I APPLAUD MARK LEMONS DECISION

The Editor 26/4/2010

Hatfield Heath Village Magazine

Sir,

I have read the letter in your May edition from Mark

Lemon concerning his resignation from the Village Hall

Committee and I applaud his decision.

He correctly states that the hall was built with loans and
community funds for the use of the community. The
present Village Hall Committee appear as dinosaurs,
heading down a track of total isolation where the car
park is retained for their use and only their use.

GM Property Maintenance In the morning and late afternoon when the school is in
term time there seems to be no logical reason why the
Decorating Specialists car park cannot be used by everyone.
Similarly it is only a footpath away from the Surgery but
Est. 1987 yet use is prevented, this would reduce a continuous
blockage in the Broomfields area.
