There is just days to go until the streets of Hemel Hempstead and Berkhamsted will be brought to life by an army of fundraising night walkers.

Revellers will be pounding the pavement for the Hospice of St Francis Midnight Walk on Saturday.

But it’s not too late for others to sign up - you can just turn up on the night and register for the five or 11 mile route.

It starts from Hemel Hempstead School in Heath Lane and follows a route to Berkhamsted and back again.

Registration, which costs £15, starts at 8.45pm and closes at 9.45pm. Payment can be made by cash or cheque and bunny ears will be sold on the night for £3.

There’s lots more about why this event is so important and details about the people the hospice helps in this week’s Gazette and our video reporter Natalee Hazelwood will be capturing the fun on camera.
