The next Editor was the Rev. T. W.Reynolds, who became
Vicar in 1898, and I am happy to have a message from him.
" I was very pleased to get a letter from you and hear
something again of Hatfield Heath after about 45 years. I
congratulate you on the fact that you have been able to keep
the Parish Magazine in existence during these troublous'
times and are looking forward to celebrating, its Jubilee in
September. It has survived many disturbing epochs in the
history of our country—the Boer War and the Great War, and
is now passing through the hardest time of all. I hope it will
live to see the day of Victory and continue its useful-ness to
the Parish throughout many years of peace and plenty, union
and concord, in a happy future for the Church, the country,

and the world1 at large.

Michael Ronan had the unenviable job of judging the
Easter Bonnet competition.

You can see from the entries above what a difficult
undertaking this was. However, there was a clear
winner for the boy’s prize, and this was acknowledged
by many comments from the mums and dads
watching on.
The girl’s prize was very much closer and indeed the
winner could have been any one of a dozen or more
equally lovely bonnets.

Then, the hunt was on. The children had to find a set Daniel Robinson
number and colour of laminated eggs for their respective & Sons
age groups. Some eggs were hidden in the church (but
not for long!), and most were secreted in the churchyard. Independent Family
When thecorrect number had been collected, the Funeral Directors & Monumental Masons
children exchanged their laminated eggs for a real
chocolate one. This year we had the most entries that
we have ever had; nearly 50 children were involved in
the hunt.

All who took part seemed to be enjoying themselves. All GOLDEN 3 BULLFIELDS
the children were very well behaved; the church carpet CHARTER SAWBRIDGEWORTH

the spring flowers are still standing! Thank you to the FUNERAL PLANS (01279) 722476

tell them that there were not enough real eggs for them (01371) 874518 (01992) 560890
