The Mixed Group, which provides Christmas Day meals for lonely and elderly residents in the borough, will hold its Annual Sponsored Cycle Rally on Sunday, September 1, starting at 12.45pm.

It will involve completing a 10-mile loop from Autumn Grove in Welwyn Garden City to Hertford Town Football Club and back, following which cyclists will be rewarded with well-earned drinks, burgers and hotdogs.
