CPRE Hertfordshire 2019 AGM

CPRE HERTFORDSHIRE 2019 AGM


Held at Woolmer Green Village Hall on Saturday 7 September, the AGM was a well attended meeting.
 
A new venue and a new day of the week was chosen in the hope that an increased number of people would be able to join us. The intention is to stay at this venue and day next year.
 
An interesting address, entitled “How can we ensure there is positive progress for our countryside?” was given by Tom Fyans, CPRE Deputy Chief Executive and Director of Policy and Campaigns. He also introduced the new look logo and branding to the meeting.
 
The usual business was covered and a vote of thanks was given to Eliza Hermann and Rick Sanderson whose terms of office as Trustees have ended. Allan McNab was appointed as a new Trustee.
 
Questions were taken from the floor and were followed by refreshments and a raffle, which raised £128. The homemade cakes were delicious.

Green Plots to Plots of Gold - Buyer Beware

Several years ago we at CPRE Hertfordshire learned about what we call "plotlands". These are created by the land owner and are plots of land that are about 1/6th of an acre, enough on which to build at least one house.

Berkhamsted Common Late Autumn Walk

This 4.1 mile circular walk starts and ends at the rail station in Berkhamsted in the west of the county HP4 2AJ . Nearly all of the walk is within the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the first half of the route follows part of the Hertfordshire Way, the 195 mile long-distance path around the whole of Hertfordshire.

Now Postponed

CPRE county branches, including CPRE Hertfordshire, across the East of England are holding a one day conference on Water Resources on Wednesday, 29th April 2020 at the Fleet Community Centre, Fletton, Peterborough.

CPRE Hertfordshire objects to this expansion. We have a climate emergency. It urges members and residents to say no to the proposals to grow Luton Airport from 18 to 32 million passengers per annum. The consultation runs to the 16th December 2019.  https://futureluton.llal.org.uk/ . CPRE Hertfordshire endorses the fact that people and organisations are questioning their need to fly more than ever, and that the alternatives to flying must be improved. As people vote with their feet the forecasts of air traffic growth are unsound as well as highly damaging.

2019 Rural Living Awards Presented

 

 

The Presentation Evening in October was a successful evening celebrating efforts made by individuals, groups and businesses to improve life in their community and/or to enhance the environment in Hertfordshire.

 

The Award Scheme recognises those who work so hard to protect, promote and enhance the countryside and towns or villages to make Hertfordshire a better place to live, work, go to school or enjoy for today and the future. Everyone was eager to hear who would be receiving an Award.

Our thanks go to the Chair of Herts County Council who sponsored the evening. Mayors, Chairs and Councillors from the District and Borough Councils joined the celebrations and everyone was delighted to hear about the amazing things happening across the county.

2019 Children’s Art Competition - Results

This is a long standing and well-loved part of the CPRE Hertfordshire calendar, in 2019 the theme was The Trees of Hertfordshire. The children were asked to think about trees; what they look like from a distance or close up, the ecosystems they support and how trees help to keep a balance in nature and the benefits they bring to health and wellbeing. The trees could be in the countryside, in their garden, school grounds or anywhere else. We hope this encourages children to enjoy the natural world through art

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

The 2019 Autumn Walk is a 4.6 mile circular walk which takes in some lovely countryside in the Brocket Hall estate, through the Lea Valley, and along the Ayot Greenway.
