Another with yellow petals is the rare oxlip
which is only found in a few localities within
west Essex, south Cambridgeshire and Suffolk.
This is a perennial plant with a rosette of leaves
from which arise short stalks, each topped with
a cluster of 10 to 30 pale yellow primrose-like
flowers, all facing in the same direction. Sadly,
this rather rare woodland plant is a threatened
species as deer find its flowers very tasty.
However, colonies of this beautiful plant can be
seen in two of the nature reserves managed by
Essex Wildlife Trust - Shadwell Wood near
Saffron Walden and West Wood near Thaxted.
Coppice management provides ideal conditions
for oxlips as well as many other springtime
species, so these woods are well worth a visit
in the coming weeks.
Further details of these and other reserves can
be found on the Essex Wildlife Trust website: The What’s On page at lists occasional
opportunities to help in conservation work there
and at other local nature reserves. .

Easter at the Gardens of
Easton Lodge

EASTER at the Gardens of Easton Lodge will be
a double delight this year.

Not only will children be able to take part in their
very own Easter Fun Trail, but at the same time
they will be raising money to help restore an his-
toric tree house.

The tree house, designed and built for the Coun-
tess of Warwick by Harold Peto at the turn of the
last century, requires thousands of pounds for res-
toration and the Gardens’ trustees have embarked
on a Treehouse Project.

To support this, we are having a special opening
on Easter Sunday, March 27, for a children’s
Easter Fun Trail. Our young visitors can work
their way around the gardens, finding and solving
the clues to the Easter puzzle and then return with
it completed to claim their prize from the Easter
Grotto. There will also be an Easter croquet
challenge and the chance to “be a bunny”.

The gardens will be open from 11.30am to
3.30pm, with last entry at 2.30pm. Entry to the
gardens will be £3 per adult; children come in

Bruno Scheggia
An entertaining evening having the benefit of
Bruno’s interaction with an attentive audience
contained a great many facts and a great deal of
humour. Initially first published in 1894 as a Parish
Magazine provided the starting point for Bruno’s
talk and presentation. Some interesting statistics
from 1894 when the magazine cost 1 penny (old
money), later editions cost subscriptions of £2.50
until 2005 when it was backed by a Parish plan grant
which enabled it to go to the whole village free.
Within a very short time, within a year or so, the
magazine became self-sufficient financed solely
from advertising enabling a free magazine delivery
to each household. Bruno took a ‘walk’ through with
supporting images of several old issues that also
highlighted the number of cover changes which had
taken place over the 112 years of the magazines
existence (In all some 7 changes from the 1894
edition). The magazine continues to go from
strength to strength by virtue of the Editor (Bruno
and his wife Barbara) and the 22 Volunteers.

Footpaths in Hatfield Heath - Stella and Ian
An informative talk by Stella and Ian Hughes on the
DOMESTIC & INDUSTRIAL ‘Footpaths of Hatfield Heath’ defined a historical and
ELECTRICAL CONTRACTORS current perspective. The background to how footpaths
provided a commuter route between farms and
villages and the effect of the 18/19 Century enclosure
acts was described in some detail. An evening divided
into a number of parts included references to signage,
types of rights of way and the use of local authority
maps. Using a range of dated maps to illustrate
footpath details reflecting interesting comparisons of
how some footpaths appeared to have changed. The
maintenance responsibilities of footpaths for
Councils, Farmers and Walkers was highlighted and
detailed maps of local routes shown. Four compass
points of Hatfield Heath footpaths generated facts and
figures to this extent. The detailed work produced for
these maps is symptomatic of the way in which Stella
and Ian have approached the importance that they
place upon their appointment as Wardens.

● Mel Sullivan gave a presentation on the history of
the Stortford Road/Sawbridgeworth Road junction
redesign, discussions and agreements with Essex
CC highways department. SB said that there was
no possibility of a mini roundabout at this junction
as it was considered it would affect traffic flow. It
was pointed out to SB that the proposed design
was the worst possible solution with traffic allowed
to speed through and from the village in
Sawbridgeworth Road, whilst the junction into
Stortford Road, classed as a major route, would
affect traffic flow and continue to cause problems
with the junction with Pond Lane. The Parish
Council consider that the engineer responsible for
the design has not properly considered the
implications of this complicated area which has
three major junctions within 200 yards. It was
further pointed out that it was a requirement of
the Police that an engineering solution was
required to control the speed through the village
and that the mini roundabout solution was exactly
what was required. SB will ask the engineers to
look again at the design. The Parish Council asked
that the engineer consult with the Parish Council
and to hear their concerns.

YOU might say all roads lead to Hatfield Heath. Located
on the edge of Hatfield Forest, there are six roads that Handyman Services
lead into the village with the main crossroads being the

Harlow is of a large village green, Holy Trinity Church

flanking the green. Despite being only a moderate-sized
village of around 750 houses, Hatfield Heath has the Local resident with 15 years experience

After a long struggle a 30mph speed limit has now been
imposed in the village. The police have spot speed 15106 Aug 2016

active to remind passing traffic of the speed limit by a
more regular visual check.
The Hatfield Heath Festival was revived last year after a
gap of nine years. It was started in June 1969 to pay for
rebuilding of the village hall and its upkeep.
The main purpose of the festival now is to bring the
community together for a happy fun weekend. Last year
was particularly successful and the next festival will be
on the June 15, 2008.
There are three halls in the village used by at least 30
clubs or groups. There is also a very active Royal British
Legion Women's Section.
Hatfield Heath County Primary School is at the heart of
this local community and has enthusiastic teaching staff
and parents. The village pre-school is presently housed
in the village hall but needs its own building, so teachers
and helpers have come up with great ideas to raise
money to pay for their own building to be built in the
grounds of the primary school.
A recent charity auction and dance at Down Hall
Country House Hotel, on the southern edge of the
village, raised an amazing £8,500, bringing the current
fund to a total of £32,000.
