  • Amersham News Views and Information News Feed: Workaid Exhibition – How to Recycle and Help Others – Amersham Museum 2nd May – 3rd June

    Workaid Exhibition Teaches us How to Recycle and Help Others
    Amersham Museum 2nd May – 3rd June 2018

    The achievements of local charity Workaid, which repairs objects for re-use in Africa, will be celebrated in a new exhibition at Amersham Museum. The exhibition, which has been created in partnership with Workaid, will run from 2nd May – 3rd June 2018 when the museum is open, Wednesday – Sunday and Bank Holiday Mondays 12 noon – 4.30pm. Visitors can find out how the organisation repairs objects, the benefits their work delivers and hear from some of the volunteers why they enjoy helping.

    Workaid first opened in 1986 in response to the famine in Ethiopia. They have grown from a group of 30 to over 250 volunteers today. Their mission was to help people help themselves and stop the cycle of poverty. They did this by collecting unwanted tools and equipment such as sewing and knitting machines. They restored them, so they could be re-used and sent to well researched projects in East Africa. No money is ever sent.
    General Manager of Workaid Rob Levine notes: “We are delighted that the Amersham Museum has decided to showcase the wonderful work that Workaid does! We hope that the exhibit creates more interest and enthusiasm for what both we and the Museum do.”

    Workaid first started in a shed in Little Chalfont but has now expanded to the premises of the Old Boot Factory in Chesham, still run by a dedicated team of volunteers. They now have their own shop, craft centre and help people with learning disabilities, as well as donating tools to projects in the UK. This exhibition tells their story over the last 32 years, focusing on the benefits of volunteering for both the volunteer and the recipient. There will be tools that people can handle as well as oral histories from the volunteers themselves as well as a range of archives and exhibits.
    The exhibition is part of a wider museum project, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, which celebrates local people’s stories from the 20th century.

  • Amersham News Views and Information News Feed: Bedroom Farce – Presented by New Penny Theatre Company – 15-18 May

    Bedroom Farce

    Presented by New Penny Theatre Company

    After “NOISES OFF” & “RELATIVELY SPEAKING” New Penny Theatre Company hits the stage at the Elgiva once more with Alan Ayckbourn’s hilarious hit comedy “BEDROOM FARCE”. 

    Set in the seventies, we visit three bedrooms over one night and the next morning, following the story of four married couples. Delia and Ernest, the oldest couple, are getting ready to celebrate their wedding anniversary; the youngest couple Malcolm and Kate are preparing for their housewarming party.  The other two couples, Jan and Nick and Susannah and Trevor are invited to this party.

    This play explores the differences in relationships between the younger and older generations and captures unlikely issues that may strain the relationships even further. Observe our 4 couples in this  absurd and confusing comedy, comparing and contrasting the differences between couples young and old, and the different troubles they encounter. This play had certain sadistic aspects involving cheating, and lying, which evolves into forgiveness and devotion. Although the play may seem to lead into a corner of despair and heartbreak, it substitutes the hard truths of certain relationships into relationships that may have a chance at survival.

    Production and ticket details:

    Tickets: £15

    15-18 May – Elgiva Chesham – 01494  582900 http://www.elgiva.com

    Concessions Tuesday Evening 2 for the price of 1, Saturday Matinee £13

    Get your act together!  Sister Act – The Musical – Coming to Chesham 18-21 April 2018

    Award winning Chesham Musical Theatre Company brings a fantastic new production of “Sister Act” to life, based on the Whoopi Goldberg film of the same name.  It tells the story of nightclub singer, Delores van Cartier, who witnesses a murder carried out by her gangster boyfriend.  She must go into witness protection as a nun – a church is the last place the crooks will look!  The church she hides in is in dire need of funds to keep going, so she is tasked with teaching the choir to sing.  A product of her own success, the choir goes from strength to strength but will potentially blow her cover!

    Performances nightly at 7.45pm plus Saturday matinee 2.30pm. Tickets available now from www.elgiva.com  from £14.50.  Great idea for a team night out, some fabulous tunes and cheaper than London prices.  Please come along to support and have a good laugh!

    The purpose is a to make local news available for non commercial use.

    It relies on News feeds from Councils, BBC, Police, Local Blogs, Local news.In order to add extra content and services our external links and displays are free.

    As the blog is to promote local news free and is non commercial non profit making network it would not be possible to pay Press Association Commercial licence fees for content because it is not set up to make a financial gain.

    A recent court case agrees commercial users can be charged for content that is resold for profit. However non commercial blogs etc would not be charged.

    However it appears some press associations are getting rather greedy and are chasing private bloggers for fees if they are using some local newspaper feeds.

    They appear to be using a debt collection business called Buchanan Clark & Wells of Glasgow who are sending made up charges for use of copyright material.

    If you are a private blogger having the same problem I would like to hear from you.

  • So we are on way way out of The European Union

    The option to Vote has now driven us out of The Union.

    We now have to take the advantage and not carry on blaming ourselves or others.It was a shock the way it went BUT GET OVER IT.

    The European Union is an organisation that tries to represent Europe.
    It is now nervous that a country has dared to take control of themselves.

    It will not be easy to deal with them because they want us to fail.
    We will not fail and maybe others will split away.That is their biggest fear.

    Northern Ireland now needs to be used as a trade Area to negotiate with Europeans direct.Taking advantage of its doorstep location with Southern Ireland. The UK needs to lower corporation rates to be the same as Ireland.This will be an advantage for all business.

    We need to create a small coordinating and marketing organisation and use CBI and Group Trading organisations to promote Great Britain.The commonwealth needs to be a bigger part of our trade. Our main objective must be to trade globally.
    The social legislation and general laws need to be rewritten and but back into British Law. Maybe a 5 year project.There is going to be lots to sort. In the meantime we can still use Modified European Law and call it that.

  • 8 Week Mindfulness Course plus retreat day
    What is Mindfulness? Modern mindfulness is a non-religious form of meditation. Whilst most definitely having roots in ancient Eastern philosophies, mindfulness was adapted and developed in more recent times to help people manage their chronic stress, anxiety, depression and pain, by regularly practising a variety of mindfulness practices that can be integrated into modern day life. The practices can be done sitting, lying, walking, on the bus - anywhere - so they are suitable for all ages and very accessible for everybody. You do not have to sit in a lotus position, transcendentally chant or be in complete silence. However, if you did wish to do those things, that is absolutely fine, as long as you are doing them mindfully! Through mindfulness practice we can learn how to break the cycle of habitual thoughts, negative thought patterns and behaviours by becoming more aware of the triggers that lead us to them. Mindfulness helps us to reduce and manage stress and anxiety levels more effectively, helps us to cope with managing pain more effectively and overall it helps to build more resilience and improve our wellbeing in general, providing a more peaceful and postive outlook on life. Of course, you do not have to be suffering from stress to reap the benefits of mindfulness. Mindfulness offers a chance to simply stop sleepwalking through life and instead live it by being fully present in the moment, helping you to you remember your day, your life, finding moments of joy from the simplest of things, each and every day. What are the Benefits of Mindfulness? Mindfulness is a 'gym for the mind' and through regular mindfulness practice most people will see an improvement in the following: stress and anxiety levels chronic pain management breaking habitual thoughts reacting in a more positive way attention \ concentration awareness patience memory sleep resilience general wellbeing N.B - Whilst a research study shows that regular mindfulness practice can significantly reduce relapse rates for depression, it is best not to take part in an 8 week course whilst suffering from depression or other mental health issue and to wait until you are feeling better. The Course A comprehensive 8 week course learning the foundations of mindfulness, the science that supports it and a variety of mindfulness practices that will help you to cultivate a more mindful way of life. This course is a combination of the two 8-week models, Mindfulness Based Stress Reflief (MBSR) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) developed at the University of Massachusetts and Oxford University. When are where is the course held? Tuesdays starting 17th April thru til 12th June (not including half-term week 29th May) 19.30 - 21.30 Manor Green School Elizabeth Hawkes Way Maidenhead Berkshire SL6 3EQ. What is the retreat day? The retreat day will be 10.00 - 15.00 on a Sunday. During the day I will guide you through all of the practices that you will have learnt during the 8-week course, and there will be some periods of silence. This day is not only a blissful opportunity to enjoy some peace and calm but also a chance to ask any questions you may have. Fruit snacks and teas will be provided but please bring a light lunch with you, along with any meditation stools, cushions and blankets. Chairs will be provided. There will be a number of retreat days scheduled for 2018 and you are free to choose which one you would like to attend.
