Residents across Bucks have been tasked with deciding which community project is deserving of a top cash prize.

A total of four Amersham projects have reached the final of Amersham Decides – which sees residents vote on how much county council funding shortlisted schemes will be awarded.

A £9,000 pot of cash will be shared between the four finalists, with the winner receiving £4,000, and second, third and fourth places will be awarded £2,500, £1,500 and £1,000 respectively.

Projects in the running are Amersham Mobile Museum, which hopes to create a mobile exhibition to reach isolated residents, and a conservation area in Old Amersham Memorial Gardens.

Citizens Advice Service, which provides support and advice for vulnerable and isolated people, is also set to receive a portion of the cash, along with Savvy E-Safety – a project which sees students help older people stay safe online.

Chair of the Amersham Local Area Forum, Gareth Williams, said: “This is such an exciting project for Amersham and I’m delighted that these four very worthy schemes will all get a share of the cash. What’s really great about Amersham Decides is that it’s local people themselves who will decide how this money is spent.

“All four of these projects will make a valuable contribution to our local community – but make sure you have your say on which should get the most money. You’ve got until Friday 27 July to cast your vote”.
