Law And Order

2nd of September 2002

Statistics tell us that Chipperfield has one of the lowest crime rates in Dacorum but this does not make the recent spate of acts of theft and vandalism in the village any more palatable. There are vandals in our midst, some from our community and some from outside, who are prepared amongst other things to […]

Chipperfield Corinthians Football Club Centenary Ball

2nd of September 2002

Congratulations to all those involved in putting on such a wonderful evening. It was a credit to all concerned – to get over 300 people together at one event takes some doing. Many of those present had played for the club at some time during the past 50 years and some had travelled over 100 […]

Clean-up On The Common & In The Village

Anyone who walks on The Common or through the village cannot help noticing the quantity of dog waste on footpaths, verges and in open spaces.

Roger Frank Johnson 1932-2002

It is with great sadness that we record the death of Roger Johnson of Callipers Hall Farm on 26 May, following complications after an operation.

Its Not All Black And White

2nd of July 2002

Once the great spotted woodpeckers start to drum on dead branches to proclaim their territories in spring their visits to our peanut feeders increase.
