SOMETHING was on offer for everyone at a community sport and fun day in Hatfield.
Volunteers from the University of Hertfordshire Students’ Union provided summer holiday family fun by helping to organise and run activities at the event in Salisbury Village.
The event was jointly organised by borough councillor Lynne Sparks, the University of Hertfordshire Students’ Union and Pcsos from Hatfield Police Station, with free snacks donated by Asda.
Cllr Sparks said: “The day was a great success. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, including our Pcsos.
“The student volunteers were fantastic with the youngsters and a real credit to the university.”
The sun shone on outdoor children’s activities, including a tug o’ war and football, along with relay, egg and spoon and three-legged races.
Children were presented with winners’ medals.
Ciaran O’Brien, student activities manager at the students’ union, said: “This kind of event shows how important it is for the community to come together and make a difference.”
The event had been re-arranged after the original date, June 6, had to be postponed due to the bad weather over the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee weekend.
