Hatfield town centre's arcade canopy lights were turned pink to mark Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Hatfield is the latest town to join in with supporting Breast Cancer Awareness month, a worldwide annual campaign that highlights the importance of breast cancer awareness, research and education.
The new arcade canopy forms part of the Hatfield Town Centre redevelopment programme, which has also seen shop and flat renovations in White Lion Square, the refurbishment of White Lion House and the addition of four new national retailers.
Hatfield Mayor, Councillor Linda Mendez, turned the lights pink on October 1.
She said: “I am delighted that Hatfield Town Centre is able to support Breast Cancer Awareness month, turning the lights pink is a touching way to raise awareness amongst residents in the borough.”
Councillor Roger Trigg, executive member for corporate property at Welwyn Hatfield Council, said: “It’s such a simple thing to do, yet it delivers a very powerful message and gets people talking to one another.
“It is for a fantastic cause and I am delighted to welcome such an amazing endeavour to the town.”
Lynn Stevens, pictured with the mayor, is the owner of Bliss Beauty Therapy in the Arcade, and will be fundraising for breast cancer charities during October.
