Hertfordshire villages celebrate Royal Wedding
QUAINT Hertfordshire landscape, a glorious spring day, and unsurpassed joviality in celebrating the Royal Wedding ... you couldn’t fail but to have a good day.
And I think most villagers who attended Times Territory parties marking the Royal Wedding would agree.
No more could this be said than in Welwyn, where it seemed the whole village had come out to Mill Lane to enjoy the Champagne oyster bar, coconut shy, giant Jenga game, barbecue, charity raffle, cake competition and the White Horse pub’s real ale festival.
In total the day, attended by around 400 people, raised more than �2,300 for Isabel Hospice.
While a mass celebration was going down in the hub of the village, the surrounding roads also marked the day with their own parties. One of which was in Wendover Drive, where 150 people came to enjoy the barbeque, Royal quiz and performance from a band.

Welwyn wasn’t the only village in party mood.
Several streets in Northaw, Watton-at-Stone and Ayot St Lawrence (pictured) were also marking the day with traditional fun and games.
