Hatfield Heath Farmers' Market was busy and buzzing
despite the great ‘Summer Holiday’ migration, so we
would like to say a BIG thank you to all who attended on
Saturday and left with bulging bags. 28 Aug; 25 Sep; 23 Oct; 27 Nov
€ Moggy’s Pickles and Preserves joined our ever-
increasing variety of stalls this month; we should warn 28th August 25 September
you though that his pickled onions are addictive! And this
was the second market for our artisan Blacksmith whose
examples of commissioned work just had to be seen:
from BBQ’s to curtain poles his work is unique and
certainly worth a look. Food lovers, as always, were
catered for with an excellent selection of Meats, Fish,
Cheeses, Cakes, Fruit, Preserves and more. And those of
us concerned about working off those extra calories were
offered beautiful Handcrafted Walking Sticks ready for
their ramble. We do not sell kitchen sinks yet, but if
anyone knows of a local maker of hand made sinks just
let us know!
€ Do please keep the feedback coming, it really is
welcome and very helpful, and please remember to mark
us down on your calendar the 4th Saturday of every
month in Hatfield Heath Village Hall, CM22 7EA. With
almost 40 stalls and comments from people as far away
as Enfield saying we're "the best market around",
Hatfield Heath Farmers' Market is proving to be a great
place to spend your Saturday.
Once again thank you for all your support and welcome
home to all you holiday makers.

Mr Mascall's final one about building on Taylor's Field

cars going in & out of the entrance. Clipped Hedge as

narrow in West Hayes/Shaw & lastly coming out onto

Over the course of the past few issues of the magazine I
have read with sorry interest peoples attitudes to the
parking problems at the village hall mainly due to school.
I personally think it's very wrong of the village hall
committee to not let parents park there for their children. I
have previously been a pupil of Hatfield Heath Primary(a
long time ago now I must add) and there was no problem
with the parking then and it was much safer. At least, or
most of the Parents were in one place and the children
could find them easier than running about the Heath. I
understand that alot of Parents come from out of the village
now so why not encourage people that live on the Heath to
walk(if practical), and people further afield to park at the
hall. Maybe a permit scheme could be implemented.
Personally I think there's ways around this rather than each
issue people just ranting and raving at each other. I now

Hi Bruno
Just thought you would like to know that The
Heath Players swept the board at the All British
Winners National Drama Festival held at the
Thameside Theatre in Greys last night. Winning
all four of the available trophies, plus £500. The
play was The Sociable Plover, written by Tim
Whitnall, starring Lee Barnes and Martin
Bedwell, directed by Chrissie Agnew. You can
see a review of the play and some video footage
on the following site:

I think there will be more news and pictures on
their site in due course.
