AGM - 22nd October
A big thank you to everyone who contributed to the enormous success of the 2012 Knebworth Village Festival, which helped a large number of Local Organisations.

It was a truly community event enjoyed by all the Village. this yea2012rs Festival was organized by the following small group of people from the Village: Henry Cobbold, Pam Culley, John Drake, Rebecca Goldby, Derek Harrison, Sam Jellett, Ann Judge, Jennie Moult, John Warner-Smith and Brian Worthington.

If the Village wishes the Festival to happen next year then please come to the AGM on the 22nd October and show your interest and support. The Festival will not happen unless we have help from the Village. This does not necessarily involve attending meetings but just committing to organising an event /activity or just helping on theday. If you cannot attend the AGM but would like to help in some way, however small, then please email brianworthington@me.com


New arrangements for booking appointments at the Knebworth Surgery are designed to give added flexibility for seeing a Doctor or Nurse. From this week the appointments line (01438 812494) will be open from 8.30am and all the appointments for the day will become available. This replaces the system which required patients to try again at 11.30am. Did you know you can also book appointments online? Contact the surgery to register for Systmonline.

The feasting continues in the Parish Centre on October 6 with an Indian Curry Night at 6.30 for 7pm. For just £10, you can enjoy an authentic Indian Curry and a sweet. Contact Margaret Webb on 01438 811795, email maggiewebb63@googlemail.com but hurry, they are limited to 50. All proceeds to Church funds.

Sadly you won't be able to get one from Val's Kitchen in Station Road between September 29 and October 6 as Roger and Val are taking a well-earned break for a week. Business as usual on October 8 though.

Safety First
Local dealer, Marshall Vauxhall, is encouraging drivers in Hertfordshire to put safety first this September, as the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) reveals that the school run is one of the most dangerous times for drivers to take to the road. With dark mornings and evenings on the way, the dealer with branches in Knebworth and Welwyn Garden City, is keen to share top tips with drivers and families, to help keep children safe when walking to and from school.

According to RoSPA, around 30 child pedestrians are killed or seriously injured every week in Great Britain. And encouragingly, whilst this number seems to be falling year on year, for this trend to continue, the need for drivers to be extra-vigilant is more important than ever...more


KNEBWORTH YOUTH PROJECT will start the Autumn term in good shape. County Councillor Richard Thake has allocated £1,000 from his locality budget to buy new equipment and improve the Pavilion Youth Café/Club. North Herts District council has also chipped in with a £500 grant to buy a new games console and some Wii games. The Project runs sessions on Thursday at the Pavilion in the recreation ground off Watton Road and on Friday in Trinity Church.

If you enjoy working with young people, Knebworth Youth Project would love to hear from you. They have vacancies for adult volunteers on their Thursday and Friday evening sessions. No experience necessary, but a sense of humour and endless patience are essential. The Youth Project is also looking for a part-time paid youth worker available to work on term-time Thursday and Friday evenings, approximately seven hours per week. Contact Brian Hughes on 01438 813049, email Click Here. Knebworth Youth Project is managed by Trinity Church with support from the Knebworth Village Trust, Knebworth Parish Council and other local organisations.

Jo Simson


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.
