    This year's theme for Mental Health Awareness Week is Loneliness. Almost all of us have felt lonely at one time or another. It's a natural feeling and not a mental health condition in itself. So why focus on it? Because unless we acknowledge it, talk about it and take appropriate action, it can lead to a deterioration in health.

  • Amersham HSBC
    Petition: Mar 28, 2022

    HSBC have already closed branches in Chesham and Chalfont St Peter . The loss of this branch of HSBC is the latest in a string of closures which have hit Amersham in recent years. The town's Santander branch previously closed its doors in June 2019, and TSB shut up shop a year later, in June 2020. Similarly, Chesham has lost multiple banks in recent years, with both Halifax and Barclays branches closing in 2021. Local MP Sarah Green has asked HSBC for a meeting to see if anything can be done to save the branch from closure.

    Life long member Tony Weedon recently passed away after a short illness.

    Tony was born in Chesham Bois and apart from University and National Service lived in the Amersham area all his life. He worked for a company in Chesham.

    He joined the Liberal Party when he was at Durham University and remained a Liberal and Liberal Democrat member for the rest of his life. Tony was one of the Young Liberals in the early 50's and did more than his fair share of delivering and canvassing in those lean years.

  • Ukraine Flag

    So many of us have been watching in horror as the unfolding war on the Eastern edge of Europe has unfolded, we've watched the news and wept as we see people fleeing, cowering in the shelters and having their lives ripped apart. We've also marvelled at the bravery and tenacity of the Ukrainian people as they fight to save the country they love from Putin's army.

    Tuesday 8 March marks International Women's Day. It presents an opportunity to reflect on equality in society. Women experience systematic inequalities in many aspects of life, for example, conflict, the workplace and in healthcare.

    We are all acutely aware that the women of Ukraine are suffering terribly, as many are forced to flee as refugees with vulnerable children and elderly relatives, leaving behind their menfolk and many other women to defend Ukranian democracy against the terrorising tyranny of Putin and his military forces. One is struck by how, when faced with a truly appalling situation, we come together with our European neighbours, in solidarity and support for the victims of Putin's evil dictatorship. I cannot help but wonder if the world would be a much better place, if power was much more equally shared between men and women. It is well established that women as a whole prefer to work and lead through consensus rather than conflict. When does taking a collaborative approach result in women being held back?
