Welwyn’s spirit of the community put forward for WHT Community Awards

A Welwyn man who aims to bring the village together has been nominated in the Welwyn Hatfield Times Community Awards 2019.

Stuart Carnegie, who helps runs the Welwyn Village News Facebook page, was put forward in the Service to the Community category by Caroline Reed for his tireless efforts to support his community.

"Stuart goes above and beyond in the village," Caroline said.

"He has been running litter collection events, organised a street party in the village for Harry and Megan's wedding, put up Welwyn's Christmas lights and even dressed as Father Christmas one year.

"There are probably more he does in the community that I have missed off!"

Stuart says he does "these things to get a warm fuzzy feeling out of seeing joy from others".

He added: "My father did a lot for the community and it is nice to try and emulate him."
