Brookmans Park Railway Station - Facelift

In April, Railtrack are due to start a facelift of the station at Brookmans Park, including resurfacing the platforms and surface drainage, and replacing the waiting room.  Colin Banks now reports that Railtrack have deferred this plan.  More details.

Parish Spring Clean

Put this date in your diary - Sunday April 11th 1999. Meet at Whites Corner at 10.00 am. Duration about two hours.

Help clean up the Parish ready for the 1999 Best Kept Village competition.

One team will be working their way from Welham Green down Dixons Hill Road to the war memorial, and then back along Swanland way to Water End. another team will work from Brookmans Park down Bradmore Lane to Water End, Further teams will work along Bulls Lane, Station Road, and around Bradmore Green.

Remarkably, most of the teams will manage to end up at the Woodman at Water End for a few beers at midday after collecting enough rubbish to fill a few skips.

Please come along and join us, with your help we can add a few more roads to the hit list, we supply rubbish bags etc.

North Mymms Residents Association AGM

The 1999 AGM will be on Wednesday, May 19th at 08:00 pm in the committee room at United Reform Church, Brookmans Park. The webmaster of the Brookmans Park Newsletter will be the guest speaker.

We need your help, we are short of committee members and officers, if you can spare one evening a month, come along and join the committee.

Parish Policing

There were four police officers allocated to the rural Hatfield beat, two being based in the parish, one in Welham Green and one in Brookmans Park villages. The rural Hatfield beat also had a mobile officer covering the full beat.

We now seem to have lost the mobile officer and the permanent PC for Welham Green. The two remaining officers are covering the full rural beat between them.

I understand that the reasoning for the reduction in policing is that the crime rate in Hertfordshire is very low and that police effort is being diverted to areas of higher crime rate.

Time to join or re-launch your Neighbourhood watch.
