Hatfield House hosted an event for more than 500 charity volunteers that help the older generation.

The Age UK Herts Volunteer Recognition event took place earlier this week at the stately home to show appreciation for the volunteers’ efforts supporting more than 3.500 older people county-wide each week.

Lord and Lady Salisbury offered The Old Palace free of charge, and visitors enjoyed a buffet lunch while singing along to a lively performance from the Welwyn Hatfield Rock Choir.

Hatfield House guide Eric McLaughlin then gave a “fascinating” talk on his life working in the royal household, pointing out various historic features.

The day was rounded off with a performance from The Herts of Love Choir, as well as a free raffle.
