Splash Parks open in North Herts!

The splash park at Fairlands Valley is every weekend now until opening fully for the summer at May half term. If you’ve not been before, there’s also a great playground, lots of space to run, play and picnic as well as a kiosk for ice cream and drinks next to the splash park.

The splash parks across North Herts including Hitchin, Letchworth, Baldock and Royston are now open for the season too. For info on all our local splash parks visit my guide here.

Beautiful Bluebells


From now until mid May, our local woods are filled with carpet of stunning blue blooms. Find out where you can see bluebells near you in my guide. Tread carefully and don’t forget your camera!
