Today I hosted the first meeting of 'Dean's Green Team', my new initiative to enable young people in #Watford to discuss with me their important environmental concerns & potential solutions to address these. I would like to thank all of the students who attended, and I look forward to discussing these issues and solutions further with them at our next meeting. #Environment ♻

Hello, I am hoping someone might be able to help me. I am trying to reunite my father (Godfrey Johnson) With his childhood best friend. His name is David Stiggers and went to Watford Grammer school in the 1950s.

If anyone has any information on how I could find him please DM.

Yr10s/Y8s are having an incredible day with the 95th Rifle Volunteers.

They have so far experienced the life of a volunteer soldier including drilling and skirmishes. How a soldier lived on its stomach and the food on offer and how rudimentary surgery and medical care took place on the battlefield. They also saw the a rifle volley similar to the experience at the Battle of Waterloo. A great deal of thanks goes out to all the reenactors from the 95th Rifle Volunteers including youngest recruit Ellie and Field Marshal Barnes for creating this amazing opportunity for Year 10 Historians and Yr8s.
