Shenley & District Horticultural Society
The Shenley & District Horticultural Society will be holding their Annual Show on Saturday 10th September 2016 in the Village Hall at 2.30pm.

Non-members or their children, would like to enter something into the show please feel free to pick up the Show Schedule.

1st Shenley Cubs

This year, 2016, marks the 100th Anniversary of the Cub section so is a very special year for us. To celebrate, 1st Shenley will be taking part in a County Camp in July where there will be an opportunity to meet Cubs from all over Hertfordshire and try lots of new activities. We will also be taking part in a District Party on the 18th December to mark the occasion.

Shenley First Beavers

Beavers is the first stage of Scouting starting at age 6 and leading onto Cubs at the age of 8. We follow similar activities to Cubs, have lots of fun and the children get a chance to make new friends.


At our March meeting we learnt about the Apsley Paper Trail from a very interesting speaker, Peter Burford. Apsley is an area of Hemel Hempstead and the paper mill, which is a charitable trust, gives talks and demonstrations to schools, U3A, WIs and businesses, as well as being a working mill.

Christmas 2015 at the Cage

At 11.0am on Sunday morning Santa, riding on a horse drawn carriage driven by Mo Keegan, dressed as an Elf, came calling. Steve Bury did a great job as Santa and he discovered how difficult it is to keep your balance but he managed to hold on to the carriage for the entire journey round the Village. They were followed around the village by William Susman and Steve’s wife Shirley playing Christmas music from their car. The carriage journey finished up at the Orchard Tea Rooms with Santa distributing sweets to the children there, after which Santa walked home to New Road in costume getting a lot of attention from passing pedestrians and motorists!


Shenley Park Trust

We have an exciting programme of events this year in the Park; we hope you will be able to join us. The amazing Pantaloons return with two plays in July, Gullivers Travels promises to be great for adults and children alike with Canterbury Tales appealing most likely to adults. For the first time we are to host A Company of Ten who are based in Abbey Theatre St.Albans, they are to bring their May production of Twelfth Night into the Walled Garden Amphitheatre at the beginning of June with both matinee and evening performances. The ever popular Music to Watch the Flowers By will return on Sunday 31st July, we would be interested to hear from some face painters for this event. In September for the first time we are going to hold a Folk Festival in the Walled Garden, we already have some local artists and potentially a dance group – if anyone is interested in performing or you know of someone please get in touch.

SCAG outing to MIss Saigon

On Wednesday 17th December 90 senior Shenley citizens set off on two coaches from Andrew Close in Shenley to see the amazing musical 'Miss Saigon'. The trip was organised by our superb Parish Council Clerk Amanda so the whole itinerary was of her making. On the day Councillor William Susman and his wife Natalie led one coach, whilst Councillor Nicky Beaton assisted by quiz master and photographer husband Guy and me (Ross) helped out on the second coach.

To get to the theatre it two hours, one of which was stuck in traffic a mile from the venue!! Never mind - our hardy coach team were busy eating pastries and were all very cheerful.

T and Chat for the over 50s

T and Chat has been running for the past 2 years we meet at Shenley Village Hall every month from March to December 2pm - 4pm. We provide home made cakes and a tea and coffee. All over 50s are welcome, there is no set charge  but donations are always welcome.  All proceeds are returned to the Village Hall as this is provided for us free of charge.  We have managed to purchase a new tub for the garden and we plant the tubs twice a year we have also purchased two new teapots and an urn for the Village Hall use with our donations. Our next get together will be on Tuesday 8th March


Village Walks

We meet on the first Sunday of the month at 11:15 in the morning outside the White Horse pub. We do a circular walk, ending up back at the White Horse 1½ to 2 hours later. We did once catch the bus to Aldenham Church and then walk back to Shenley from there via Letchmore Heath, a beautiful walk especially in the summer.
