The Herts Valleys Hospital group, who are calling for a new hospital central to west Herts, will be at the market on Sunday, December 15 and Sunday, December 22 offering mince pies and information about their proposals.

While NHS bosses currently plan to use their allocated budget to renovate existing services at Watford General, St Albans City and Hemel Hempstead hospitals, Herts Valleys Hospitals are seeking support from people, politicians and planners for a '21st century' A&E hospital service in the 'Golden Triangle' area of Bricket Wood.

Campaigner Steve Day said: "There is currently a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to not only build a new hospital but to retain local hospital services."

The group also met with party-goers at the Old School Disco at the Alban Arena in November to garner support.
