Hi, I’m looking for information on publicans for what used to be The Saracens Head 19 The High Street Redbourn. On a relatives birth certificate it shows George Wicks was a ‘licensed Victualler’ there in 1893.
Can anyone please advise of how I can get this confirmed, and for how long he was there for?
Many thanks for your time.

Hi – I was looking at the photos of the old church hall in Church End. This was the home of Church End playgroup in the late sixties and seventies. My mum (Betty Coles) ran the play group for many years after about 1975 ish until she got ill and died in 1982. We lived at 36 Church End and I went to the play group before going to infants school. My mum ran the group in the later stages with Hilary Miroy who also lived in Church End . I’m unsure when it closed though – I know Hilary continued to run it, at least for a while, after mum died.
On a side note I’m starting a One Place Study of Church End and would be happy to collaborate/share any work.

Andrew – I grew up in the shop in Church End. Any help I can give? I do have various family photos etc and some memories of the people that lived nearby. Good luck with your project. John

I have not lived in Redbourn since 1972, when I left at the age of 16. But there are errors in dates to do with the schools. The old boys school was still in use until 1967, but I attended this school in 1963, before moving to the junior school in Long Cutt in 1964, and onto the secondry-modern in 1967. I left Redbourn in 1972 for career in horticulture/agriculture in Norfolk. Still there.

As you may be aware St Georges are consulting on changing their admissions criteria to no longer allocating 20% of available places to the villages. Read More
