Art installation, Lowndes Park 20th June. Buckinghamshire County Council, in partnership with Chiltern District Council and Chesham in Transition launched a campaign to encourage the residents of Chesham to take a step back and look at their lifestyle with a view to making a 'Change for Chesham'.

Using plastic bottles - made to look like vehicles - we represented the traffic issue in Chesham's Broad St / Berkhamstead Road during peak hours. This was a success, with a good number of schools taking part.
