The Brookmans Park Newsletter is now a portal, offering an entry point for three new sites where all the history, walks, and archived news features have been updated, enhanced, and extended.


Local history

The history section of the site is now called the North Mymms History Project. It's three times bigger than it was, and is growing all the time. All the articles have been reworked with new information, images and documents having been added. It's now a massive local resource of historical information. Contributions and comments are always welcome.

Local countryside walks

Our walks section has been renamed Hertfordshire Walker. This too has grown. Before we had just 52 local walks. Now we have 74, and we are adding to them all the time. All have directions, maps, and photographs. And all can be downloaded, printed, and use free-of-charge. Again, comments are always welcome.

Local news and discussions

And our local news updates are now on this site, North Mymms News. Here you can suggest stories to be covered, send in text and photographs if you have a local issue you want to air, or simply comment on what has been written.

Other changes


The Brookmans Park Newsletter community forum has closed. The comment and suggestions facility contained on North Mymms News is now the place to raise local concerns.

Adverts


We have removed the Google adverts from the pages and replaced them with promotions for local charities which the Brookmans Park Newsletter is supporting. These will change from time to time. Currently the three charities are:


Train and weather updates


The home page of the Brookmans Park Newsletter still has live updates for local train services and the local weather forecast as well as Twitter feeds from the three sites mentioned above. You might want to follow all three. The feeds are:
