Why is it called the Jean Archer Award? Jean Archer was well known as Amersham’s first Lady Mayor and a keen local historian. She lived in the town all her life and wrote many books about its history and local people. She was also responsible for re-starting the Town Band and helped to found both the Amersham Society and the Museum.
