The PM was the special guest at Bhaktivedanta Manor in Letchmore Heath which has planning permission to build the new two-storey building known as a Haveli.

Hertsmere MP Oliver Dowden said: “It was an absolute pleasure to welcome him to Hertsmere for the first time as Prime Minister. He spent more than an hour with us, meeting local leaders but most importantly performing the ground breaking for Bhaktivedanta Manor’s Haveli.

“The construction of the Haveli marks the final phase of the Manor’s master plan and coincides with ISKCON’s [The International Society for Krishna Consciousness] 50th anniversary. Over the years the Hare Krishna temple has become central to the Hindu and our wider community.

“I was so pleased to be able to persuade the Prime Minister to come to this historic event.”

Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
