Welwyn Hatfield councillor Terry Mitchinson, the executive member for Leisure, Culture and Communications, said: “The impact of COVID-19 on grassroots sport has been huge but the pandemic has also highlighted just how important our clubs are to the community for both physical and mental wellbeing.

“This forum is an ideal opportunity for clubs and groups to come together to learn what support is available to them and discuss how we can work together to promote participation in sport.”
