Samantha Amend, 31, from Marlow, the Marlow Half Marathon women’s champion and mother-of-two.

“I have three important resolutions that are long-term commitments. My first resolution will be to achieve a qualifying time for future GB selection in the marathon. Hopefully, in the not-too-distant future, I would like to aim for my Olympic dream which is to represent my country in the marathon.

"Resolution two will be to extend my running group 'Reactivate' to more than its current member count of 33. And resolution three is to spend more time with family.”

Annie Mulady, 44, president of the Marlow Chamber of Trade.

“I want to have as much fun as I did in 2010. Last year I managed to get the work/home/life balance a lot better and I want to continue that into next year.”

Emma Hunter, 28, works at Q2 Salon in High Wycombe.

"I think it has to be to save more money, I've definitely been spending too much this Christmas. I'm also getting married in Las Vegas in June so I'll have to start saving the pennies up for that."

Jamie Gibbs, 28, a facilities manager from Flackwell Heath.

"One of my New Year's resolutions is to get fit! I used to run a lot and enter local races but it's been a couple of years since my last one, so I definitely will get fit again in the New Year."

Dave Hampton, 51, a 'Carbon Coach', of Hyde Green, Marlow.

“I believe in having them (resolutions) and I definitely believe more in keeping them.

“I suppose mine is to be more inspirational about cutting my own carbon. I don't know what the secret is to keeping them, I suppose it's motivation.

“In this case cutting out carbon emissions is about the future of the kids being worth it.

“My hope for the New Year is a gradual outbreak of common sense on climate change issues.”

Former High Wycombe Mayor Ted Collins, 81, retired, from Marlow.

“I haven't got too many bad habits any more at my time of life.

“But if I was to be giving up something it might be worrying about Chelsea, I've been a supporter for 43 years.

“I also wish better luck for Wycombe Wanderers, I want to see them back in League One. You have to have an awful lot of discipline to keep your resolutions, for example when I gave up smoking it was because I couldn't afford it. You need to have the motivation.”
