Crowds flock to RSPCA fun day
MORE than 3,000 people descended on South Mimms on Sunday for the annual RSPCA Southridge Fun Day.
Under bright blue skies, visitors and their dogs mingled and enjoyed a range of activities on offer, including geese herding, agility and obedience demonstrations.
As the mercury soared, the beer tent, Pimm’s stall and refreshment stands did a roaring trade, while Welwyn Hatfield Times staff members were also on hand, giving out free copies of our Potters Bar Edition and balloons.
Visitors were also able to view the dozens of cats and dogs that call the Packhorse Lane centre their home until new owners can be found.
Hertsmere mayor Linda Silver was guest of honour at the event, now in its fourth year.

“I would like to thank everybody in Potters Bar and the surrounding area for giving us their support.”
He added: “It takes months to organise but it is well worth it.”
