“The finances of Hertford Town Council remain on a sound and stable footing. It’s therefore very pleasing that we are able to maintain our programme of grants to local good causes. So much good and valuable work in the community is done by volunteers who give their time freely to help others and it’s great that we can recognise this and provide some level of financial assistance. We hope this latest round of grants will make a difference.”
