Dear Sir or Madam,
Firstly I must say how good it is to have discovered the site. It is good to know there are so many people who care about our village.
I am inquiring whether there is a 'for sale' area on the site? I used the search engine but couldn't seem to find anything. If there is not, then would anyone else find this a useful way to sell items locally.
Many thanks again for the quality site,
Aidan Winwood

Editor's Note: Yes there was a 'classified ads' section of the site but it was hosted on another server that kept failing. Because it was unreliable it was taken down. However a new system is being tested which might offer a similar facility. If it proves reliable it will be added to the site.
Your web site is great. A great way to find information. I hope others will use it too. Keep up the good work! God Bless

Hello Everyone,
I have just found your (our) great site. I was born at 73 (now 129?) Moffats Lane in 1938 and lived in the same house until I was 18 - Ithaca House School, St Albans School and the Congregational Church being the centres of my life. Would any of my many friends care to contact me to swap e-mails about old times?
I feel prompted to write about my childhood in the woods fields around B P and all the adventures we had. Who do I address this to for possible publishing?

Note from the editor: What a great idea Graham. Any memories of Brookmans Park from any readers of this site who feel they have some interesting recollections to share would be gratefully received. Please send them to feedback
I read this website often to keep in touch with what is happening in my ancestral homeland, but I am writing today to thank all of the readers of this website and all of the people of the United Kingdom for the support you have shown those of us in the United States since the recent terrorist disaster. I watched the playing of the 'Star Spangled Banner' at Buckingham Palace on television a few nights ago. It was magnificent. Thank you!

Hello everybody! I am an ex patriot of Brookmans Park (and Chancellors' 71-77). We used to live in The Gardens. I am now living 'down under', but I keep in touch with Brookmans Pk, via this website. (Have a look at our 'Village', distinctly Australian, with a touch of England at I'd be interested to see some pictures of 'The Village'.

Have a look at the picture gallery of the village that has been put together for this site.
I read your Newsletter in Skopje, Macedonia where I am currently working. Although outside the weather is very hot and dusty and in the hills surrounding the city there is a mini civil war being fought by Albanian rebels and the Macedonian Army for a few moments I was taken back to the place I lived when I was a teenager in the late 50's. What a surprise it was to realise that I knew so little about the one place I thought I knew so well! The Brookmans Park Newsletter is like a letter from home. Congratulations on such a fine website.
Martyn Day.

In the absence of a guest book, which seems to be about the only thing this busy site is missing, I just wish to commend the web master on a job well done with a lot of style. It's a terrific job with a huge amount of info. My village site (Wetterfield Virtual Village) is clearly much younger and can only draw inspiration from your efforts.

Just a short note to all my friends, and some of you others who regularly saw me on the 06.38 from BP station.
Thanks for all the lifts. Thans for all the chat. But most important of all thanks for the fivers that I collected from
the many misguided Gooners. Without you we probably could have only afforded less. A special word for Dave,
my favourite scouser -- Thanks for the goals but are'nt you supposed to score in the opposing net. Hope to see
all of you sometime soon on that wonderful WAGN line.

Bye for now

A really good site for improving community contact. Is there anything on the Women's Institute on the site only
my daughter is the one who has been 'surfing' the site and this is my first view of it.

I found your web site very interesting and helpful, but for the life of me, I can't find any classified ads. I'm interested in the parttime job market Herfordshire offers college students. Could you please send me some information?   Thanks!

This is a superb site. I stumbled across it as I was trying to find out how my old school (Chancellor's) was doing. I finished sixth form there in 1991. Any other members of my year out there?

Great web site and it's nice to see 'Local' topics being covered. I'll look into making some special computer deals available to local residents through your site if this would help it's popularity. great effort so far....

This is a very nice web site, well produced and full of interesting content.  One small, very subjective criticism: I liked it better before you put all the graphics on the front page.

Terrific effort - hope that the site gets the local support it deserves, and grows as a result.
as a local resident, and enthusiastic amateur jazz drummer, are there any other local musos in the area looking for a blow? if so, please e-mail.
