Vox Pop: What facilities would you like to see coming to Dacorum?


Video reporter Natalee Hazelwood asked staff and volunteers at the DENS Dacorum Foodbank what facilities or amenities they would like to see in Dacorum.

Sharon Boyall, DENS Foodbank manager:

‘I have really struggled to find nice restaurants or even pubs to take the children out for dinner, so more family-friendly menus would be good.’

Doreen Coburn, Adeyfield:

‘I have lived in Hemel almost all my life, it’s a lovely town but I really would like a Pavilion so we could get some decent shows and maybe bands.’

Diana Warner, Berkhamsted:

‘I would like to see improved sports facilities – everyone is obviously getting wider and wider, so it would be good to have plenty of sports facilities.’

Patrick Ellerby, Bennetts End:

‘I would like to see a new hospital or larger facilities for the hospital in Hemel Hempstead. They’re not as good since the hospital has gone, we need a new one but I don’t think we’ll get that.’

Mark Taylor, Dagnall:

‘I’d like to see some more facilities for teenagers in Hemel, to give them more activities to do in the evenings and weekends. Perhaps a bowling alley or some more cycle paths.’
