Christmas Tree Lights Official Switch-on and Carols around the tree

WHEN - Wednesday 12 December 2018
WHERE - The Square, Braughing

For the first time Braughing has its own Christmas Tree in The Square. The testing is complete and we are ready for the official opening by Peter Boylan, Chairman of Braughing Parish Council. After the 'switching on' there will be carols around the tree lead by our own Braughing Sing. Please come and enjoy this joyous event.

Here are a few images of the 11 November 2018 commemoration in Braughing

However, in the next few days there will be a WWI area here dedicated to this event with a gallery of photographs for you to enjoy.  In the meantime please enjoy and reflect. The order of service can be downloaded here >>>

Report Dog Fouling to our local council - do you want a picture of YOU, and your dogs poo, featured here?

There are currently 23 bins in the parish which are either dedicated dog bins or multi-purpose bins which should be used for disposing of bagged dog poo and litter, please use them. The dog bin map of Braughing is available here >>>

The increase in dog fouling in Braughing has reached epidemic proportions.  So this is what we are going to do.

  • If you see a fouling incident please photograph it on your mobile - the dog pooing and a picture of the owner
  • Report it to the 'FixMyStreet' website and upload the photo, which links to East Herts District Council
  • FixMyStreet is found here >>>

We hope that by taking this action as a community we can put an end to this disgusting, foul practice which is a health hazard - particularly to our children.  Please support this cause which has the full backing of Braughing Parish Council.
