The scheme will run between Monday, August 20 and the following Friday, from 10am to 3pm each day, in the ground floor unit between JD Sports and Pandora in The Howard Centre.

Residents will be asked for their views on community safety in the borough, on Tuesday there will be a free bike-marking event, and Wednesday’s theme will be youth.

There will then be a focus on scams and fraud, including information on the latest ones to watch out for.

Each day fun children’s activities will be taking place, including a dressing up box, The Creation Station, and free face painting on Friday.

Councillor Bernard Sarson said: “Our Community Safety Week events focus on helping our residents to feel safer, and this year over 20 different organisations will be on hand to offer help and advice.”

The event is organised by the Welwyn Hatfield Community Safety Partnership.
