Goodbye to Scott House


It is with regret that we will be saying goodbye to Scott House in the New Year.  Our lovely landlord who has kindly let us stay here rent free for so long has decided to sell/develop Scott House.  We have had some lovely times here and will miss Scott House.

We are now on the look out for a Hertford property that we can use as offices, so if you know of anywhere please get in touch, we have a small budget but will consider anything.

Thank You Ben

Huge congratulations and thanks to Ben who raised over £50 for Mudlarks with his coffee morning.


Christmas Tree Sale and Wreath Making Day


Our Christmas tree sale and wreath making was an absolutely superb day. We completely sold out of trees and people came and made the most beautiful wreathes.

Thank you to everyone who came and joined in with the christmas festivities!
