The campaign against proposals for a quarry just over 300 metres from Bengeo Primary School is gathering momentum with a summer of activities being planned.

Plans are underway for Bengeo Field Fun Day on Sunday 10th July with live music from local bands, food and drink and activities for all ages including a fancy dress competition and the Great Bengeo Bake Off. The event will take place on the playing fields of Bengeo Primary School between 12 and 4pm. There will also be an opportunity to talk to local councillors about the quarry proposals.

In the meantime, this Sunday (19th June) will see supporters have another chance to walk the field and take part in a treasure trail beginning at Sacombe Rd park at 10am. The route should take around an hour and everyone is welcome. Treasure maps can be bought on the day.

The campaign has gained support across Hertford and surrounding villages and it is now pleased to announce that Chapmore End Association has joined the campaign.

So far more than 870 letters of objection have been sent to planning officers at Hertfordshire County Council, but there is still an opportunity to voice your objection.
