July 2006

An enthusiastic welcome and very best wishes to John Noades our new mayor in his term in office. Thanks are also due to our ex-mayor Jean Cook for her period in office and her generously warm hearted contribution to the town.

The Council's newsletter is currently being distributed and BCS would like to put forward an idea for a future edition. It would be well worthwhile if our new mayor in consultation with his colleagues and others formulated a 'vision' for Buntingford and put into a few words how they see the town developing over the next few years.We are sure that most people would be pleased to have such a statement.

It has been very encouraging to receive many offers of help to clean-up the Rib where it runs through the town.Clearly, the Rib is high in the affection of townsfolk and they are saddened by the disregard shown by the casual dumping of rubbish in the river.

We plan to have a clean-up in late summer and have received a commitment to provide equipment and cover on health and safety issues from Jenny Greaves EHC Environment Officer and we are following-up with the Environmental Agency the cutting back of weed growth on the numerous silt beds. That has to be done with great care as mammal and bird life is widespread in some areas.

Richard Prince is leading this project for BCS and who knows as a peripatetic music teacher he may introduce a musical accompaniment - Handel's Water Music?

Well done to Hertfordshire Highways for at long last replacing missing railings on Baldock Road and at the High Street entrance to Layston Gardens. A big bone of contention is the cracked pavements in the High Street which have been the cause of several accidents. It looks as if this problem is being addressed as we understand that Hertfordshire Highways have recently inspected the High Street with a representative of the paving stone manufacturer. We live in hope!

Finally, Buntingford Civic Society wish you all a happy summer - the September edition of the Journal will be in the shops and delivered to members end August.

Derek K Cooper, Chairman. July 2006.
