Autumn Litter Pick
Saturday 26 Oct 2019 10:00 am – 12:00 noon

The Preston Trust committee would, once again, like to invite you all to come and help pick up litter around the village and parish.

Do, please, come and join us on The Green, on the 26th at 10.00am. Wear appropriate clothing and footwear, and bring your gardening/DIY gloves! HiVis jackets, 'litter-picker' tools, black plastic sacks, and disposable gloves will be provided by NHDC/Urbaser. As usual, we will work in pairs along each lane and footpath, and then bring the filled sacks back to The Green.

Just come along and lend a hand, please. After several years of this regular activity, we know that we do make a difference!

Liz Hunter, PT committee member

Village Day – Thank you all

The Preston Trust Committee would like to thank you all for taking part in Village Day.

Whether, by making a scarecrow (or cow...), dancing at the Maypole, bringing your dog or car for the shows, helping, running a stall for one of the parish organisations / yourself, donating, coming to ‘play’ or a mixture of them all, your participation made it a happy, successful Fun Raising Day for the community. (Fun - with no "d" intentional!)

So many of you kindly gave cakes that there were some left over. It was agreed to donate them (and the surplus burger buns) to the Sanctuary in Hitchin, so they have gone to a good home.

There were of course a few competitions. All of the winners have been informed so we’re sorry but if you haven’t heard from us, it wasn’t you.

The name for the new cow was voted to be Daisy, although to some she will always be Buttercup...

The OSCARecrowS Awards and competition results, will be published shortly …

Preston Parish Neighbourhood Plan

On the advice of NHDC, the Preston Parish Neighbourhood Plan was put on hold last year because of delays to the NHDC Local Plan 2011-2031. As a result of further discussions with NHDC and the publication of the main modifications to the Local Plan, it is now possible to proceed with the Neighbourhood Plan. The Preston Parish Neighbourhood Plan Second Submission has been sent to NHDC and a Formal Public Consultation has been conducted.

The Formal Public Consultation (Regulation 16) is now closed

Further information and copies of the plan, with associated documents, can be found on the North Herts District Council website by following this link

The Neighbourhood Plan and associated documents are also available on the Preston Parish Neighbourhood Plan website:
