World War One Commemorative Service

WW1

A service was held at the war memorial in the churchyard of St Peter's church on Sunday 3 August to commemorate the centenary of the start of the First World War.

These are the words of introduction:

'We have gathered around this memorial today to remember all those from this community who were caught up in the courageous but tragic events of the First World War. We remember those who were killed in action, or by disease, the bereaved, the lost, the families which were shattered, the wounded, maimed and injured, those who held in silence unspeakable memories of warfare.'

There was a reading of names of the roll of honour from the village hall of those who served in the war, not only those who gave their lives in the fighting.

At the end of the service, those attending were invited to view a display of memorabilia in the church

Bus Service Consultation
Herts County Council have just launched a consultation into the financial support that they provides for bus services in Hertfordshire. This 12 week consultation relates to some of the 119 HCC contracted services they support and runs until 8 October 2014, commercial services and those funded from other sources (developer and district contributions etc) are not affected.

This consultation is available online at http://www.hertsdirect.org/busconsult

The county council need to save at least £700k from our £3.8m budget for bus services. To protect the majority of services they support and the most used services, the county council is proposing to:

  • withdraw funding to services that run after 6.30pm

  • withdraw funding for services that run on a Sunday
They want as many people as possible to take part in this consultation as possible, both bus users and non bus users.

If a resident would like to take part and does not have access to a computer it is suggested that they go to their local library where they can have access to a computer.

If people want a paper copy they can call 0300 123 4050 or email hertsdirect@hertfordshire.gov.uk
