It was lovely, informal, interactive and very informative at the same time - great, powerful and noisy combination"!!

Both halls were full of residents, interacting with each other as well as with our local agencies. Children Centre, AGE UK, Mind in Mid Herts, Resolve, Herts Aid, Butterflies and so many more made the event so special.
