would not solve the traf­fic prob­lems, since sur­veys have shown that the vast ma­jor­ity is lo­cal traf­fic.

It was felt that Che­sham town cen­tre needs more en­cour­age­ment for peo­ple to visit to help re­vive it.

How­ever, re­gard­ing the geese ques­tion, public opin­ion was sharply di­vided be­tween those who liked them and those who felt they should be culled.

Ques­tions for this year’s panel should be sub­mit­ted in ad­vance of the meet­ing to pro­gramme@ che­sham­so­ci­ety.org.uk by Satur­day, Septem­ber 12.

Ques­tions will be taken from the floor on the night if there is time.

Tea and cof­fee will be served from 7.30pm with the ques­tions start­ing at 8pm.

En­try costs £1 for mem­bers and £2 for non­mem­bers.
