The Bishop’s Stortford Flyer April 2023

Welcome to your April issue of The Bishops Stortford Flyer.

Inside The Bishops Stortford Flyer April edition. And this month we bring you as much practical information and community news. Welcome to our April issue of the Flyer. We hope you’ll enjoy catching up on the community news and information we have prepared for you inside.

The Bishops Stortford Flyer April edition – Welcome

As we’re now officially in British Summer Time we can look forward to much more daylight. In fact we won’t get a sunset any earlier than 6pm until well into October; a nice thought! With a spring in our step we welcome you to this April issue of the Flyer and the community resources, information and events that are inside.

Maybe you’d like to get out walking or cycling more? The RSPB Stort Valley Group has several wildlife walks and trips (24th April; 30th April); Cycle Stortford shares information on cycle routes and campaigning and Herts Health Walks (which includes Bishop’s Stortford walks) invites us to consider volunteering and joining some of their friendly guided free walks (I can vouch for the walks!) There’s also a great choice of self-guided walking routes on the Hundred Parishes Society website.

 Easter Holidays Bishops Stortford April

With Easter school holidays and the new season upon us we have a number of events. Daisy May’s Farm in Elsenham is open daily over the school holidays and you can cuddle the babies (lambs, kid goats, chicks, ducklings), feed the animals and more. There are opening weekends at Havers Park Bowls Club (21st – 22nd April) and Bishop’s Stortford Bowling Club (8-9th April).  Plus it is well worth visiting the Bishop’s Stortford Tourist Information Centre, where you’ll find so much free info on things to do, and the Bishop’s Stortford library is running several events during April (including author events).

On Saturday 6th May there’s a celebration for the King’s Coronation on Sworder’s Field, organised by the Town Council – food, face painting, Punch and Judy shows and more. Then on Sunday 28th May the Wellbeing Triathlon will take place at Castle Park (walk / run then yoga and then meditation) organised by the Friends of Castle Park. This event will support Herts Mind Network. You’ll also find even more events inside your magazine; don’t miss out!

Charity updates include Hummingbird Cancer Support’s Wellbeing Event (23rd April, 10am and 4pm, South Mill Arts) for all. You can book in for some of the treatments they offer at the group, such as Reiki, Reflexology and Massage and there will be workshops, exercise classes and some shopping. We also discover that the recent Jigsaw Festival at the Bishop’s Stortford Methodist Church raised £2,400.00 to share between the church and Isabel Hospice. Over 250 people attended and the event will be back next February!

Bishop’s Stortford Running Club

The Bishop’s Stortford Running Club has celebrated its 40th birthday, with former and current members gathering at the clubhouse and 39 Bishop’s Stortford Swimming Club members, aged between 11 and 28, qualified for the Swim England Hertfordshire County Championships.  They won many medals and came fourth overall in the Hertfordshire club rankings.  What incredible achievements! All the details about these two clubs, as well as other groups and clubs, are in this issue (new members welcome to get in touch).

In school and education news we have poetry, performances of Matilda, World Book Day, environmental and entrepreneurial updates, including Kidzfair in Jackson Square (10th June) which will showcase the work of entrepreneurs aged 7 to 17.

Enjoy catching up on these articles and more. Thank you for your support.

With best wishes
