Chorleywood Community Champion Award
During the Pandemic there have been some fantastic examples of good deeds and people going above and beyond to help others in time of need. In February the Parish Council launched the Community Champion Award and received seven nominations all of whom received a medal of recognition and gratitude.
In an exciting joint venture, the charity Mission EmployAble is raising money, along with the Cricket Club, for a new pavilion and café to replace the existing clubhouse.
Work is currently underway to finalise the details of the project before work commences on site. Once completed, inside the pavilion, Mission EmployAble’s café will serve delicious homemade food to families, runners, keep fit groups, dog walkers and cricket fans. Uniquely, it will be staffed by young adults with learning disabilities, who will be trained and supported by the charity.
To make a donation to Mission EmployAble, to keep up to date with the building’s progress and for details of forthcoming fundraising events, visit: missionemployable.co.uk
Re-instatement of Parking control measures at the Common permissive parking areas
At a meeting of the Full Council on the 28th July 2020, Councillors agreed to re-instate the parking enforcement scheme at War Memorial Hall, Shepherds Bridge and the Old Shepherd permissive parking areas. The scheme has been suspended for five months during the height of the Coronavirus lockdown and restrictions.
Following maintenance of the ticket machines, the enforcement will now restart on the 10th of September but for the period 10th to the 27th September zero charge warning tickets will be issued to help people get used to the system being back in place. However, from the 28th September anyone found parking without displaying a ticket (or residents/visitors pass for the Old Shepherd permissive parking area) in these areas between 1pm and 3pm Monday to Friday will be issued with a penalty charge ticket.
Lost and Found Property | Changes to Procedures
The police service has traditionally accepted the responsibility of recording all lost and found property, despite there being no statutory duty to do this. In February, police forces nationally stopped receiving reports of lost property and now accept only certain types of found items. Hertfordshire has come in line with these policies.
The below link to our website provides detailed advice about what to do if you have lost or found property.
