This summer North Herts is hosting a wide range of events, so if your travel plans have been disrupted, enjoy a daytrip out in your local area, or treat friends and family to live music, theatre, or a day at one of the region’s stunning lidos!
Councillors from North Herts District Council (NHDC) have teamed up with volunteers from Letchworth’s Friends of Norton Common (FoNC) to celebrate Love Parks Week 2021.
Councillors and FoNC volunteers rolled up their sleeves and worked together to cut back brambles alongside the wildflower meadow on Norton Common Local Nature Reserve. They also helped to dig out dead tree roots – all part of essential ongoing habitat management work to care for the site.
As the economy starts to re-open, we’re here to support local businesses and encourage residents to take the next steps safely.
This summer North Herts has lots of events happening right on your doorstep, so why not meet up with friends and family and make the most of them!
Please remember it is still advised to take due care and to wear a mask on public transport, shops, visits to healthcare practitioners and in busy enclosed spaces.
