Hertfordshire County Council warns residents to be vigilant against rogue traders

On average, almost 250 reports of rogue trading are made each year in Hertfordshire, but it is estimated that only between five and 20 per cent of these crimes are reported – that’s why Hertfordshire County Council’s Trading Standards team is advising residents to follow a few top tips:

  1. Say no to doorstep callers. Do not buy goods or services at the door.
  2. If you are considering having work done, always shop around first and get at least three quotes.
  3. You can search for a Hertfordshire Trading Standards Approved Trader on the Which? Trusted Traders website or by calling Trading Standards.
  4. Honest businesses agree pricing beforehand, including VAT. There’s no evidence without a written contract.
  5. Avoid paying cash in hand. It’s better to pay by bank transfer or cheque, as these can be traced.
  6. If you think you or a vulnerable relative or neighbour has become the victim of a rogue trader, report it straight away.



This month Mike Beech gave a fascinating talk on China: From Confucius to the 21st Century. We learned about all aspects of Chinese life including geography, history, language, culture and fashion. Did you know that the largest city in China is in fact Chongqing with a population of 32 million? There are 40k characters in the language and most people only learn about five thousand of them. The Chinese invented ice cream, the compass, paper, gunpowder, printing and toilet paper!

Accompanying the talk was a number of interesting pictures and slides - everything from the workers in the paddy fields to the enchanting splendour of the Forbidden City. We even learned that you could buy your very own life sized terracotta solider! It was a thoroughly informative and entertaining evening.

The competition was to bring a holiday photo. The winner was Cheryl Newnham with her photo of the Cartier Building in New York. Second was Susanna Hendy with a photo of the rooftops of Rome and the dome of St Peter’s. Third was Nona Clarke with a photo of the Tokyo skyline at night. The flower of the month was a beautiful rose brought in by Sue Payne.

Next month we will be hearing all about the History of Pantomime from Leanne Walters. Hope to see you there.

Shenley and District Horticultural Society

Society members have in the past also enjoy organised trips, an annual weekend away, talks throughout the year on many interesting subjects, slide shows of gardens and social events that in the past have included barbeques and quiz nights.
The society has a trading shed open once a week on Sunday morning at the Shenley allotments in Green Street, allowing its members to purchase gardening and horticultural supplies at reasonable prices.
So if you are interested in gardening, showing or any of the their activities mentioned, we offer a great welcome to new members, come along to the shed on any Sunday between 9:30 -11:00 and meet some of the team and even perhaps become a member.Click here to download membership form
