The History of Knebworth Village

In September WI Member, Ann Judge, gave us a fascinating talk on the history of the proposed Knebworth garden village development in the early 20th century. She showed us old photos of the village when the High Street was just a lane with horses and carts and we also heard oral history tapes of long standing local residents reminiscing on their life in the village over 70 year ago.

We said a fond farewell to Carole Woodman who has been a Knebworth WI member since 1990.  She has been our President and for many years our Treasurer and has worked tirelessly on committee. Carole and David are moving to Cornwall and we wish them every happiness in their new home.  They will be very much missed by Knebworth WI and indeed by the whole village.
