Please report potholes when you see them

It’s that time of year when potholes often appear in roads in and around our parish.  Luckily never as bad as the one in the photo!  If you see a pothole please report it to Hertfordshire County Council.  The process is really simple and it’s easy to see if it has already been reported.  You can find a link on our useful links page or do so directly from here.  The same link can be used to report fallen trees, street lights not working and problems with pavements.

New memorial bench

A new bench has been donated to the parish by the family of Cherry and Keith Simpson and placed on Potten End Village Green to replace an old log seat.  Cherry and Keith moved to the parish in 1975 and lived happily here for 41 years.
