Hearing Dogs Christmas Market – Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th November

Hearing Dogs Christmas Market

Local charity Hearing Dogs for Deaf People is preparing
for the most magical season of all with a wonderful
Christmas Market.

The Saunderton-based charity is opening its doors to
Christmas shoppers and dog-lovers for two days of
yuletide fun, with plenty of activities and gift stalls
to get all the family into the festive spirit.

We are ready to kick-start the Christmas season with the
return of our much-loved Christmas Market at our Hearing
Dogs headquarters, nestled in the heart of
Buckinghamshire countryside.

We will have plenty of stalls providing beautiful hand-
crafted gifts and stocking fillers to tick off your
shopping lists as well as a special visit from Father
Christmas who will be in his grotto to give presents with
the help of his special elves and rein-dogs! And, if
that’s not enough, everyone will receive a complimentary
mince pie and warm mulled punch. So, dust off your
Christmas jumpers and join us for a magical weekend!

The Christmas Market will raise vital funds so that more
deaf people can be partnered with a life-changing hearing
dog. The Charity does not receive any government funding
and relies entirely on donations to continue its work.

Amersham Museum New Dinky Toy Exhibition

Amersham Museum Opens New Dinky Toy Exhibition

Amersham Museum’s extensive collection of Dinky Toys will be on display for the first time this autumn. From 18th October visitors to the museum will be able to see the museum’s collection of over 150 toys, on display together for the first time.

The museum was given the majority of the collection in 2006, when it was transferred from Wandsworth Museum. Originally amassed by local resident Chris Salaman, the vehicles were purchased from Butler’s toy shop in old Amersham in the late 1950s and early 1960s when he was a child. The collection includes cars, heavy goods vehicles and military vehicles and is complemented by a large number of Meccano magazines and Dinky booklets which advertised the toys. There are toys manufactured at the main Binns Road factory in Liverpool as well as those produced in France. There are also some modern replicas of both the British and French models.

Visitors to the exhibition can explore the collection, share their Dinky memories and try to order the cars in chronological order on the Dinky timeline. Younger visitors can participate in Dinky themed craft activities. On Saturday 11th November there will be a special Dinky Day, with activities, talks and an opportunity to meet Chris and find out about his collection.

The exhibition runs Wednesday-Sunday 12 -4.30pm from 18th October to Sunday 26th November.

The museum is open Wednesday – Sunday and Bank Holiday Mondays, 12 noon – 4.30pm. Admission is £3 adults, children free. Many of the activities for families are free after admission.
