HUNDREDS of people enjoyed balloon modelling, face painting and funfair rides at Hatfield town centre's circus day.

She said: "It was great to see such an enthusiastic crowd; everyone who was there enjoyed the event all day and had a lot of fun.

"Hatfield town centre really benefits from events like this and I hope future events are as well supported as this one."
