Birch Green Hedges

The replanting of hedges in Birch Green is now complete. Local residents have expressed appreciation for the planting which replaces overgrowrn plants from thirty years ago. The planting is in time for the nesting season and will enhance the visual aspect of the greens and protect against illegal parking.

Hertingfordbury Parish Council is delighted to announce the appointment of Emma Jackson as the new Parish Clerk.
