A public meeting will be held next week to discuss proposals for a new free school in central Watford.

St John’s Church, in Sutton Road, is launching a bid to build a Church of England primary school in Watford.

Residents are invited to attend a meeting in St John’s Church on Thursday at 7.30pm to hear about the plans and ways to get involved.

Watford’s MP Richard Harrington and the town’s elected mayor, Dorothy Thornhill, will be at the meeting.
