Extended Dates for St Albans Christmas Market

Extended Dates for St Albans Christmas Market

St Albans Christmas Market is being extended due to popular demand and will run for four weeks right up until 23 December - the Saturday before Christmas. The market is set to start on Saturday 25 November, followed by a spectacular launch party on Sunday 26 November to coincide with the Christmas Lights Switch-on. 

Chalet-style stalls located in the picturesque Vintry Garden next to St Albans Cathedral will sell festive gifts, stocking-fillers, decorations and treats. Visitors will be able to feast on food and drink, including HATCH hot chocolate, mulled wine, mince pies, Bratwurst sausages and speciality beer. They will also be treated to a range of entertainment and have the opportunity to visit Santa's Grotto. 

Last year the market attracted the largest number of visitors ever - 118,000 people across the 25 days it was open. This was up 15% on the 103,000 who visited the market the previous year. As in previous years,


Police Station Site Bought by Council

Police Station Site Bought by Council

St Albans City and District Council's City centre redevelopment plans have taken a significant step forward with the purchase of the former police station in Victoria Street. 

The Council wants to rejuvenate St Albans City centre by building new offices, homes and retail units as well as improving public open spaces and walkways. This follows the public design meeting for the site organised by the independent, community-led group Look! St Albans, in September 2016. 

Earlier this year, the Hertfordshire Police and Crime Commissioner agreed to sell the former police station to the Council following a competitive bidding process for the site. The Council completed the purchase on 25 October. The Council is also planning to buy the former NHS Clinic off Bricket Road and is the preferred bidder for this site.

Wild Lights at Whipsnade Zoo

Wild Lights at Whipsnade Zoo

Whether it's for a date-with-a-difference, or a fun family treat, those looking for a really special way to experience some winter magic should head to ZSL Whipsnade Zoo's brand new event, Wild Lights. 

For two weekends in December, visitors will be allowed access to the hilltop Zoo after normal opening hours, where they can wrap up warm and dive into the darkness to discover the wonder of the Zoo's dazzling, winter light trail. Giant animal lanterns, towering flowers and twinkling fairy lights will illuminate a path around the Zoo grounds that will guide guests through a magical journey of winter delights.

Guests will head along the shimmering glitter ball path, past the glowing fire garden towards the enchanting tree lit avenue, looking out along the way for shining stilt-walkers and colourful characters.


Herts Health Walks - Ambassadors Needed

Herts Health Walks - Ambassadors Needed

Hertfordshire County Council's Countryside Management Service has created a brand new Ambassador role and is on the hunt for passionate local walkers to help with the smooth running of the Hertfordshire Health Walks programme.

For the first time, a new network of Ambassadors across the county will be created to support the programme with awareness-raising around the many health and well-being benefits of walking in a group. Some residents may already participate in the organised walks and want to volunteer, but have been waiting for the right position to come up. This is the role for you.

An Ambassador will attend and promote the walks at health and wellbeing awareness events, provide talks to community groups and organisations who are potential walkers and actively seek out opportunities for promotion and building partnerships within the local community. They will also get the chance to use social media to promote the Health Walks locally, engaging with local
