Town centre redevelopment goes up a gear


BURNS UNIT Hats off to all involved in Hope for Children’s Burns Night at Abbots Hill School on 24 January. The evening, fi lled with Scottish delights, raised an incredible £4,300 in aid of HfC’s East African projects.


SCHOOLWORK Two local schools are undergoing facelifts. Kings Langley School and Hemel Hempstead’s Longdean School are being redeveloped under the national £2bn Priority School Building Programme. Works are due to be completed in the summer of 2016.

Work is steaming ahead on the Marlowes pedestrianised shopping area as the council’s £30m Hemel Evolution regeneration programme goes up a gear. Phase one was completed at the end of last year, and work is now progressing between the Rainbow Memorial and Bridge Street. This will include an interactive fountain


and digital screen, more play areas, new toilets, new paving and trees and an events space for performances. Work on Waterhouse Street, including the taxi rank and dedicated disabled parking spaces from Bridge Street, is expected to start in early spring, while Bank Court works will follow.


Another signifi cant part of the regeneration is the work on Jellicoe’s Gardens. So far, a number of trees have been removed to open the gardens up, increase the light levels and protect the restored footpaths from future root damage. For more information go to www.dacorum. gov.uk/hemelevolution.


Lockers Park to open pre-prep school


Lockers Park School plans to open a Pre-Preparatory School in September this year. Lockers Park, with more than 140 years of history in the town, takes boys from 5-13yrs. The new purpose-built Pre-Preparatory School will open the school up for children aged 4-6yrs with dedicated facilities for children from Reception through to year 2. It will be co-ed, while the existing Prep School (aged 7-13yrs) will remain boys-only.


Headmaster Christopher Wilson said: ‘The launch of the Pre- Preparatory School is a very exciting new chapter in our long history.’
