Need something to do on Bank Holiday Monday?
On Monday 7th May the United Reformed Church, Mill Lane, Broxbourne, EN10 7BQ will be holding their May Market from 10.30 to 2.00.
This annual event has taken place every year for over 20 years and is a well-established and firm favourite with the local population, particularly for its warm welcome, its delicious food and the quality of the plants on sale.
A cross between a Church Bazaar and a Craft Fair there is something for everyone. As they approach the entrance and hand over their 50p admission, visitors encounter an extensive outdoor plant stall selling sturdy bedding plants, pretty perennials and decorative hanging baskets and where some unusual plants are always to be found.
Once inside there are clever craft stalls; the randomness that epitomises ‘White Elephant’ bargains; pre-loved books and toys; and some beautiful china and glass. The ladies of the church sell homemade jams, chutneys, cakes and pies, whilst a well-stocked refreshment stall sells teas, coffees and soft drinks, cakes large and small and even scones with jam and cream. And when you weary of hunting down a bargain, why not top up your energy levels by choosing a light and reasonably priced lunch cooked to order from our extensive menu?
Please come and see for yourself. You won’t regret it.
In aid of Young Life International, Hoddesdon and Broxbourne. Entry by donation
3-5.30pm at St Catherine & St Paul’s Church Hall, Paul’s Lane, Hoddesdon EN11 8TR
Delicious homemade cakes & refreshments

Most people in Broxbourne are fortunate enough never to have to experience homelessness, but for those who do it can be a very traumatic experience that is hard to escape from, damaging physical and emotional well-being.
In January 2019, it is hoped that the Broxbourne Winter Night Shelter Scheme for single homeless people can be established. The aim is to have 7 churches hosting guests on one night each of the week. Each church will arrange its own volunteers but can obtain help from non-participating churches.
Are you willing to help and support someone turn their life around? The scheme is in need of volunteers for various shifts, with flexibility. Probably there will be three shifts: evening 6.30 to 9.30/10pm, set up and welcoming; night shift 10-6.30/7am, secure building and settle guests in; morning 6.30 to 9.30/10am, prepare simple breakfast.
There will be free training provided for all volunteers. Please speak to David Bradburn or David Lee.
