A new village warden for the village of Kings Langley has been announced by the parish council, long-time resident, Simon Walmsley.
Having lived in the village for nearly forty years, Simon is a familiar face to many, with him having begun his work as the warden immediately as of Tuesday, January 2.
Speaking about his appointment, Simon said: “The opportunity to feel that I am helping to keep our village looking as well maintained and as appealing as possible, would give me a real sense of satisfaction.”
The warden of Kings Langley is a unique role appointed by Kings Langley Parish Council themselves, with them helping to make the village a special place to live, work and visit.
Simon’s primary role will be to carry out a number of services to ensure the upkeep of the village and providing a clean, safe and well-presented environment, which includes caring for the village garden, planting, maintaining public shrubs and flower beds, and litter-picking.
KLPC said: “Before starting his role, Simon kindly volunteered to help with the Christmas Lights Event, which many of you will remember was a very cold day. Please say hello to him if you see him around the village!”
