Knebworth Tennis Club Hut was razed to the ground in a suspected arson attack in 2011. A new clubhouse has now risen, phoenix-like, from those ashes. The Club has also been awarded £40,000 by Sport England for floodlights (subject to planning permission being granted). Anyone for tennis should contact:

Flex Appeal
To make purchasing a new Vauxhall model, including a Limited Edition, even easier, customers could benefit from Vauxhall’s innovative Flexible Finance scheme, which enables customers to take advantage of zero per cent APR, payment terms that can vary between 24 and 60 months, and a deposit from as little as zero, allowing customers to drive away with a new model at a monthly payment to suit their personal budget. This means that customers could purchase a Corsa Limited Edition 1.2i VVT 3-door for just £189 a month over 60 months, with a customer deposit of £2,560. This includes a £750 Vauxhall Deposit Contribution.

What’s more, the warranty on the high-spec line-up is anything but limited. Vauxhall offers all customers peace of mind long after their purchase, thanks to its industry-leading Lifetime Warranty. Available to the first owner of all new Vauxhall cars, the warranty is valid for the lifetime of the vehicle up to a maximum of 100,000 miles.

All Limited Edition models are available to order now. To find out more, please visit Marshall Vauxhall online at www.marshallweb.co.uk.

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.
