Sunday17th June Hatfield Heath

CLASSIC CAR SHOW Business Association

Hatfield Heath Festival 2007.

Last year various members of the

newly formed Business

Association suggested that we

should try to get the festival up and

running again, and after a 9 year
gap the Festival finally returned
the weekend of 16th and 17th June.

JOHN WHITE We had good support from
Organiser of the everyone at the earlier public
Classic Car Show meetings and committees were
formed.

Hatfield Heath School already had their date in place for
the Saturday and Tim Potter was organising the Church
Flower Festival, both helped by their respective
committees. Bruno and his committee were to oversee the
Sunday events.

I would like to thank everyone involved who helped us in
so many ways to make this a superb weekend; it would be
impossible to name them all.

Thanks to you all for a great effort; it really brought the
village community together.

Watch this space for information on the first meeting of the
2008 Festival Committee. Can we put an order in for 2 rain
free days next year?

John White
Chairman of the Festival Committee and Business
Association.

represent the school in friendly matches. The other new 11am – 4pm
team formed was the ‘B2’ Team. Family entertainment all day long

After their first outing against Howe Green, the ‘B1’ FREE ENTRY!
Team, kitted out in blue and yellow, played host to
Hatfield Broad Oak.

Striker Stan Hume scored Hatfield Heath’s only goal as
Broad Oak ran out 3-1 winners in a match which saw the

‘B1’ Team: Michael Bunyon, Mitchell Backs, Jake FAIR AT HATFIELD HEATH FESTIVAL 2007

IRENE’S RESPONSE
In response to the "resident of Beehive Court” who has
had to write on several occasions to Uttlesford District
Council regarding “the change of use of the many
establishments along the row of shops by the white horse”.
I would like to point out that the pubs date back to the
nineteenth century and the other establishments have been
retail units and trading for many years prior to the
development of Beehive Court which was built in 1989-
1991.
I for one would not purchase a property backing onto
retail units for the reason that there could be many changes
of use applied for which could cause unnecessary grief.
The introduction of The Village Tearoom creates no more
vehicles than if it was still a newsagent and tobacconist.
With regard to the photos supplied, the lorries are not
parked in Beehive Court, they are parked on the public
highway alongside other vehicles and are legally allowed
to do so. The lorry drivers know only too well not to arrive
when the school run is taking place as there is nowhere to
park! The bus stop and pick up point for the children
getting school buses in the morning are long gone
therefore not causing a hazard to the school children.
It is a shame that the resident of Beehive Court could not
approach me personally instead of listening to rumours. I
am not applying "through the back door" as quoted, for
another change of use to supply cooked breakfasts, I
already have permission from my original planning
application of 3 years ago to supply breakfasts but up until
now I have chosen not to do so. (But hey who knows
what I'll do now!) I would also like to point out I have
never used any back door; I only use the front door to
carry out my legitimate business affairs.
If this resident had taken time out to visit "The Village
Tearoom" they would have seen the type of establishment
I uphold and maintain instead of referring to us as a
"transport cafe or Joes Cafe". I find these remarks highly
offensive and slanderous and hope that they do not have a
detrimental effect on my business.

a regular bus route, is in an excellent position for
walking or cycling from within the village and since it
has been bought there have been no advertisements to let

particularly concerned with parking, which will be a
major problem as the places earmarked for parking do
not belong to the Mill but are on Village Green land,
upon which parking is prohibited and an enforcement
