I have lived in Watford all my life, most of which on the Holywell Estate. I am passionate about where I live and the people within it, particularly the older community. When I was very young I remember befriending a local man who was on his own and he became very much part of our family.
Being part of the local residents’ group helps to keep me abreast of what’s happening in my local area. I’m a very sociable person who loves to meet up with friends old and new and I’m always keen to be involved in organising events and functions.
It’s important to say hello to our neighbours, you never know when you might need a friend to call on.
I live in Abbots and something I really love is walking my dog in the fantastic parks around the area and meeting up with friends for coffee and cake in one of the lovely cafes. We are so lucky in Watford and Three Rivers to have such friendly communities with lots of events and activities for all ages but I know there are some older people who may need some encouragement and support to be able to join in. I hope you feel inspired to join Neighbours Together where you live and help your older neighbours to stay active and well.
Project Information Officer
I’m Tracy and I’m the person behind the What’s on Guide. I grew up and went to school in Watford and now live in Abbots Langley. I have a young family so I enjoy visiting the lovely open spaces that we have in the area and attending many of the local family friendly community events. I have worked for Watford & Three Rivers Trust for 5 years now and really wanted to be part of the new Neighbours Together project as I have seen what a wonderfully positive impact being socially engaged and feeling part of something can have on someone that might otherwise be at home with very little contact with other people day to day.
