Smithson Recreation Park Saved

I would like to congratulate all those involved with the campaign to preserve Smithson Recreation Park on the fantastic news received this morning Monday 18th January that following the consultation process on the matter that Groundwork Hertfordshire and NHDC are now working together to refine the plans to in order to retain the large grass area in the middle of the site.

Smithson Recreation Ground was donated to the Community by renowned local woman and Suffragette Sarah Smithson in 1926 and is valuable outdoor playing space for the children of our community.

I would also like to applaud all those involved, nearly 100 people, in turning out last Sunday afternoon to protest in Smithson Park and also in establishing a public Facebook group that in less than one week has nearly 300 members.

Well done to all those involved,
