Crowds set for Olympics action
HUNDREDS of people are expected to pour into a town park this weekend to watch the Olympics on a giant screen and enjoy a host of activities.
On Saturday (August 11) an 80ft screen will be switched on in King George V Field in Amersham so members of the community can enjoy a range of London 2012 events.
The men's football final, women's cross country cycling and men's 10m diving platform semi-final are all due to take place between 11am and 7pm.
And if the big screen action does not grab your attention for the whole day there will also be a stage featuring performances from local bands and artists ranging from the acoustic and mellow sounds created by youth group Rafe's Place to the Amersham Brass Band.
Chalfont St Giles Youth Club's street dance crew Misunderstood will also perform and there will also be films and animations created and produced by young local film-makers.
For those inspired to enjoy more sporting activities there will be skateboard demonstrations, zuma classes, a climbing wall and squash and racketball.
Finally, street artists will display their work and there wil be traditional arts and crafts stall.
A special track for wheelchair access has been laid on the site and a big screen viewing area. Food and drink vendors are selling refreshments in the park and the Chiltern Youth Projects will provide a cafe and a barbecue.
Those that attend are also welcome to bring their own food or picnic too.
Free parking is limited at this event and is available at Sycamore Road car park, Rickmansworth Road, Amersham Community Centre, Chiltern Avenue and Woodside Junior School, Mitchell Walk.
