Earlier this year, BPC asked Herts & Middlesex Wildlife Trust, to produce a brief  plan to create a Water Meadow in Pentlows Meadow.

The Brief can be read here >>>. BPC would be interested to hear the views of Parishioners on these proposals. In the autumn, we plan to produce a more detailed brief. We will consult with parishioners more widely at that stage before we appoint a design consultant who would bring the idea to life. Please can you send any comments to the clerk here >>> before the end of August.

Braughing Parish CouncilSpotted in BraughingCovid 19 Hertfordshire, St Mary's Church

Please respect our village environment and enjoy your visit.

It is evidenced that some visitors to our village, vehicles passing through and cyclists, do not respect our environment. Some vehicle drivers litter our paths and hedgerows, some cyclists discard punctured inner tubes - on the spot fine of £150.  The residents of Braughing are particularly insistent that visitors and passers by respect the place where we live and will photograph and report offenders.

St Mary’s Church is now a Food Bank Agency for Bishops Stortford and Buntingford Food Banks - Charity Number 154800. There is a huge need for help and support for some in our communities and according to the Buntingford Foodbank, numbers in need have doubled in the last 3 months and Food Bank boxes can be delivered to anyone in our villages.

St Mary's Braughing and Furneux Pelham are FOOD BANK COLLECTION POINTS with food collection containers. Leaflets next to the containers list items needed by the Foodbanks and the food will be regularly picked up from the churches.
