Welcome to the Mudlarks website. Mudlarks is a Hertford based charity supporting adults with learning disabilities and mental health issues.
In our website you will find lots of information about what we do, details of all our events, as well as tips and advice for growing vegetables and plants.
We hope that you enjoy looking through our site, and that you will come and meet us at the allotments or in our cafe.

In Memory of Chris Sycamore

A friend of ours has sadly passed away. He used to help with our inclusive football team, and so his family have decided that the collection at the funeral will be for Epilepsy UK and the Hertford Inclusive Football Team.

People who wish to support the football may donate via our Donate Now button. We will then transfer the money to the football club.

Chris Sycamore

Hertford Town FC and Mudlarks started a partnership to get adults with learning disabilities and mental health issues working in a team at the football club to improve the pitch in a safe nurturing environment.  The next step was to start an inclusive football team so that the guys could actually play on the pitch that they so lovingly maintained and improved.  This has been running for exactly a year with training every Saturday morning and 6 tournaments participated in.  Chris loved helping out with the training and always focussed on the 3 guys who needed the most support.  Our sessions are for people of mixed abilities to help each other as a team with no-one being judged or feeling excluded.  Chris loved the environment we had created together and the harmony it brings to our Saturday mornings.  Mudlarks Inclusive football is free to all players and sustained by volunteers and donations.

Thank you on behalf of Chris’s family.
