Most Hertbeats activities are still closed due to COVID but some, such as the Walking Group, have resumed.
When activities do resume the group members will all be advised by the usual method.
Additional information on ‘Activities’ can be found by choosing the Activities menu and then selecting the appropriate activity. A new Activity, the Book Club, is featured in this section too.

All voluntary organisations inevitably rely on volunteers to make them work. If you feel you would like to help please contact the Secretary.
When the evening exercise classes resume it is planned to use a new venue, Greenwood Park Community Centre at Chiswell Green, St Albans. This will replace the classes previously held at Maple in St Albans Hospital.
