Jingle all the way at Welwyn Garden City fun run

DON’T forget the annual Isabel Hospice Bells and Bows Fun Run/Walk takes place at Stanborough Lakes, WGC, on Sunday.

Sponsored by John Lewis and supported by the Welwyn Hatfield Times and Old Knebworth-based Jack FM, participants can choose to run 5k, or walk (or even run!) a 4k route.

And while fancy dress is optional, it is encouraged!

Organiser Julie North said: “This is different to your normal Santa run as we encourage runners and walkers to dress up in any festively-inspired outfit they like.

“That could be a fairy, a Christmas tree, or a reindeer.
