They are calling it a heat wave - which is fine by me, although in all honestly, it does feel a little too hot! I hate to complain, though, so I tell myself to pull down the shades and drink more water, which is probably good advice for us all.

Anyway, this month there’s plenty to talk about, including the excellent concert at St Helen’s Church held in honour and to celebrate the 300th Anniversary of the James Marshall Foundation. We also heard about the Professional lady golfers who took part in the Pro Am competition at Mid Herts Golf Club, and the fund raising successes in aid of the very worthy charity Just One Click Away (JOCA) at local Music festival, Jocafest. There was a real party spirit at the long awaited village day weekend and we share plenty of pics of the parade and local people having fun on Marford Field.

Local Resilience highlights the increase in Covid numbers across our communities while Health Matters looks at Diabetes and managing the potential risks to protect yourself.

Two local hospices explained their plans to merge whilst local man Paul Mutlow told us about his personal training business and the benefits for longevity of life associated with fitness.

As ever, there is plenty to do and see in and around our area or within easy reach listed in our What’s On section.
