Hannah and Michael Shine would like to thank all who

supported their Open Garden at the Bank Holiday
weekend in aid of Grove Cottage (MENCAP).

Initially, we were opening only on Saturday, but by
popular demand we agreed to open on Sunday as well.

Although we had a huge downpour on Saturday, Sunday

was bright and sunny. Everyone who came enjoyed the

garden, the plant sale, coffee, and home made cakes. We

would like to thank all our friends who made delicious
cakes, all those who helped on the day, and all those who

generously donated raffle prizes.

The total raised for the charity was £2,052 – a very

rewarding sum. Grove Cottage are most appreciative.
Grove Cottage is affiliated to Mencap and is maintained

by local donations only. It provides activities for children Beautiful Hand- made
and adults with learning disabilities and respite care for Kitchens, Bedrooms, Office Furniture

the families of these children and adults. Telephone: 01279 722 811

Hatfield Regis



Tue 25th May 2010

The Society, together with the Leisure Hour,& Bishops
Stortford Natural History Society, visited the Old Forge
Museum at Much Hadham on Tuesday 25th May, and
were treated to a memorable tour given by the Museum
Curator Christina Harrison.
The old Forge is a complex of late 15th and early 16th
century buildings, where the farrier continues his
blacksmith's craft today.
As well as a number of artefacts of all descriptions, and a
series of early picture postcards of views of the village, the
finale was a stunning and rare display of late 16th cent.
Wall Paintings having retained much of their original vivid
colouring, The Forge Museum is very fortunate to have
such a fine display of unique paintings.
After the tour, split into 3 groups of nine persons, we
enjoyed cups of tea and coffee served in giant cups,
together with some delicious home made cakes.

A very close and exciting game was played here on CARPETS • VINYL •LAMINATE
Monday, 26th ult. between two elevens of Married

and Single.

The "Benedicts" seemed at first to have it all their

own way, for the "Single" men had to get 71 to beat,

in their second innings, which it was thought they

would not accomplish, and especially when 4 of their

wickets went down for 2 runs, but such is the glorious

uncertainty of cricket, that Messrs C.Nash and

W.Witham went in and made a good stand, and the

bachelors were victorious by 3 wickets. Unit 11 Heathview Pond Lane

She works all day and was always tired when she came
home from work and I thought that a ride-on lawn
mower would help her get the garden done quicker so
she would have more time for the housework.
I’m good at diy and made her a ride-on lawn mower.
I thought she would be pleased and give me a big hug.
