Hatfield Heath Parish Council is delighted to announce that
the AED Cabinet is now up on the wall to the left of the front
wall of the Co-Op store - adjacent to and overlooking the
White Horse car park.
Sincere thanks are due to the Manager of the Co-Op Store, for
permission for this, and also for agreeing to allow the air
unit inside the cabinet to be connected to their electrical supply.
Anyone wishing to access the Defibrillator, but who does not have prior knowledge of the door
lock code, need only telephone 999 and the Ambulance Service will supply it immediately -
once satisfied that the caller is a serious caller.
For those who have had some training, the defibrillator is reasonably intuitive as well - you
just have to follow the audible and visual instructions automatically provided by the unit
itself. So if someone needs your help - please do not hold back - you may save a life.
If there is sufficient demand Hatfield Heath Parish Council will arrange further training
sessions to enable as many as possible to feel comfortable in using the Defibrillator should
they be called upon.
T here are full instructions available o n how to use the Defibrillator inside the
AED wall Cabinet.
By the time you read this, you should also be able to find a Quick Reference Guide on
our Hatfield H eath Parish Council website : http://www.hatfieldheath.com
May I take this opportunity to thank all of those, who by their interest and support, have
made t he installation of this vital equipment available to all.
I should make special mention of District Cllr. Mark Lemon, Chairman of HHPC , who
obtained grant funding for us to obtain this very expensive equipment in the first instance. I
should also congratulate and thank our volunteers, centred mainly around our business
community stretching from the School to Hunters' Meet, who made themselves available for
training. I would encourage as many others of us also to take advantage of future free 1-hr
training sessions as soon as they become available. Watch for details which will be published
in this Village Magazine.
Further information, or a ssistance about the Defibrillator, or to apply for training available, is
available from either [email protected] or f or general Hatfield Heath Parish
Council enquiries from Mr. E Fenwick at [email protected]

19 SERVICE BAY, WYCH ELM , HARLOW
For Christians around the world, ‘Ash Wednesday’ (which this year falls on 1 March) is the beginning of
Lent. Traditionally, Lent lasted 40 days, ending on Palm Sunday, the day when Jesus entered Jerusalem for the
last time. Today, however, in the West, it is usual to regard Easter Saturday as the last day of Lent, to
emphasise the joy of Resurrection and new life.
Ash Wednesday has a depth of meaning, summed up in the word ‘Repent’. In its original meaning, the word
called for a complete change. It meant literally ‘a complete turning around’. It was the theme of John the
Baptist’s preaching: "In those days John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness of Judea, proclaiming, 'Repent,
for the kingdom of heaven has come near' " (Matthew 3:1-2). The same call is found in the opening line of
Jesus' first sermon: "Jesus began to proclaim, 'Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near' " (Matthew
4:17). The idea of repentance also echoes in Paul's preaching: "I declared first to those in Damascus, then in
Jerusalem and throughout the countryside of Judea, and also to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to
God and do deeds consistent with repentance" (Acts 26:20).
The word ‘repent’ appears 75 times in the Bible. In Lent, Christians reflect upon
• the sufferings of Christ,
• how human sinfulness led to his crucifixion,
• the imperfection of our thoughts and actions, and
• how we may become more Christlike.
Here are some questions to help you:
• What walls have we built?
• Which actions and attitudes do we need to stop so that we can include and draw others into our circle
• Does my involvement in this community encourage others to become a welcoming place for all?
• When have we been unfaithful?
• As we hear the language of fear and retribution, does our faith lead us to respond?
• Are we failing when we remain silent?
• What words of truth, hope, healing, and peace are we offering as more and more people fall to
unspeakable suffering and isolation?
• Do we speak and live the words of Jesus by loving and caring for one another?
My prayer is that these questions may be starting points for the days and weeks ahead as we examine what we
are doing, how we are doing it, and what results come from our actions. This is the time of ‘Lent’.
Yours truly, Rev Sam [ United Reform Church, Hatfield Heath]

activities. Many of the offenders were illiterate but for the first time had a chance of a worthwhile education.
One of the most popular activities in the Prison was gardening and as a result they finished up winning a Gold
Medal at both Chelsea and at Tatton Park.
It was very difficult mentally and emotionally to help inmates to overcome their personal problems. Rev Clive,
however, enjoyed the challenge and was thrilled when one of the inmates obtained a BA Degree and many others
went on to lead normal lives.
Rev. Clive is retiring shortly to the Lake District to be near his family, and pursue his interest in Rugby football
and Bird Watching.
His talk was very well received with a very good attendance.

CRIME PREVENTION ADVICE FROM NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH
At a time when our partner organisations (police, local authorities, fire service, etc) are under severe financial
pressure, which often results in a reduction in the services they provide, it is important that communities take
responsibility to protect themselves. NhW is a prime example of how to fulfil this community resilience, and this
has been recognised by the Police & Crime Commissioner.
Crime Prevention advice - Sheds and Allotments
Just lately we have seen what used to be the spring seasonal crime of thefts from garden and allotment sheds
occurring throughout the year with tools, garden tools and garden machinery being taken.
Sheds by the nature of their construction and position especially when isolated are always going to vulnerable.
Quite often the supplied locks provide just barest minimum security and are easily overcome so always consider
supplementing the existing locks with further locking systems both for the doors, items within and strengthening
frame/structure where such locks are attached.
Think about the site perimeter – good fencing and/or defensive planting (spiky hedging) and a secure gate will
deter unwanted visitors together with signage re “Private property, valuable tools removed and property security
Coach bolt and plate the padlock hasp etc to the frame and door,
Use a good quality “Close Shackle” padlock to secure it,
Don’t forget the hinges - ensure they cannot be unscrewed.
When storing larger items like lawn mowers etc consider a fixing set into a concrete floor where possible, use a
heavy chain and again a good quality padlock to secure it to it.
Put a curtain or other up at the window to prevent prying eyes.
Where possible don’t keep tools and equipment in isolated sheds on unoccupied sites that you can’t afford to lose.
Consider a shed alarm, though it may be of little value if no one will hear it.
Property marking is also a good idea with signage on the shed to show the property is marked. This makes the
property harder to sell on gives the police a better chance of prosecution by having an owner.
Products that are fit for purpose can found by looking for the "Secured by Design" or "Sold Secure" logos, or on
their websiteshttp://www.securedbydesign.com/ or http://www.soldsecure.com/ .

Blooming marvellous gardens wanted for St Clare Hospice!
Do you have a blooming beautiful garden? Are your hanging baskets heavenly? Is your lawn lovely?
Are your pots perfect? Then you could help St Clare Hospice grow its perennially popular
Open Gardens Weekend by opening your garden gates to the public for its 2017 event.
Held every year in June for more than two decades, the Hastingwood-based charity’s two-day horti-
cultural event is an opportunity for lovers of all things flora and fauna to explore some of the best-kept green
spaces in the St Clare catchment area. The 2017 Open Gardens weekend is being held on 24th and 25th June
and tickets will be on sale in March.
This year, the Hospice is looking to grow the event by spreading its roots further and inviting people to open their
gardens in the Uttlesford area. The charity is inviting residents to consider opening their garden in Dunmow, Stan-
sted, Saffron Walden, Thaxted and surrounding villages.
St Clare Community Fundraising Lead, Dani De’ath, who is organising the Open Gardens event, said:. “St Clare
Hospice offers free, expert care to people with life-limiting illnesses all across Uttlesford. Our specialist nurses
and healthcare assistants visit patients in their own homes in Saffron Walden, Great Dunmow, Thaxted and all the
surrounding villages. This year, recognising that the care we provide extends right the way to these towns and
communities, we want to invite residents to consider taking part in one of our best fundraisers – Open Gardens.”

Destruction of Mill Lane and our village as we know it!!
I wish to share my frustrations with your loyal readers. I recently discovered that a planning application has been
submitted to Uttlesford District Council requesting approval to erect 40 houses on the land to the west of Mill
Lane, which encompasses Camp Farm and the Prisoner of War Camp.
The departure of the current business on Camp Farm would stop the large articulated Lorries using Mill Lane to
make deliveries during the early hours. However, the development would mean the DESTRUCTION of the
Prisoner of War Camp and the utilisation of Mill Lane as the ONLY access point.
I wish to share my objections with your readers, who I share this beautiful village with, as it is running the risk of
becoming a town, if we allow the developers bombarding us with development opportunities to win the battle.
▪ Significant increase in traffic using Mill Lane - additional 80+ cars;
▪ Mill Lane does not allow for the safe passing of two cars and will not provide sufficient provisions for
pedestrians in the form of well maintained pavements;
▪ Increased congestion on Stortford Road at the junction with Mill Lane due to restricted passing
opportunities within Mill Lane for the increased number of vehicles;
▪ Increased dangers associated with walking along the lane;
▪ Restricted access for emergency vehicles due to increased congestion;
▪ Increased risk of flooding to residents on Stortford Road due to poor drainage;
▪ The utilisation of Metropolitan Greenbelt land;
▪ Increased pressures on local infrastructure - village school oversubscribed, doctor’s surgery bursting at
the seams and general village parking issues;
▪ Destruction of the habitat for a number of wildlife species - deer, badger, rabbits, birds etc;
▪ Destruction of a historical, educational WW2 camp used to explain our heritage to the younger
▪ Increased pollution both atmospheric and noise.
If you are with me, please sign an online petition at www.change.org and search using keyword Uttlesford.
As well as emailing your objections to [email protected] quoting reference UTT/16/3697/FUL
Please help me save our village.

WINDOW ON THE PAST
In 1638 an Inn called Shrubbs or the White Hart was sold by Mr Edward Earle of H B O for £80. The
property was known as both the White Hart and Shrubbs over the next hundred years. In 1735 it was
still known as the White Hart Inn and was held by Francis Bowtell. However from that time on only
the name Shubbs appeared in the records so that’s when it ceased as an Inn.

Comments by Councillors
Access and egress. Numbers of movements are wildly inaccurate. Road is too narrow to allow two vehicles to pass
and there are no footways causing danger to pedestrians.
Need. No need in the village for 40 houses with only 10 ‘affordable’ houses. The need in the village is for afforda-
ble rental property.
Drainage. There is already a serious drainage problem along Stortford Road and this development will only exac-
erbate this as the scheme will only use the existing system to discharge the water.
School. Residents are having difficulty getting their children into our local school which is oversubscribed.
Doctors. Patient numbers now exceed 10000 and facilities at the surgery is incapable of extra numbers.
Utilities. These services are already struggling to cope.
Highways There needs to be a survey by ECC Highways to determine traffic flows.
Wildlife. This will destroy wildlife in the area.
OBJECT strongly on the grounds of unsustainable development within the Metropolitan Green Belt. The site is not
appropriate for such a large-scale development with traffic problems, inadequate drainage provision, inadequate
infrastructure and destruction of Historic World War II prisoner of war camp.

Keeping our Village Tidy as part of The Great British Spring Clean.
S adly ever increasing traffic levels through Hatfield Heath brings significantly more litter every year. What can we
do about it? Well, it just so happens that across the weekend of Friday 3rd March to Sunday 5th March, there is to
be a nationwide anti-litter campaign - The Great British Spring Clean.
Here is a chance to give our Village a really good clean up once and for all. To help us, Uttlesford District Council
have pledged to supply litter bags and will make arrangements to have the rubbish collected from us afterwards.
How best to set about this? Simply organise a small working party from your immediate road, or cluster of homes.
Members of Hatfield Heath social and sports clubs, all societies, schools, play-groups, and businesses all make good
starting points. We are all in this together so let us act together across this one weekend and have a really good tidy
There is an official web site where you can sign up - http://www.greatbritishspringclean.org.uk/. Alternatively just
email the good people at [email protected] with details of the date and location of the litter pick, and
where y our filled bags will be left ready for collection. Let's go for it!
Thank you. [Hatfield Heath Parish Council]
