Be Safe, Be Seen!

  • Rural Road Safety Campaign highlights benefits of wearing hi-vis clothing.
  • Runners, riders and cyclists urged to put safety ahead of style.
  • Country Lanes high-lighted as a danger area.

As part of their new Rural Road Safety Campaign, police officers in Herts are appealing to those who walk, run or ride on the roads, to always wear high visibility clothing.

“Hi-vis clothes, such as fluorescent or reflective items, should always be worn if you run, ride or walk on the roads, but at this time of year they are essential,” said Chief Inspector Jon Roche. “As the winter days get shorter and generally gloomier, it is harder for motorists to see pedestrians, cyclists or riders, particularly on narrow lanes where a person can just blend in with the hedging if they are wearing dark clothes. Quite often they are almost invisible until you get right up behind them."

“By wearing high visibility clothing you are giving motorists more chance to react, slow down and pass you safely. If you are not keen to wear hi-vis colours, then at least wear a hi-vis backpack or have something fluorescent or reflective on your person that will help you to be seen. Horse riders should ideally wear hi-vis clothing and have some hi-vis accessory on their horse, in case the two become separated.

“It is easy to think that just because YOU have good visibility at the time, that the same will be true for car drivers, but the clarity from inside a car is very different. Please put safety over style when you head out on the roads.”

Sarratt Parish Council

Vacancy for the position of Councillor


Sarratt Parish Council has two vacancies for the position of Councillor.

Sarratt Parish Council is made up of nine Councillors, all of whom are volunteers, and supported by a Parish Clerk.

We are a non-political Council and work together to best serve the interests of the Parish and its residents. Council meetings are held once a month on the evening of the second Tuesday in the month. Councillors are required to attend the monthly meetings and work on other ad hoc duties between meetings as required, but generally the time commitment is not significant.

Our remit covers:

  • The maintenance of the Parish commons, woodlands, footpaths and bridleways
  • Planning matters affecting the Parish
  • Management of the Parish Council budget and its policies
  • Working with Herts County Council on highway issues
  • A wide variety of other matters that come from being an integral part of the local community.

We are looking for anyone keen to support the many things our community loves about Sarratt, as well as supporting the future development of the Parish in a way which protects what residents and visitors to the area treasure, whilst enabling it to continue to grow and thrive. At the current time we are particularly keen to hear from anyone who would enjoy supporting the Council on matters associated with managing our Environment agenda.

Applicants do not need any particular skills or prior experience of working on or with a local Council. However, a willingness to support the local community is required and short introductory courses on the role of a Councillor are available to new Councillors.

If you are interested in supporting your community in this way and wish to be considered for the position of Councillor, please contact the Parish Office for an Application Form using the details below.
