Get to Lemsford fete next Bank Holiday

SCORCHING weather has so far been blessing Welwyn Hatfield this week.

Let’s hope it remains fine for next week’s Bank Holiday Monday (May 2) Lemsford Fete, at which this year, you could win a whole host of goodies.

Now in its 61st year, the bazaar, which starts at 1pm, will offer all the traditional types of entertainment, which attendees have come to expect over the years – from Irish dancing and a maypole performance to a brass band.

And this year, the event at St John’s church and school, will also offer the chance for guests to win a Ramblers Holidays voucher worth �200, meal vouchers for Brocket Hall’s Auberge du Lac, Welwyn’s White Hart Hotel and much more, as part of the grand draw.

Alongside the prize winning opportunities, there will also be a chance to harness your archery and bell ringing skills, or indeed to learn more about the variety of crafts on show.
