support and practical help to victims of
crime - and other people affected. Whilst
primarily you would be serving Hatfield
Heath, you would also serve the area
immediately around us possibly as far as
Great Dunmow etc.
We need you - or someone you know - to
come forward and allow themselves to be
considered for training. Spread over only
four convenient days, the training is both
fun and interactive with volunteers saying
that they really enjoyed it.
Whilst there is a firm commitment for you to
make, most Volunteers really enjoy their
involvement for several years - and some
stay for decades. You have to be at least
eighteen years old to be selected and there
is no upper age limit. Fully supported by a
local Manager you will also get plenty of
opportunities to meet with other volunteers
in the Team at locally arranged Volunteer
meetings, and also one to one support
meetings, both designed to help build your
counselling skills. Your already good IT
skills will make the client reports you send
weekly a mere routine.
Brendan, proprietor of the ever popular
Hunters Meet ,has kindly agreed to provide
a discreet central venue for appointments
with clients - which are always before 6.30
p.m. on weekdays or at weekends.

Hannah and Michael Shine would like to thank all who supported their Open Garden on
the 28/29 May weekend in aid of Grove Cottage (MENCAP). Once again we opened on
Saturday and Sunday by popular demand. We had fabulous weather throughout the
weekend, which was an added bonus. We were entertained by Jessica Daugirda (18 yr old
professional singer from the West End stage), Epping Green Community Spirit Choir,
SOSA Dance Fitness and line dancing, Adrienne & Malcolm (singers), Ukes of Hazard
(Ukulele group) and Anwaar Belly Dance. On Sunday, we were entertained by the
Bishops Stortford Ukulele Society and Izzy & Pete (singers). The belly dancers were so
exotic with stunning costumes and the ukulele groups on both days engaged the crowd
with nostalgic songs. The gardens looked beautiful and the entertainment was superb.
Loads of plants were sold, and coffee and cakes were a great hit. The book stall and
raffle stall were busy too. We are most grateful to all our entertainers for giving us such a
fantastic performance for the charity.
We would like to thank all our friends and volunteers, and also those from Grove Cottage
who made delicious cakes and scones, all those who helped on the day, and all those who
made generous donations and gave raffle prizes.We would also like to thank the Co-op
for kindly supplying us with carrier bags for the book stall!
Grove Cottage will benefit from this event by just over £4,250 – a very rewarding sum.
We are most grateful and appreciative of all your support which made this possible.
Grove Cottage is affiliated to Mencap and is maintained by local donations only. It
provides activities for children and adults with learning disabilities and respite care for
parents/carers. This provides a much needed break for the families of these children and
Many thanks again. We hope to do it again next year – the last May Bank Holiday
weekend!! Once again, many thanks for your support.

A neighbour recently submitted a building application to Uttlesford District Council's Planning Department - 60%
of those eligible to comment did so, all objecting. Fortunately the application was refused. It was rejected
for a number of reasons: Scale, location and design, poor amenity for neighbouring property and poor visual
amenity for the street - All legitimate and valid grounds for refusal.
It was then very disappointing to read in May's edition of the Village Magazine that Hatfield Heath Parish Council
had no objections to this development. I had assumed HHPC worked along the same guidelines and implemented
the same code of practice as UDC , so I'm perplexed as to how they've come to a different conclusion. On the
UDC's website 11 neighbour's objections and comments were accessible to view, the last of which was dated 12th
April 2016. HHPC's minutes were dated 13th April 2016, were these neighbours objections not considered, I
would have hoped that HHPC had looked at what the immediate people's comments were before
making their decision..... Also if UDC's decision was at a point where it could have gone either way, HHPC's
comments may have helped to sway in favour of the applicant.
Isn't the role of the Parish Council to represent it's local village community??
I have emailed the parish clerk and Cllr Lemon twice asking for their comments - as yet I have received no reply.
