A literature group for young people is to be pioneered by the Dacourm Heritage Trust and Hemel Hempstead Library.

Funded by the Clore Literature and Poetry Award, plans are being set in motion to create a Heritage Writing Group to encourage creative writing and reading and an interest in local history.

Depending on the outcome of a funding bid, it is hoped the project will last for 12 weeks from February next year and will include visits to Dacorum sites where storytellers will bring to life local stories.
