Do you have something to say or ask about your area?
Maybe there’s an issue that concerns or frustrates you, or something you enjoy locally that you’d like to talk about?
We have teamed up with streetlife.com to provide our readers with a simple place to voice opinions and share practical information and advice with people living nearby.
The local social network is a new addition to our websites that connects you with your neighbours so you can swap recommendations, alert people to important news, discuss the things you love about Hertfordshire, and have a little grumble about those you don’t.
