A lovely and touching thanksgiving of the life and times of David Wynne-Jones was held today in All Saints Church, Croxley Green. Hundreds of friends and those who knew him were recounted with plenty of reminiscenes. He will be missed but celebrated by his wit, his convivial company, his passion for words, not least of all, his passion for Croxley Green.
This week we have been flying our flag at half-mast in memory of Cllr David Wynne-Jones whom sadly passed away last weekend whilst holidaying in France.
Cllr Wynne-Jones was a long-standing & dedicated member of Croxley Green Parish Council having first joined in 1998. David was a keen environmentalist having served as Chairman of the Environment & Amenity committee and represented Croxley Green Parish Council at the Environmental Forum at Three Rivers.
David was the instigator of the newly formed Croxley Green Bird-Box Trail and could always be found supporting Parish Council events in the community.
Cllr Wynne-Jones was Croxley Green through and through having lived in the village for more than 60 years and was well known by many in our community.
He shall be remembered and sadly missed.

From 10 July New Road is scheduled to be resurfaced. The work is scheduled to last 5 days. The whole of the road will be closed from Watford Road to The Green. Croxley Green Parish Council has been concerned for some time about the condition of New Road and the potential of incidents with vehicles and cyclists having to take last moment manouvres to avoid potholes and the general degragration of the road surface. Following a Planning and Development Committee (P&D) meeting last week addressing a road safety issue, the matter was taken up with Hertfordhsire County Council (HCC) and they have advised of the resurfacing date. A 'temporary' road closure order was issued and published by HCC a liitle while back, along with other potential road closures within the TRDC district, but with an '18 month window' of their impending works. The Parish Council's P&D Committe considered that something needed to be done now. HCC also advised that an inspection of the road will be undertaken to address any imminent potential hazard to users of the road.
As the road will be closed from 10 July for 5 days, access for residents only, users of New Road should seek alternative routes. And if you are a commuter and think you can park on street on the cheap, think again as your car may be taken away!!!!!!
