As part of the extremely successful exhibition "History of Buntingford High Street", held in September/October, there was also a competition for children involving questions about the High Street. The competition was aimed at 2 age groups.

The winners of the competition were: Under 7's age group - Eloise Barrett and 8 to16 age group - Isabelle Barrett Both girls received Smyths Gift Vouchers sponsored by the Civic Society. The prizes were presented to the girls by our Town Mayor, Cllr Duncan Wallace at the Buntingford Library on 26th October. Congratulations to you both, enjoy your vouchers.

Many of you are probably wondering what is happening with the future of the Health Centre. It has been the main topic of conversation for some time now and it is expected that the developer, Taylor Wimpey, will be submitting a Planning Application to East Herts Planning sometime in December. We will be working with the Town Council in the preparation of an appropriate response to any application in an effort to ensure the best outcome for the Town and its residents both present and future.

By the time you read this journal the town will have already commemorated those that gave their lives in conflict, I hope that the service and dedication at the War Memorial was as well attended as it has been in past years.

On Friday 1st December the "Lights of Love" ceremony will be held at the Manor House, a collaboration between the Town Council and Isabel Hospice. This ceremony is a chance for us all to remember those friends and relatives that are sadly no longer with us but are always in our thoughts. The ceremony also marks the start of the Towns Christmas Celebrations with the switching on of the town Christmas Lights and the "Late Night Shopping" event, organised by the Buntingford Chamber of Commerce.

I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of the Civic Society to wish all residents of Buntingford, Civic Society members and all readers of this Journal a very Merry Christmas and a Healthy and Prosperous 2024 and that you are able to spend time with family and friends over the Christmas period. As this issue of the Journal covers December and January, we will be back in February, keep safe and well
