“ Co-op store is doing its bit to combat loneliness”
Co-op staff and residents in Hatfield Heath have been busy raising money as
part of a national campaign to help tackle loneliness and social isolation.
The store at The Heath held a cake stall, raffle and other events which have
raised £270 for the joint Co-op and British Red Cross initiative. Robin Stevens, manager of the Co-op in
Hatfield Heath, said:
"We are delighted to support our charity partnership and we were really
pleased with how the day went."
Mark Astarita, executive director of fundraising at British Red Cross, said: "It was a fantastic visit to the
Co-op in Hatfield Heath to celebrate the store's fundraising achievements.
"The staff and local residents really supported our cause – they made a valued contribution to our
partnership with the Co-op to tackle loneliness and social isolation.
"These funds will enable the British Red Cross to provide services for thousands more isolated and
lonely people, and provide vital care and support so they can reconnect with their communities. "We'd
like to say a huge thank you to everyone."
Loneliness is a massive, increasing yet under-recognised crisis, impacting millions of people in our
society, shortening lives and eroding health and well-being, said the charity.

Heath Players present:-
Friday 11th & Saturday 12th November
Village Hall 7:30pm
The Heath Players are pleased to announce a re-run of
Forgotten Voices as well as songs and poems to
commemorate Remembrance weekend.
The first half will be poems and songs of the 1st World
War, then the reading of Forgotten Voices which is
based on the oral testimonials (collected by the Imperial
War Museum) from the veterans. They talk the story of
five survivors, four men and one woman, whose
memories provide a vocal and moving first-hand
account of the Great War.
The evening will be studio style with bar and nibbles.
Donations please at the door to cover the costs and the
remainder to go to the Poppy Appeal.
The first time we performed this was for the Hatfield
Regis Local History Society Exhibition weekend in
July and it was warmly received. If you have seen it
please come and see it again, if you haven’t seen it
please seize the chance.
Stansted Airport: A useful facility on our doorstep.
I noted with interest about Bob Jones piece on Aircraft noise. I wanted to put an alternative view. I positively
enjoy having Stansted close by. I enjoy being able to go on holiday from this Airport to a wide variety of
destinations. It fact I tend to choose my holiday destination on the basis of where can we go from Stansted? I do
not like the hike to either Gatwick or worse Heathrow. It is convenient to be able to ask a friend to take our family
to the airport, and return the favour when they want to travel.
I think Mr Jones is making too much fuss over noise. The two planes that are the workhorses of the industry are
the Boeing 737 and the Airbus A320 series. These are modern jets and they have quieter engines than their
predecessors. With each successive generation the planes get quieter.
Also he neglects to mention the work the Airport put into noise suppression, night time flying restrictions, and
changes to flight paths to reduce noise from the densely populated areas.
Yes, planes do make some noise but that is a penalty that I am prepared to tolerate for the convenience of having
Stansted close by.

Halloween is the evening before the
Christian holy days of All Hallows' Day (also
known as All Saints' Day.
When Christianity came to England and the
rest of Europe, 1 November became All
Saints Day - a day dedicated to all those
saints who didn't have a special day of their
own. They performed a mass called 'All hal-
lows mass' and the night before became
known as All Hallows E'en and eventually
Hallowe’en or Halloween.

HOUSE BURGLARY: Three steps to reduce the risk
Beat the burglar!! Three steps to take that will reduce the risk of you being a burglary victim.
Is there clear unobstructed access to the rear?
Burglars will prefer to gain access out of sight at the rear. Where possible fence and gate access to
rear gardens with 1.8m close boarded wooden fencing, top this with some trellis and/or spiky toppings (spiky top-
pings require a warning notice). Ensure the gate is securely locked. How about some defensive planting, what’s
this you ask……something like Berberus, Pyracantha or Hawthorn around perimeter fencing and in trellis.
Doors: - With wooden doors, in addition to the “Rim Lock” fit and use a five lever mortice lock. Most UPVC doors
as with windows use a multi locking system, make sure you know how to use it, when inside pulling the handle up
will engage all the locks but in some cases will only lock the centre lock, to lock all the mechanism in place you
must use the key (if in doubt try it before the burglar does).
Become an illusionist make your home appear occupied even when you are out, a burglar is more than likely to
only see your home in one moment in time. Simple things like lights on timers and “Fake TV” for the evenings, you
can now even get a timer that fits over your light switches (search on the internet for light switch timer). During
the day leave a radio on, boots outside the back door, vacuum cleaner out with the lead going out of sight (not
plugged in though), newspaper over the arm of the chair with a drink on the table and a pair of spectacles, the list
Naturally these are but a few measures you can take that will reduce your risk and depending on the property
there may be others that also reduce the risk of being a burglary victim.

ficer using the police non-emergency number of 101 then extension 407110 or email:-

The Parking issue in the village remains a serious problem which the Parish Council are trying to resolve. It was
agreed that the double yellow line scheme could not be implemented until we had provided alternative parking
on the grass island in front of the Village Tearoom. Unfortunately we are unable to do so as ownership of the
island has not been verified. Clerk has urged the Lord of the Manors Agent to resolve this issue as soon as pos-
ML proposed retaining legal advice to ascertain ownership of the islands in question. Approved

Bilko the dog that went to the School and also into the Church while the serv-
ice was on because he loved people.
In the evening he would sit and wait for the ice cream van to come because
the driver used to give him a cornet.
Bilko was owned by Peter Nichols who lived in Broomfields at that time.

THE HUNDRED PARISHES SOCIETY
Last month, I wrote about toll roads, also known as turnpikes. Evidence survives of the facilities that
evolved up to the early 20th century to service traffic drawn by horses or oxen. Former coaching inns and
occasional horse troughs can still be seen in places like Wadesmill, Puckeridge and Buntingford on the
former A10, Quendon, Newport and Great Chesterford on the old A11, and the Hadhams and Linton on
lesser routes. Growth in motor traffic in the 20th century caused many of these places to be bypassed.
There is little sign of toll gates, although a reproduced list of tolls can be seen in Newport. There is still one
toll road within the Hundred Parishes, in Stanstead Abbotts. At the southwestern end is the historic Rye
House Gatehouse, well worth a visit on an open day, although it is now closed for the winter. The toll road
runs beside Rye Meads Nature Reserve which is open all year round.
Milestones or mile irons appeared on many routes, especially from the 1750s when turnpike trusts were
required to instal them. Many survive and some are lovingly cared for, especially by the Milestone Society.
A good number of junctions of our country lanes still have finger posts pointing the way and sometimes
giving distances. Near the foot of old, round metal posts the manufacturer’s name can sometimes be
found - frequently Maldon Ironworks of Essex. Some of their posts survive from the 1920s and 1930s.
Today, we tend to take for granted the facilities that support 21st-century travel – motorway service areas
and gantries, speed cameras, bus interchanges and airports. Will they be viewed one day with the same
nostalgia that today embraces horse troughs, milestones and roadside finger-posts?

Gardening Club Outings
This year we have had two outing, the first one in July to
Titsey Place, near to Westerham in Kent and the second in
August to Bardfield Vineyard. As with any gardening
outing one hopes that the weather will be good.
Titsey Place, the weather was mixed, it started to rain
when we arrived but fortunately we went straight into the
house for a conducted tour. When we came out it had
stopped, which allowed us to view the garden before it
started raining again.
The walled garden - oh how I wish I had one with large
greenhouses - nectarines, peaches and grapes, though I did
think that my peppers looked better. Their brassicas put
mine to shame, and I thought mine looked good. A garden
where flowers and vegetables were grown together with
splashes of colour amongst the vegetables.
Bardfield Vineyard, the weather was wonderful, We had
an introductory talk in the Ann of Cleves barn. She owned
the manor as part of her divorce settlement and it is
supposed she had the barn built. It was a magnificent
building. Originally it was a hay barn, then a grain barn
and now predominately a barn for weddings, though one
needed to watch out for the bat droppings.
A tour followed of the garden with the owner of the house
explaining what they had done and were trying to
accomplish with wild flowers and two spinneys, one of
indigenous trees and the other of non-indigenous trees. We
also encountered the ageless gardener out in all weathers.
He was working in the garden that has been created for
people with mental health problems on a project called
The vineyard manager then gave us a very comprehensive
talk on the growing of vines, their main variety being
Bacchus, an appropriate name for a vine type.
We then retired back to the hall for a wine tasting followed
by tea, scones and cake. The wines were excellent, good
enough to buy some, so was the tea and scones.
A very pleasant and relaxing afternoon.
