Dane End Lagoon

(updated September 2016)

An application for an agricultural lagoon was unanimously rejected by East Herts District Council in May 2016.

However, the company who submitted the original application, Indegro, have lodged an appeal.

The action group opposing the application, Slade, are now trying to raise funds to fight the appeal.

An update on their campaign can be found here

Benington pond survey


Benington Parish Council has had a survey carried out on the village pond.

The reason for this is it was felt the pond would benefit from draining and clearing of rubbish. But before this could be done, it was necessary to determine what wildlife was present and the possible impacts.

Public Access Defibrillator


The village now has a defibrillator sited outside the entrance to the Village Hall, courtesy of the Parish Council and the British Heart Foundation.

A second unit will be installed outside Ernest Doe's in the near future.

These machines are designed so that any one can use them.

More information on their use can be seen on YouTube videos by clicking here
