Residents have made Welwyn Hatfield MP Grant Shapps aware of an increase in anti-social behaviour in Welham Green.

The new outdoor table tennis equipment installed by North Mymms Parish Council has been vandalised more than once, and the trees planted to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee have also been damaged. 

Mr Shapps said of the concerns:

“I’m working to address this and ensure that both Welwyn Hatfield Council and Herts Constabulary are doing everything they should in order to prevent these issues”.

Grant has arranged to meet with Herts Constabulary to ensure they are fully aware of what’s going on and to discuss how they can increase their presence in the village.

Parish Councillor Teresa Travell is also monitoring the situation and pressing the police to increase their presence in Welham Green.
