CAN YOU HELP?

Do You Know Private W Humphrey?
Or, to be strictly accurate, do you know who he was? John Williams has embarked on a project to write a mini-biography for each of the names on Knebworth's War Memorial. Private W. Humphrey, a Frist World War casualty, is the only name whose link with the village John has been unable to trace. If you think you have any information contact John on 01438 811657, smedalsJ@aol.com.

Get Involved In An Exciting Community Theatre Project:

SHEDDING UNWANTED WEIGHT

The “Forever” Weight Loss Programme
I am telling you about this method of losing weight, because I am using it myself and have lost 35 lbs since January. It is brilliant, especially as I never feel hungry. I'm losing weight in preparation for an operation, but no matter what your incentive is, if you want to lose weight easily try the "Forever" Weight Loss Programme.

KNEBWORTH RUNNERS NETWORK

Liz Kirby and her friend started running training in January 2011 in preparation for a 10k charity run. Mow they are fitter than ever and totally hooked on the buzz they get from running; so much so that they decided to look for a local running club. Then it occurred to them, why drive to a running club when there are lots of beautiful running routes around Knebworth?

If you are interested in helping create or join a Knebworth runners' network, please contact Liz at lizkirby63@gmail.com. It doesn't matter what your motivation is - competition, getting fitter or simply becoming better acquainted with your fellow villagers.
