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.
