April 2008


I sometimes get invited, in my capacity as Chairman of the Parish Council, to public and civic events. Recently we had the NHDC Civic Service in St Martin`s Church and a couple of weeks ago Carole and I went to a Civic Reception hosted by NHDC Cllr Alan Bardett. This was a money raising function in aid of The Living Room charity, based in Stevenage. A very nice meal was followed by an auction and that, together with the tombola, raised around £3000 for The Living Room. Shortly before that evening I was invited to be a judge for the Stevenage and North Herts YOPEY awards, with an awards ceremony during the February half term break. The Young People Of The Year Awards happen in a number of areas and celebrate those young people who make a difference in our society. Young carers, those who work for charity, those who support others of the same age and so on. If you know of a young person you would like to nominate for a YOPEY award go to the website for more information. These are just a few of the events that I am happy to attend on behalf of the people of Knebworth.

Knebworth JMI Headmaster retires
Most recently I was delighted to attend the leaving party for Kevin Williams in order that I could present him with a gift on behalf of the Parish Council to express our thanks for all he has done for the children of Knebworth over the past 20 years. We`ll miss him.

Village development
We hear that the application to develop the 9, Stevenage Road site has been withdrawn. The Parish Council is aware that there might be a number of this type of application over the next few months/years.

Annual Parish Meeting
Wednesday 7th May is the date for our Annual Parish Meeting at the village hall. I am sure that it will, as always, be a lively meeting. We invite key personnel from HCC and NHDC but they do not always turn up. If there are any specific topics that you would like addressed during that meeting please give us advance notice of such topics so that we can attempt to source answers prior to the meeting. The Clerk is on 01438 813795 or at please copy your question to me at
