I am writing in reply to the last few issues “Wendycot”,Chelmsford Road,
concerning these very loud yappy dogs Hatfield Heath,
I’m the one who complained to the dog warden
and also called the RSPCA and for good reason Bishop’S Stortford, Herts
I tell you these poor dogs live outside even in
the really cold winters we have, and not in Opening Hours
kennels they are never walked. Mon - Fri 8am - 5.30pm
I’m a dog lover and think this is disgusting
someone has to stand up for these poor Sat 9am - 1pm
dogs.......I have 2 small children who are
constantly woken up by these very yappy dogs. Tel: 01279 730 274
After speaking to the dog warden I understand
they are not allowed out after 10pm although [email protected]
they always are. I have recorded them barking
gone midnight this is not GOOD ENOUGH.
I see in the December issue the dogs state they
were barking because of the fireworks well
who in there right mind leaves there animals
outside for fireworks this is just cruel and also
fireworks night is not 365 days a year I have
been here a year and they have barked non stop
since........I can’t even sit out and relax in the
summer months.
Someone has to do something because I know
a lot of the residents of Broomfields are at there
wits end and I shall keep complaining till these
dogs are kept indoors or have better facilities.

Kind regards

Woodland management of established coppicing and
pollarding is still carried out providing a range of uses
for cut wood. A local committee provides structural
administration with independent finance generated
rather than that from the NT general fund. Visitor
numbers have been difficult to calculate but gate
counters ascertain approximately 450,000 to 500,000.
Popular activities include hire of rowing boats on the
lake and trail bikes, children's theatre production, open
air cinema and Woodfest music festival (which this year
attracted 8,000 people). There are six full time and one
part time staff with 150 volunteers which form an
essential body covering a wide range of activities.
The evening concluded with Simon answering a number
of questions regarding the upkeep and practical
management and conservation of the forest, deer
control, grazing cattle and rare breed sheep.

The new head teacher in 1933 was Bertram Copeland, who
came from Barnsley, and had a great interest in gardening. See for Our Latest Deals
He was a strict disciplinarian, and imposed discipline with
a leather strap and cane. He was also keen on music, and Very Experienced

The school house was demolished in 1966, and a new For Free advice and a Free quotation
building erected. The school now had four classrooms. At
times during this period the head teacher and the Rector Call Steve on 01279 730071
disagreed about the running of the school. The PTA was

Philip was appointed head in December 1981. He started
with a mission statement: everyone matters. He also intro-
duced history and music, with trips to museums and the
Colne Valley Railway, as part of Victorian studies. In
1982-3 the school had 69 pupils in three classes. Weekly
swimming was introduced, as was school uniform. The
school obtained its first computer in 1983. In 1986 there
were four classes, and in 1995 there were 112 pupils. The
governing body developed from the previous Managers
body in the mid-1980s, and the school had its first budget
in 1993.
In the last twenty years that Philip was head teacher (1988-
2009) he remarked that the volume of government interfer-
ence in the minutiae of school life increased..With the in-
troduction of OFSTED and SATS there were too many
tests. The National Curriculum needs a lot of work to be
implemented fully. Despite this the school managed to
achieve awards. In 2011 the new library at the school was
opened by Philip and called the Hays library.
