Break in at North Mymms Youth & Community Centre

We are sorry to confirm that the Centre was broken into Tuesday 20th Sept. night. Some items belonging to the Willowbrook Nursery were stolen, but as is so often, the offenders made a huge mess of the office area & elsewhere in the Centre in a futile search for further items to presumably take and sell. Whoever were responsible caused a lot of upset and extra work to the volunteers who run the Centre. They also broke into the store used by the North Mymms Horticultural Society. A garage that clearly says it stores trestles and tables. And what did they find – trestles and tables! So a waste of time for them but again costly to the Society and its members to replace locks and tidy up the mess. If anyone who reads this has any information or saw anything suspicious, please contact the Police on 101. Our local PCSO Sam Griffin would love to hear from you. This also upset a lot of innocent pre-school children. Anyone who does this deserves to be caught. The Centre is a charity, making this crime even more upsetting. Please keep your ears and eyes open. Thanks.

Welcome to the web site of Welham Green,

a village in the Parish of North Mymms, we nestle with our sister village, Brookmans Park between Hatfield to the North & Potters Bar to the South, a train from Welham Green train station gets you to the heart of the city in less than 40 minutes and we have easy access to the M25, A1M & M1 motorways, we have a full parade of 15 shops, local school, 2 under 5 Nurseries, 2 churches and lots going on and still we are very much in the beautiful Hertfordshire Country Side. We have 10 English Heritage listed buildings in Welham Green and about 35 if we include our catchment area, North Mymms gets a mention in the Doomsday Book when it was known as Mimmine held by the Bishop of Chester and we hold claim to the first Hydrogen filled Balloon Landing in England in 1784 by Mr Vincenzo Lunardi who had to land to let out his cat, he found the locals most welcoming and we are confident that you will find us still a welcoming bunch today and as an aside we also are claimed to be the largest industrialised village in Hertfordshire if not England, so good for local employment.The area covered is of around 1500 dwellings with approx. 3500 people and if you vote in our Memorial Hall then you are covered by this site, so included are parts of Bell Bar, Marshmoor, North Mymms Church & Park, parts of Roestock and Water End.
