Our huge efforts paid off! Our annual Peartree Fun Day was, without a doubt, probably the best so far.

At least 800 people came to the Woodhall Community Centre to enjoy a rich variety of games, stalls, entertainment and sports demonstrations.

Former borough councillor Michal Siewniak, the principal organiser, said: "We have planned and delivered one of the best, if not the best, Peartree Fun Days ever. The place was truly buzzing. People had so much to do, inside and outside. Mobile stadium, Irish School of Dancing, Holwell and Our Lady's Primary Schools, raffle prizes, fencing and martial art demonstration meant that the event had so much to offer.

The Peartree Fun Day brought successfully the local residents together, helped to raise the profile of the area, which is often described as deprived, put a lot of smiles on so many faces and improve community relations! We are already thinking about next year.

Our special guest, former England goalkeeper David James, chatted to visitors and stayed with us until the end!

Our Fun Day would have not happened without a help and financial support from the Welwyn Hatfield Housing Trust and local county cllr, Malcolm Cowan. Monies raised will support our local charity, Resolve.
