Yellow Dog
A new website which highlights a new way of letting other dog owners know if your dog is not approachable or needs space whilst out on a walk. The link is www.yellowdoguk.co.uk.

A simple yellow ribbon, bandanna or similar on the dogs collar or lead is a warning to others, that for various reasons, the dog may need space.

Age Concern IN-TOUCH Telephone Support Service
Age Concern Hertfordshire have recently launched a telephone service supporting people aged 50 plus with health and wellbeing needs.

In Touch provides a free countywide telephone service tailored to support older people who are currently not receiving such from statutory services because their needs may not reach the required level.

Trained staff and volunteers will provide support, for example:
Following a fall
Following a stay in hospital
After a bereavement

When a move to sheltered accommodation is being considered or has recently taken place.

The In-Touch Team is available Monday – Friday 9am to 4.30pm and can be contacted by telephone on 01992-629358 or 01992 634964 or by e-mail .

Horses’ Meadow Play Equipment
IMPORTANT PLEASE READ The Parish Council is looking to replace the ‘Igloo’ climbing frame with an intriguingly different climbing product ‘Pick Up Sticks’. Quirkily angled – with twisted wooden beams intricately interwoven randomly at all angles, it has the added challenge of nets for balancing, scrambling and swinging. It is aimed primarily for 8 year-olds to teenagers, who will benefit physically and mentally from this climbing challenge. There are various steel reinforced rope additions to make this timber play structure even more exciting and intriguing.

To be able to proceed with this project, the Parish Council will need to secure a substantial grant, one condition of which is to demonstrate that we have consulted the community and received positive feedback.

Please – Dads, Mums and children – contact Geraldine Ward, Clerk to the Council, by email  to register your support.
