Shenley residents shared memories of the village's shops and characters at an evening of reminiscence on Saturday.

Around 15 people recalled their memories, while being tape-recorded and filmed on video, which also included features of the Cage Pond in the past and transport before cars.

The evening was organised by the Shenley Village Society, which holds a meeting on the Saturday before Remembrance Sunday every year, with the chosen theme this year being reminiscence and oral history.

Most of the memories recounted dated back to the 1920s and 1930s, according to Hertsmere Borough Council's museums officer Julie Massey, who also attended the event at Shenley Village Hall.

She added: "We have gathered some really quite interesting stories from it.

"It was certainly worth doing, and we hope the people who came along learned something about the village."

Visitors to the evening were also able to visit a display being held at the hall on the history of Shenley, which includes Roman artefacts and photographs of local residents who lost their lives in the First and Second World Wars.
