What a wonderful turnout at the war memorial to remember the 100th anniversary of the ending of World War 1. It is so gratifying to see so many people who wish to pay their respects and remember all those brave souls who paid the ultimate price for us all. Before the memorial service a stone commissioned by Buntingford Town Council commemorating the 100th anniversary was unveiled and blessed by the Reverend Ian Hill. That, along with the two 'there but not there' silhouettes, gave the occasion added poignancy.

To further commemorate the event an exhibition was set up in the Manor House with many WW1 artefacts on display. The exhibition was arranged by Buntingford Town Council, the Royal British Legion and Freman College and many thanks are due to all those who gave of their time to put on such a fine display. Special thanks must go to Graham Waite for all of the research he undertook to ensure that the exhibition duly honoured all those Buntingford men who went off to fight but never returned.

It is with much satisfaction that I can report that the road surface at the Watermill Estate (particularly the entrance to the estate and the area by the Council dump) has at last been repaired. This has been a long running saga with no one wishing to take responsibility for the repairs. Perseverance, in this case, finally paid off.

At the request of Buntingford Town Council, East Herts District Council reviewed the governance arrangements for the Parish of Buntingford. It was felt that the new Redrow development should sit within the Parish of Buntingford and not Cottered as is currently the case. East Herts District Council have agreed and, pending a formal resolution, the Redrow estate will be classed as within the Parish of Buntingford.
