Youngsters from across the borough submitted their best snaps, with the winners given prizes at an awards do last week.

Welwyn Hatfield mayor, councillor Barbara Fitzsimon, handed out trophies, certificates and gift vouchers to 18 children whose photographs were judged by the WGC Photographic Club.

The winners will have their snaps entered into the “best of the best” competition for the WGC centenary celebrations in 2020.
