We all remembered in November as the country marked 100 years since the end of the First World War.

There were huge turnouts and ceremonies across Hertsmere, where people pay tribute to the fallen who had served to protect us.


But the remembrance weekend turned a little sour after poppy sellers were asked to move on from Borehamwood Shopping Park. Agents for the site, Savills, said it was for health and safety reasons as the sellers didn’t have permission but Savills apologised for the fall-out from the incident and said it would make a donation to the Borehamwood Royal British Legion branch.


Shoppers in Shenley were in for a nasty shock after ram-raiders ripped out a cash machine at Tesco Express, although they left empty-handed.

It was a scene of devastation outside the shop and Tesco was forced to stay closed for health and safety works. The damage is still apparent to this day.

Meanwhile Hertsmere Borough Council announced it had successfully been granted an injunction allowing them to move on any travellers which camped on its land without having to go through the courts.

It is a temporary injunction but the council is seeking to extend it to five years. The council carried out its new powers when caravans parked up in the car park next to the council’s offices in Borehamwood.

Transport for London announced it would be pressing ahead with its plans to install a toucan crossing at Stirling Corner on the A1 subject to funding, following a consultation.
