The Street Market and Family Fun Day are saved!


The 41st consecutive annual Welwyn Festival will be held from 19th to 28th June 2015

Street Market and Family Fun Day

We are pleased to say that our two cornerstone events are saved!

Three new volunteers have come forward to run them, and we are very grateful to Wen Evans and Judy Tucker for co-ordinating the Street Market and Mark Caudle for taking on the Family Fun Day. What a relief!


In other news... Instead of a proposed sports event being held at Digswell Playing Fields, a multi sports event will run at Singlers Marsh on the last Sunday, 28th June, immediately after the 10km run and 2km kids' fun run. We are in active discussions with the Sports Partnership for Welwyn-Hatfield to stage a 10 sport event in a purpose built arena to be erected on the day. Four coaches will provide tuition in all kinds of sports, and money or equipment will be provided free of charge for participating clubs/groups. Could you benefit? Get in touch if you are interested, my details are below.

The 10k run and 2k kids' fun run, which were held for the first time last year with over 400 runners, will be starting and finishing at Singler's Marsh, with the main run going along the High Street/London Road, up to the Ayots, and back along the Kimpton Road, the kids will run around the four fields on the Marsh.
