General Discussion / Herts County Council Fault Reporting
« on: February 24, 2014, 02:37:26 pm »
For those who would like to report things such as potholes in roads, overhanging branches, blocked footways and much more, using the Herts County Council website can be confusing.

We've prepared a step by step PDF instruction guide, which should help those who are having any difficulty in using the website.
Read more by going to this link:

This workshop will introduce a range of materials which capture the history of Smallford station and the lives of the people who lived and worked in the surrounding community. Sources such as local maps, census material, trade directories and newspapers can all contribute to building a more nuanced picture of how Smallford developed in the 19th and 20th centuries, and reveal the part that the railway played in that development.

Tuesday 30th April 2013
1.30 – 4.30 PM
Room W108
Law Court Building, University of Hertfordshire, De Havilland Campus
Workshop Leader:  Julie Moore

Full details about the workshop are available on the Smallford website:

Please contact Jeff Lewis if you are wanting to attend this workshop and if you haven't already done so, please include what areas of research and exploration you are specifically interested in:;sa=email;uid=5

Attached below is a map to the UH campus building where the workshop will take place.
