On my latest visit to this website I have just read the October issue of Chipperfield News and came across the advert for ‘Hollyberry Fair’. Now in my 66th year, and having moved north in 1975, this provided a nostalgic link to my childhood in the village in the 50s/60s. I am pleasantly surprised that this tradition has survived!

I would recommend you look at this site http://www.hnhs.org/birds/index.php which provides details of local sightings of birds. I hope it helps
I have just purchased a wonderful new pair of binoculars while at Cley Marshes Norfolk, I now need places to watch birds in this area – can anyone help with this? Thank youOctober 14, 2013 John Dickinson
Having just discovered this site and read Mrs M’s comments above, may I put forward a different view.
The banner in question was far from lovely, it appeared to be an advertisement for the Boot pub attached to a hedge. I remember thinking at the time whether it was right that a local business should be hijacking a village event that is always held on the common.
The Parish Council perform many valuable services for the village, only one of which is to protect our village from a plethora of ugly advertising signs that would otherwise appear.
The councillors are genuine people who want to give something to the village, and are prepared to stand up and be counted. They deserve our thanks for this and not ill-informed abuse.
I have just driven up Tower Hill and noticed that the lovely banner advertising the Chipperfield Village Day has disappeared. On further investigation is appears that the rather over zealous people at the Parish Council have decided that having the banner on the corner contravenes planning law.
This beggars belief – are these people real?
The banner is advertising something that is of interest to the people of Chipperfield and will benefit the people of Chipperfield so why insist on taking it down. Is that not what the Parish Council are supposed to do – ie. work for the benefit of the village?
I, for one, am disgusted that these Parish Council people think that they have the God given right to behave in this disgraceful way.
From checking my council tax bill I can see that we pay for their existence – what a total waste of money. What we are paying for are a few geriatric old dinosaurs to stick their nose in matters that are no concern of theirs simply because they have nothing else to do!
I will be lobbying Dacorum to make the Parish Council contribution voluntary – that will give an indication of how unpopular these people are!
Can anybody on this webpage or in the Parish council shed any light on when BT Openreach will install fibre into the village. I have lived in the village since August 2012, and the promised date has slipped back and back and currently states ‘earliest June 2013’. A BT Openreach cabinet on the edge of Kings Langley is clearly marked with “Super fast broadband is available here” – only a couple of miles away from Chipperfield.
I understand that the Parish council may have some control over planner consent for a new / adapted by the road side cabinet. Is this true and what is the status? Is the Parish council blocking any planning application by BT Openreach?
I am simply trying to find out what the issues may be from all involved and/or affected.February 14, 2013 Carol johnson
Our lovely Black & White cat Lola is missing from tower hill area since 6/2/2013. She’s short haired and quite small. Her body is mainly black but she has a white chest and a white patch down the middle of her face. She doesn’t wear a collar but is chipped. Shes quite shy so likely to run if approached. Her sister is still at home and missing her terribly. We’d be very grateful if you would check sheds, outbuildings etc in case she has got trapped in somewhere (she’s very nosy!)
If you have seen her, or have any news, good or bad please contact carol or Sarah on 01442 833979. Thank youFebruary 13, 2013 abby
