The Gatsby and Miller hairdressing salon in Amersham always like to be involved in community events
and they have really put their skates on to make sure the town’s combined Showcase and Small Business
Saturday event on December 5 will be a huge success yet again.
The salon is sponsoring a skating rink which will be a stunning centrepiece on the
forecourt of St Michael’s church on Sycamore Road, at the heart of the festivities.
An impressive 10 metres square, it will be operating from 10am to 6pm, with 35
skating slots available on the hour and half-hour.
Tickets will be £8, with all profits going to local charity The
Hospice of St Francis.
The annual Showcase, organised by the Amersham Action Group (AAG) attracts hundreds of visitors and
is a family-focused event, with a Christmas theme, lots of colourful stalls and lively attractions for children,
but the skating rink is making its debut this year and is believed to be the only one coming to the area.
“We believe very strongly in putting something back into the community so we are delighted to be
sponsoring the skating rink,” said John Roads, Director of Gatsby and Miller. “It’s going to be huge fun for
all ages and a perfect way to get into the festive spirit in the run-up to Christmas.”
Chris Wilson, chairman of the Amersham Action Group, said the Showcase was timed to coincide with
Small Business Saturday, which celebrates the strength and diversity of local small businesses of all kinds.
“John has embraced the event from the outset and has been hugely positive about it all,” he said. “It’s a
great celebration of Amersham on the Hill and the skating rink which Gatsby and Miller is sponsoring is
going to be a huge attraction for this area.”
Tickets for the skating rink will be available from the Gatsby & Miller website from
Monday 12th October.
