We are blessed with two charities that are able to help people, one was founded in the 1400’s and whilst it doesn’t give out bread any more it helps a number of deserving local people, the other founded from the sale of land given by the Burns family of North Mymms Park helps local people in other ways, full details can be found on our new charities page.

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.
