We all love to get out and enjoy the Hertfordshire countryside, and people who 'make it happen' have been celebrated in the third annual CPRE Hertfordshire Rural Living Awards.

This 7.7km (4 3/4 miles) walk - with an option to take a shorter, 6.3km (4 miles) route - starts in Hitchin town centre and quickly reaches countryside which was recently under threat of development, though now reprieved.

CPRE has joined major national litter groups and business organisations to make a joint plea to Government to take a firm lead on litter.

Countryside campaigners CPRE Hertfordshire have alerted local members, supporters and residents to a planning application by the Crown Estates for 600 houses that would merge Mangrove Green and Cockernhoe with Luton.

Sixty years ago, in August 1955, Green Belts became government policy. Since then they have provided green space and fresh air for 30 million people and protected some of our most precious farmland and woodlands.
