New Welwyn road named after former head
A NEW Welwyn road has been named after one the village’s most influential inhabitants.
Trevena Gardens was unveiled last week as around 50 people attended the opening of the showhome.
The road, which sits off School Lane, will feature seven homes when it is fully complete at the end of April.
It has been named after Kit Trevena, the former St Mary’s Primary School headteacher, who not only spent 20 years at the school, but also helped set up the Welwyn Anglo-French Twinning Association.
Gordon Roughan, MD of WGC-based Netherdown, the developers who built the estate, told the WHT he was delighted with how the project went.

“Everyone was very complimentary, so we’re going to try for an award.
“The architect who designed the homes, Evan Clark, also designed Mimram Place, so we’re really pleased with how everything has gone and how much support we’ve had.”
Paulina Craig at Netherdown added: “Naturally, we are very proud to be naming out latest development of seven houses after the late Mr Kit Trevena as he was not only a former – and very popular – headmaster, but he was also the founder of the Welwyn Anglo-French Twinning Association.”
The Bridge Road East developers announced its first new residents in the road were Mr and Mrs Chambers, who moved in to number six.
During the development, more than 100 Roman artefacts were found - (for more on this story visit www.whtimes24.co.uk at 1.30pm this afternoon - Sunday).
Some are being given to new homeowners, others are being established at Trevena Gardens’ entrance or in the showroom, while others are being sent to Mill Green Museum.
