The planters in the Dip and Crestway are in place but the next stage is to get some public art in these areas. There is a small amount of money but this can be used as match funding. Pupils at Hertford Junior have done some fabulous designs of how they would like the Dip to look – they are displayed in Rutters’ window (next to the Employability centre). If you are interested please contact Liz on 236160 or elizabethlee@trustdevcom.org.uk.

There is a meeting at St Richards, Beal Crescent on Tuesday 19 November 7.30pm. This will be an opportunity to talk about plans for the Dip and Crestway, as well as other local community projects.  All are welcome.
