A Truly Memorable Visit

Thanks For The Memory

After a few hitches the gathering of memories of the town’s early days is now in full swing. Dennis Lewis, who is leading the project expressed himself well pleased with progress. “We had a few problems with pressing the wrong buttons, but that is all sorted out now happily”, he said.


Partners Bid For Euro Cash

The possibility of some serious cash from the European Union has brought the Welwyn Garden Heritage Trust and the University of Hertfordshire together as partners. Funds up to several million Euros are on offer. Announcing the link-up Tony Skottowe explained that the Trust had been approached late last year to join a group from Paris and Liege to apply for funds. “Aimed at Garden Cities, and how the idea could help town planning now, part of the project is to find ways to reduce energy use in homes. To have any chance of being successful we needed an academic partner”, he said. 


Heritage Trust Goes European

The Welwyn Garden Heritage Trust was recently invited to send a representative to an EU project in Paris based on the importance of Garden Cities throughout the Community. As it turned out Welwyn Garden was the only UK town to turn up out of all those contacted.
