We finish our review of the year, of course, in December as we prepare to say goodbye to 2018 and welcome in the New Year.

But what happened this month?

Well, it was an exciting time for children as the Coca-Cola Christmas truck arrived for the very first time in Borehamwood in mid-December.

The giant red lorry popped up at Tesco Extra as part of its country-wide tour and plenty of kids (and adults!) took the chance to snap a photo of themselves in front of the truck which we are all so used to seeing on our TV screens.

There was good news for Hertsmere MP Oliver Dowden and commuters in Radlett, and Potters Bar, after the Department for Transport announced it would be extending the Oyster card.

Currently, only passengers up until Elstree & Borehamwood on the Thameslink line could use the Oyster but following campaign work from Mr Dowden, this has now been extended.

A warning to drivers after dozens of crews were found lying on Brook Road and near Tempsford Avenue in Borehamwood. Believed to be a deliberate act, some drivers have already fallen victim and experienced damage to their cars.

While neighbours did their best to get their voices heard as the Hertsmere local plan consultation came to a close. Hertsmere has to build around 7,500 homes over the next ten to 15 years and is currently seeking public opinion on where may be best to build new houses.

Thank you for joining us and have a happy new year.

Here’s to 2019.
