Positive response for new theatre/cultural centre in Harpenden


The Society’s stand at the Harpenden Carnival on June 10 drew lots of interest both in the developments in Harpenden we were able to tell visitors about and the exciting competition. Our committee members spent the day answering questions and handing out over 300 competition leaflets.

Town Mayor Cllr Rosemary Farmer drew the winners on Wed June 14 at the Town Hall Council Chambers. She had spent most of Carnival Day on the Common with many of the exhibitors and talking to lots of local people.
