Monday marks the start of Mental Health Awareness Week. Research shows that connecting with nature has the power to both prevent and aid recovery from poor mental health.
Voting for all Wheathampstead electors is in the Memorial Hall. To make arrangements Covid secure there is a one way system, but you will see directions. Just arrive, as usual, but with your mask and cast that vote. If you have a postal vote and forgot to post it off, follow the instructions, pop it in its envelopes and this can also be taken to one of the polling stations in the Memorial Hall.
The bluebells are looking lovely at the moment. Why not enjoy a spring walk along Devil’s Dyke, our very own Statutory Ancient Monument?
But please don’t pick them. And take any rubbish away.
Huge thanks to all involved – members of our community, police, local authorities.
We, St Albans District Council, Herts County Council and Herts Police are aware of the unauthorised encampment on Butterfield Playing Fields. Police visited the site early this morning.
HRH The Prince Philip

Wheathampstead Parish Council joins the nation in mourning the death of His Royal Highness, The Duke of Edinburgh.
With deep sorrow Her Majesty The Queen has announced the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness, Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh who passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle.
The Duke was married to the Queen Elizabeth II for more than 70 years and became the longest serving Consort in British History.
In light of the current restrictions our plans have been amended. We are unable to open a physical book of condolence but suggest that those wishing to share condolences with the Royal Family may choose to use the Hertfordshire Lord Lieutenant’s online book of remembrance .
