Remembrance Service – Sunday 8th November

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, this year, there will be no formal gathering at the Birch Green war memorial. Instead a service will be held in the churchyard at St Mary’s church, Hertingfordbury.  The service is limited to 30 people and so it is essential that anyone wishing to attend, registers with the church. Cllr Paul Rochford, chairman of Hertingfordbury Parish Council, will lay a wreath on behalf of the residents of the five greens.

Play Area Open

The council has opened the Birch Green play area and installed two new climbing apparatus.

Users are reminded to observe all Covid-19 restrictions:

  • Follow the current social distance guidelines and encourage your children to do the same.
  • If the playground is busy, consider coming back at a later time. Talk to your children about this before visiting.
  • Wash your and your children’s hands before and after visiting. Take hand sanitiser with you and consider taking a bottle of water to wash children’s hands.
  • Follow and adhere to all current government advice in addition to the above guidance.
