War Memorial Cleaned
On Monday 6th November, three Parish Councillors, Graham Fothergill, Barry Hall and Anthony Titmarsh, spent some time cleaning the wall surrounding the War Memorial in preparation for the Remembrance Service which was held on 12th November. The Memorial itself is in need of restoration, a task that the councillors are unable to perform and enquiries are in hand to ascertain cost and viability for this to be done professionally. Thanks to Mr & Mrs R. Campbell – Wright of Jubilee Lodge East for allowing us access to water supply and to Anthony for the use of his power cleaner. Additional thanks to Graham Fothergill who painted all the posts and the surrounding chain.

Remembrance Sunday service
The large number of residents who attended our Remembrance Sunday service at the War Memorial now know who cleaned the wall. The base of the memorial was cleaned professionally and we are now working towards the renovation of the top section. Thanks to Rev Jim Pye for taking the service, to Knebworth Village School of the loan of their excellent loudspeaker system and to David Cox for playing The Last Post and Reveille so beautifully.

Did you know......?
Recently, while in conversation with a Knebworth resident, I realised that they were not aware that we have 3 recreation grounds in Knebworth. The main recreation ground at Watton Road, Lytton Fields and the King George the Fifth playing field (KGV) in Old Knebworth. These are all maintained by our one groundsman, Andrew, a full time job which has been made a little easier by our recent acquisition of a triple mower that goes a lot faster than our previous one did. Andrew is a jovial man who will readily engage in conversation with members of the public. While the odd 5 minute chat is neither here nor there it is probably true to say that those visitors to the recreation ground who regularly engage Andrew in conversation for half an hour or more are not allowing him to get on with his work. He is too polite to say this himself.

Play equipment
On 7th November a small but very helpful group of residents met with our clerk and 3 Parish Councillors to discuss play equipment provision on all three playing fields. It was a most productive meeting. Many of their suggestions will be incorporated into a grant application for a massive amount of funding to repair/replace play equipment on the main recreation ground and KGV. We have taken on board the idea that we should fence off the play equipment area in Lytton Fields but unfortunately this will not happen immediately.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all.
