Maxwell Park in Borehamwood. Borehamwood (sometimes referred to as Boreham Wood) is a town in southern Hertfordshire, situated 16 miles (26 km) north of London.

Religious figures from Aldenham, Watford and Northwood will come together next Sunday to help clean up Hertfordshire.


Devotees of the Bhaktivedanta Hare Krishna Manor and the Watford Interfaith Association, together with members of Northwood and Pinner Liberal Synagogue (NPLS), will tidy up Maxwell Park in Borehamwood on Sunday, November 15.


A total of 15,000 people of Jewish and other faiths across Britain and the rest of the world are aiming to do good deeds to mark “Mitzvah Day”, the national Jewish day of volunteering.


Rabbi Hillel Athias-Robles, NPLS’s Mitzvah Day Project organiser, said: “Mitzvah Day is about giving, not cash, but time.


"Just a couple of hours of our time can make a huge difference to help those less fortunate that ourselves.”


Mitzvah Day projects are open to anyone, Jewish or non-Jewish. For more information go to www.mitzvahday.org.uk or telephone 01923 269100.
