With over a hundred flagship parks in the county, there is so much more to see in Hertfordshire.
The ParksHerts website provides a single point of access for information about Hertfordshire’s parks and open spaces. The project aims to encourage residents to make more of their valuable local space and visit parks they may not have previously explored, whilst also supporting people to make getting outdoors part of their daily lives by finding places to enjoy and share with others.
ParksHerts users are able to filter parks by a number of categories – including who is going to the park, what activities you would like to do and the facilities offered. You will be encouraged to get active by using the wide range of walking, cycling, running and activity trails that exist across the county.
To find out more, visit the ParksHerts website. You can also like us on Facebook: facebook/ParksHerts, or follow us on twitter: @ParksHerts and Instagram: ParksHerts
Just Talk is back in 2019. Just Talk is a Hertfordshire Public Health campaign to encourage students to talk to a friend, family member or trusted adult if they are experiencing issues with their mental health.
Students can get involved with a film competition again for this campaign. If you would like to share this within your school then below is more about the competition details for the Just Talk film.
The campaign date for 2019 is 4th February to 10th February. Public Health have created a toolkit for schools and colleges for Years five -13: https://www.justtalkherts.org/media/documents/schools-and-colleges-resources-pack-2019.pdf

Take on The Daily Mile
Hertsmere Borough Council are supporting the Herts Sports Partnership to help every school have access to the daily mile. So what is the daily mile? it’s free, it does not need setting up or packing away and no training is required. All children run or walk for 15 minutes every day in their uniform, so no changing is needed. It’s social and fun, improves fitness and the children return to class ready to learn.
To find out more about the benefits to your school and how to go about started, please contact Alex Varran: A.firstname.lastname@example.org
