HER­ITAGE day per­for­mances ranged from march­ing bands to a me­dieval bat­tle.

The whole of Old Amer­sham was packed with visi­tors en­joy­ing them­selves at the an­nual her­itage day on Sun­day, Septem­ber 13.

Com­mu­nity of­fi­cer at Amer­sham Town Coun­cil, Steve Catanach, said: “There were so many great per­for­mances and at­trac­tions on of­fer through­out the day from march­ing bands to a me­dieval bat­tle, birds of prey to Mor­ris danc­ing along with a fan­tas­tic dis­play of clas­sic cars and steam trac­tion en­gines which are al­ways pro­vide a mas­sive draw. The town coun­cil would like to thank ev­ery­one that was in­volved, in­clud­ing our Bob Higgins who was a big hit as Amer­sham Town Crier for the day.”
