A Village Ignored

Tinted postcard c1900 Walsworth

Despite having its own Common, Church, shops. pubs, refurbished playpark, primary schools, and Community Centre, Walsworth has always been the neglected village in Hitchin.

The Walsworth Festival, the only free festival in Hertfordshire, is run by Walsworth volunteers. Others, regularly clean the river and Common, keeping it a green space that can be enjoyed by the whole community,

Why, then, is a housing estate on the other side of the town, benefiting from a £7 million boost to its community facilities, when the village of Walsworth is denied £160,000 to maintain its Community Centre?
