VILLAGE DEVELOPMENTS - YOUR VIEWS COUNT

Re-development of the former Bulwer Lytton House site in Lytton Fields, and 111 London Road and a new site for the Doctors' Surgery are all hot issues in Knebworth at the moment. The Parish Council would like to find out our views, so they are setting aside an hour at their monthly meeting for public participation. The date for your diaries is Wednesday November 7th 8-9pm in the Village Hall.

BATTLE OF THE BRUSHES

Two acclaimed local artists, Denise Allen of Bramfield and Fiona Pruden of Welwyn, have challenged each other to a “Battle of the Brushes!” The two artists – both of Willow Watercolours – enjoy a bit of friendly banter and some healthy competition where their watercolours are concerned. Battle of the BrushesTo help settle the score both artists will open their home studios to the public between 11am and 4pm on the second Sunday of every month, ie Sunday 9th December, Sunday 13th January and Sunday 10th February etc, inviting all local art lovers and interested parties to take a leisurely wander between studios and choose which has ‘brushed up’ the better artworks for you to browse through or just snap-up a great commission-free bargain each month. Refreshments will be available - including home-made cakes in a proper ‘bake-off’ style - so put the dates in your diary and pay them both a visit.

JO SIMSON REPORTS

THE DOCTOR WILL SEE YOU SOONER:
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.

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 68 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.
