Children's art competition 2019

CPRE Hertfordshire is committed to the protection, promotion and enhancement of the environment within Hertfordshire, to make it a better place to live, work, go to school or enjoy for today and tomorrow.  As part of this, we run a Children’s Art Competition.  We invite all the primary schools within Hertfordshire to enter and to encourage the children to express themselves through art.   If you would like your child to participate then we would ask you to speak to your child’s teacher, a copy of the invitation sent to schools is attached to this post.

Site LA3 West of Hemel Hempstead CPRE Comments see attachments

CPRE are thrilled that the UK Government has recently opened a consultation for a proposed

Deposit Return Scheme (DRS) for drinks containers.

This year our walks will explore more of Hertfordshire’s beautiful countryside and diverse landscapes.

 

"This 5 mile 'figure of eight' walk takes in several woods and fields in the southwest of the county in the Three Rivers and Watford Districts.
The walk also includes the Grand Union Canal towpath and the Nature Reserve in Cassiobury Park. A shorter walk is possible by doing either one, but not both, of the loops in the 'figure of eight'.  Start and finish are at Whippendell Woods car park on Grove Mill Lane, north of Watford. The walk can also be accessed using public transportation: take the Metropolitan Underground Line to its terminus at Watford Station and then walk through Cassiobury Park.  Although CPRE did this walk in February and it was lovely then, optimal timing may be late April / early May when the woods should be carpeted in bluebells."

Since January 2012 Hertfordshire Life magazine has featured a regular monthly article by CPRE Hertfordshire. Most of these are written by Elizabeth Hamilton. Elizabeth began by detailing the epic fundraising walk she undertook on our behalf. Elizabeth, her husband Ian, Eliza Hermann and Eliza's husband Mark Adams walked all 197 miles of the Hertfordshire Way. Click the links below for our Hertfordshire Life articles.
