All my life I have had the pleasure of residing in the wonderful town of High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire. Indeed my ancestors have resided in Wycombe and the surrounding area for several centuries.

During my lifetime there have been many changes take place in our town. At the present time the town is changing faster than ever before however I feel that not all the changes are for the better.

I would like to share my experience of life in Wycombe with you through this blog to hopefully raise awareness of the problems the residents face in their daily lives.
