Saturday saw the return of the Garden Fair to Howardsgate in the town centre.

Organised by Welwyn Garden City Business Improvement District (BID), there was a festival vibe to the day with talented WH! Open Mic on Tour providing acoustic music.

People also enjoyed refreshments from Bill's Tea Tent and The Two Willows, while children met Paw Patrol and had glitter tattoos, thanks to the lovely Laila from Ashtons Estate Agents.
