AS a Knebworth resident, I fully support mum-of-three Juliet Pomerance (above) in her bid to build a secondary school in the village.

I think she is right in saying that the lack of secondary education in Knebworth is enough to stop young families from moving into the village, and enough to cause those already living in Knebworth to move out.

Residents should do all they can to make Knebworth as self-sufficient as possible.

Not so long ago, there was talk in the parish of plans for Chas Lowe's to move out of the high street and to the outskirts of the village, providing the opportunity to expand and enhance village services on the vacant site in a prime location at the centre of Knebworth.

The doctors' surgery has already laid its cards on the table and made known its plans to move to Stevenage if things in the village are not somehow revitalised.

There is a very real danger Knebworth will be swallowed up by Stevenage if radical steps are not taken to preserve its identity now.
