Checking out No. 10 ….. and Chequers!!

Visit to Chequers!

Chequers in Buckinghamshire, which since 1921 has traditionally been the country retreat for the Prime Ministers, opened its great doors on Friday 5th July 2013 to welcome guests of Thames Valley Partnership and New Leaf to a small fundraising event.

Guests were treated to a rare viewing of this beautiful house, with its many and varied historical treasures, which was offered by kind permission of the PM and Mrs Cameron to help support and highlight the work of the charity. The event was sponsored by Amey Plc. Visitors included supporters and volunteers as well as strategic or commercial contacts from across the three Thames Valley counties and some national. Musical entertainment from students at local Aylesbury Music Centre added to the occasion.
