Thousands enjoy heritage fun day
Thousands of people visit town for fun-packed day
MORE than 7,000 people attended the annual Heritage Day in Amersham on September 9.
The fun-packed day featured marching bands, medieval battles, birds of prey, Morris dancing, Amersham A Cappella, a horticultural show and funfairs. There was also a display of classic cars and steam traction engines.
Town clerk Steve Catanach said: “The town council would like to thanks residents, visitors and businesses who supported Heritage Day.
“Our gratitude also to the Amersham Society and Chesham Society, who sponsored the heritage buses, the Rotary Club of Amersham, who helped marshal, and The Entertainer, for sponsoring the event. With some many great performances and attractions on display, we hope there was something for everyone.”
More than 60 stalls included demonstrations of wood-turning, chair caning and weaving.
Heritage buses carried crowds from Chesham and Little Chalfont to Old Amersham, while vintage steam trains brought visitors from London.
