Between 12pm and 3pm, stalls, arts and crafts activities and even a speaker from Greenpeace both entertained and informed visitors on how they can do their bit to help.

Simone Russell, corporate director at Welwyn Hatfield Council, said: “It was great to see so many residents passionate about helping to save our planet.

“I hope that everyone who attended Environment Day went away with some new tips and knowledge on how they can live more sustainably.

“The Creative Lab's arts and crafts station was a huge hit with children who all made pledges to help protect the planet.
