Gardeners are being encouraged to help give Studio Way a make-over.

Following the production of a management plan for the site, the Countryside Management Service is appealing for volunteers to help makeover the area.

Work will start by taking down the old rabbit fencing around the young trees, while later in the year it will include thinning the trees and removing weaker plants to allow the stronger ones to thrive.

The task will start at 10am on September 3, and volunteers are asked to meet near the play area in Potterswood Park on Denham Way.

Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided, though people should bring something to eat if they intend to stay all day, and all tools and equipment will also be handed out.

To get involved, contact ciaran.mullan@hertfordshire.gov.uk

What's next, a fill-in potholes party? These jobs are what we pay our council tax for. I agree that this work needs doing, as does the area between Denham Way and Rowley Lane which is woefully neglected, but getting the public to do a job that the council already pay a contractor to do just doesn't seem right.

I agree with you. The Council is very keen for developers to put in lots of trees and bushes but nothing is done to maintain them. I have been on at HCC for 3 years to get a particularly overgrown tree in Denham Way cut back all to no avail. However, Potters Wood Park trees are regularly maintained possibly at the expense of the highways and pathways. HCC web page to report faults is quite good in some ways but for some inexplicable reason Denham Way seems to 'morph' into Danziger Way and you can't email directly to that section. The only answer is to put the fault in again, which delays matters, only for Danziger Way to come up again. Very frustrating.
