Welwyn Hatfield Royal Wedding street parties

WHILE businesses take advantage of the biggest celebration of the decade so far, residents are also getting on in the act and organising their own street parties.

The aroma of barbecues will be in the air, laughter from the fun and games will be heard from the surrounding areas and the red, white and blue bunting will deck many a Welwyn Hatfield road.

But just where are these celebrations taking place?

Organiser Aaron Cox is hoping he has the largest party going, with a massive barbecue and traditional games for the children and adults, including the egg and spoon race and the dress relay. The bunting-clad event runs from 1pm to 6pm.
