Welwyn Garden City fete today

RESIDENTS are being invited to a WGC church’s first ever fete to help with funding.

The St Francis of Assisi Church, on Church Road, will be the venue for all the traditional fun and games on Saturday, as well as a special auction of promises, a choral concert and a barbeque.

Ed Giberti, organiser of the day which runs from 2pm to 7pm, said: “There are massive fetes around this area like at Lemsford, but we thought it’s about time WGC had its own huge event.”

Highlights of the day are set to include the opportunity to meet members of the WGC fire brigade, as well a series of fun and games laid on from a bouncy castle to tombolas.

Additionally there will be a host of stalls offering crafts, books, plants, jewellery and refreshments.
