Working with Herts County Council and using s106 funding, Wheathampstead Parish Council is enhancing the grassland adjacent to the Butterfield Nature Reserve and extending accessible access to the Village.
We aim to:
- Restore chalk grassland habitat by removing scrub and vegetation
- Retain neutral grassland habitat by replacing aging grazing infrastructure and securing the fence to the sheep enclosure
- Install new 1.16km hard surfaced circular path and redress existing path to improve access and link with public footpath network.

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.
