  • North Mymms Parish Council

    Civic Parish Councils, which were set up in 1894 by an Act of Parliament introduced by the then Prime Minister, William Ewart Gladstone are regarded as being the “grass roots’ of democracy and local government.

    The first Parish Meeting in North Mymms was held on 4th December 1894 and the first actual Parish Council Meeting was on 2nd January 1895 under the provisional chairmanship of Samuel Gurney Sheppard Esquire. At the next meeting, on 26th February 1895, Archibald Thompson Esquire JP of Mimmwood took over the chairmanship. He continued as Chairman until 1907 when Admiral Sir J Fellowes KCB of Roestock Manor took over until 1913. Chairmen are now retired automatically on a yearly basis.The first ‘lady’ Chairman was Councillor Mrs Pat Storey in 1979-80.North Mymms parish is one of the largest in Hertfordshire, its main source of income is a precept which is part of your Council Tax. Other income is derived from hiring out the bowling green, football field etc.Parish councils have legal powers as defined in various Acts, but they have fewer duties than district councils and greater freedom to choose what actions to take.

    They represent the interests of the local communities and seek to improve the quality of life and local environment, influencing decisions and delivering services to meet local needs.North Mymms covers 1892.77 hectares and in the 2011 census the number of ‘usual residents’ was 8921.North Mymms parish includes Brookmans Park, Welham Green, Bell Bar, Water End, Bullens Green, Marshmoor, North Mymms Park and Church and part of Little Heath. The full council usually meets at 7.30pm on the last Wednesday of each month except August and December.

    All meetings are open to the public.

    North Mymms Crest

    The top left-hand quarter is the balloon of the Italian aeronaut Vincenzo Lunardi who flew from the Artillery Ground, London to Standon Green End, Hertfordshire on 15 September 1784 in the first manned aerial flight over England. Travelling with Lunardi was a pigeon, a cat, and a dog. During the flight the cat took ill and Lunardi briefly landed his balloon in a North Mymms field to leave the animal with a local woman while he continued his flight. The field where Lunardi touched down is three miles south-east of Welham Green north of what is now Queenswood school. To mark the event, a commemorative stone was placed at what is known as Balloon Corner, at the junction of Dellsome Lane and Parsonage Lane, Welham Green. You can read the article Here https://www.northmymmshistory.uk/2020/06/the-historic-north-mymms-balloon-landing.html

    The top right hand quarter is a stag or hart representing Hertfordshire.

    The bottom left hand quarter is Folly Arch, Hawkshead Road, Little Heath. It was built in 1740 to a design attributed to James Gibbs as a feature of the Gobions Estate. Click here for a picture of Folly Arch. For more detail visit www.northmymmshistory.uk and search against Folly Arch.

    The bottom right hand quarter is the parish church of St Mary’s at North Mymms Park. The original church had a spire but this was removed in the 1900s. Click here for a picture taken about 1905 of the church showing the spire.

    In the bottom section, the green triangle represents the Triangulation Point used by surveyors for accurate positioning.

    The trees represent Gobions Wood, Brookmans Park. The wavy lines represent water. This could be a reference to the Three Valleys Water Co which has a pumping station on Warrengate Road, North Mymms, or maybe the lake at Gobions?.

  • Parish Charities

    Charitable donations

    The Parish Charity was set up hundreds of years ago to assist those in poverty and gave food originally – a gift of bread was given to widows. This is now updated and it gives money instead to widows or widowers who qualify. The work of the Parish Charity therefore continues.

    It seeks to help people who are in some financial difficulty. This is on the basis of regular donations and additionally small Easter gifts. Widows and widowers in need of assistance should be put forward to the Trustees. The Charity is actively seeking people to give support to, or indeed, any person who knows of Widows and Widowers who are in need and living in the parish.

    This is of course in total confidence and recipients are not publically revealed. Please contact the Clerk, Mr John Potter, via the council office for further information..

  • Stop Rogue Traders

    Hertfordshire County Council warns residents to be vigilant against rogue traders On average, almost 250 reports of rogue trading are made each year in Hertfordshire, but it is estimated that only between five and 20 per cent of these crimes are reported – that’s why Hertfordshire County Council’s Trading Standards team is advising residents to follow a few top tips: Say no to doorstep callers. Do not buy goods or services at the door. If you are considering having work done, always shop around first and get at least three quotes. You can search for a Hertfordshire Trading Standards Approved Trader on the Which? Trusted Traders website or by calling Trading Standards. Honest businesses agree pricing beforehand, including VAT. There’s no evidence without a written contract. Avoid paying cash in hand. It’s better to pay by bank transfer or cheque, as these can be traced. If you think you or a vulnerable relative or neighbour has become the victim of a rogue trader, report it straight away. David Russell, 67, from Ware, contacted a local trader when he had a problem with a drain in his back garden. “From the beginning, the trader didn’t seem the least bit friendly. After about an hour he came and he said, ‘Well, this is going to cost more than we thought […] because I need more equipment.’ He was there for about five hours altogether, and as time went on seemed to get unhappier.” The trader quoted him £200, but David was charged almost £1,500 – for a job that wasn’t done to a satisfactory standard. “I did write a cheque and when I thought about it the next day or so, I thought, well this is really a bit too much, I should take advice on this. I was speaking to friends, and one of them recommended that I go to Trading Standards. I phoned them up and spoke to them and they said, ‘Well, the first thing to do is to cancel the cheque.’.” David was lucky as he contacted Trading Standards quickly and was able to cancel his cheque before it was cashed. As the trader had failed to give cancellation rights or indicate VAT-inclusive prices, Trading Standards brought him to court, where he pleaded guilty and was fined a total of £2,400 for David’s case and two others. The company he worked for was also fined a total of £5,600.
