Shopping and Eating Out



Jan. New Restaurant to open on the High Street in Spring.

The owners  currently working on the design concept.

The style of food still to be revealed. Unlikely to be a Thai as that is already next door.



Majestic Wine could be opening in Harpenden following their planning application for the old Santander bank.

Following after  2 years since its closure and with no retailer taking an option to open up it will be good news to see this prime site back in action.

We await a decision from St Albans planning officers.

Approximately 12% of people in

the UK have been the victims of

payments fraud in the last four

years, according to a new report

by ACI Worldwide.

The research reveals that 

online fraud and digital

wallet hacks now account

for 19.8% of UK fraud cases.

In addition, the number of

consumers falling victim to

confidence tricks has increased to 12.8% of all fraud cases.

New methods of fraud such as digital account hacking, identity theft and social engineering have also reached pandemic levels in the UK.

According to UK Finance, UK fraud victims lost £1.3 billion in 2021 alone amid a surge in online fraud, with a near 40% rise in authorised push payment (APP) scams.

“As more consumers rely on digital and real-time payments, fraudsters are increasingly targeting the online space to steal sensitive information and top up any missing pieces by impersonating well known organisations such as banks or government bodies,” ACI Worldwide director, fraud product management Jackie Barwell said.

“A radical rethink of fraud fighting strategies and industry wide collaboration is required to bring the situation under control. It is an issue that banks cannot solve on their own any longer.

“Financial service providers, social media giants, telco companies and enforcement agencies all need to work together to stop fraudsters in their tracks before the fraudulent transactions take place.
