Welwyn Garden City learn about town’s heritage

SCHOOLCHILDREN from WGC got an insight into the history and day-to-day activities of where they live, during a whistle-stop tour of the town.

Students from Panshanger Primary School, in Daniells, visited a number of well known WGC locations, as part of a school project entitled “Where We Live”.

They visited Welwyn Hatfield Council’s offices at Campus West, to find out more about the work of the council and the services it provides.

They then took a trip to Hertfordshire Constabulary’s HQ on Stanborough Road, WGC Library, The Barn Theatre, Howard Centre, John Lewis and Sherrardspark Woods.

The visit was one of the projects that received funding from Welwyn Hatfield Council, as part of WGC’s 90th birthday celebrations.

“It will help local children learn more about the town they live in, and hopefully inspire a love of our heritage and history too.”
