Chiltern Open Air Museum s famous Halloween Spectacular returns on Friday 1st November.

For one night only, they’ll be opening their doors for a spooktacular family Halloween event that sees their historic buildings decorated and inhabited by costumed characters. This year the event will have a new spectacular fire performance with fire pits set out in the Museum s event field and a special timed spooky horse display.

Spooky stories will be told around the fire of the Iron Age roundhouse, you can grab some treats by visiting some of the historic houses before warming yourselves by the fire and toasting marshmallows.

Around the Museum grounds there will be lots of Halloween-themed crafts, activities and games for the whole family to enjoy. The very brave can explore the scary woodland walk   but beware of the monsters that might be there in the dark! Younger children will enjoy the not-so-spooky walk and family fun storytelling.

Hot food and drinks will be available to purchase on the night, and children (and adults!) are encouraged to dress up for the event in Halloween costumes with a prize for the best!

This is an unmissable evening of spooky fun for all ages in the very unique and atmospheric setting of the Museum s historic buildings and woods.

Chiltern Name Change For Local Charity  

Chiltern Name Change For Local Charity

 

A major local charity has started 2019 with a brand-new name.

The South Bucks Branch of the national Motor Neurone Disease Association* (mndassociation.org) will now officially be known as the Chiltern Branch. The Chiltern branch helps local people living with Motor Neurone Disease and their families with grant support and advice.

Motor Neurone Disease is an extremely debilitating, terminal condition which affects the brain and nerves. The MND Association offers accurate, professional, accessible information and practical day-to-day support to enable people with MND to live with their diagnosis and achieve the best quality of life possible.

Graham Read, Chair of the Chiltern Branch, said: “Our previous name South Bucks did not totally relate to the area we cover. We needed a name which was more synonymous with our local area. We are officially launching the new branch on January 21st at Cedar Barn, Barn Lane, Hazlemere, HP15 7BQ at 12.30pm. We will be looking to enlist the support of local organisations/companies in our quest to improve the lives of local people living with this awful disease. We already receive significant support from Tesco at Loudwater.”

*The MND Association actively campaigns to ensure everyone has access to the best possible care, no matter where they live.

  • By working in partnership with the NHS and statutory services we help improve standards of care for people with MND.
  • The MND Association regularly holds events to continue to educate health and social care professionals (HSCPs) to enable them to achieve excellence in care for people living with MND.
  • With a network of MND Care Centres, our branch and group volunteers and dedication to improving standards of care, people with MND can achieve the highest quality of life possible.
  • The MND Association will continue to fund and promote ground-breaking research around the world to identify treatments and find the cure for the disease.
  • Only through collaboration will a cure for MND be discovered. Therefore, the MND Association will promote international research collaboration and organise the world’s largest conference for MND researchers and clinicians.
