What's Happening in Hemel Hempstead & Surrounding #3

15 Jun 2017 Posted by: Guest blogger


Hello everyone!

I hope you enjoyed the last few weeks of rather mixed weather. We managed to squeeze in a couple of family BBQ’s which were lovely. I also spent a morning with the children making Father’s Day cards.

Blake and I visited the park at Bennetts End after a quick pop to the shops. It is a lovely park with some great equipment for the children to enjoy.


Enjoy some of the events listed below and remember to keep in touch with the local Facebook page for more information and pictures.
