Town enjoys day of heritage
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.”
