Despite the cold weather over 250 local residents had a great time at a free community event in Borehamwood on Saturday (2 April).
Local people from across the town came together for an afternoon of games, sports and refreshments, whilst being able to find out the Hertsmere Community Safety Partnership and how they support the local community.
Councillor Pervez Choudhury, Portfolio Holder for Community Safety, said: "Thank you to everyone who attended our community event and made it such a success. The Hertsmere Community Safety Partnership is focused on working with our residents to help make our communities safer places for everyone and this community event was the perfect way to bring neighbours, friends and families together whilst also helping us to better understand the needs of our residents, as well as help them find out about what the partnership does.
"Unfortunately, the weather was a little chilly, but that didn't stop people of all ages coming along and having a great time. Thank you to all our partners who attended the event and contributed to such a fun afternoon. I would also like to thank Sophie Macken, one of Hertsmere's ex-Police Cadets, who is studying photography and very kindly came along to capture the fun.
"It was great to see people coming together in our local community."
At the event, representatives from Herts Police, Hertsmere Borough Council, Clarion Housing, Herts Mind Network, OneYMCA, Leecliffe Big Local and many more attended, providing information, advice and support to local residents on how they can support them.
The event took place between 11am and 3pm at Brook Meadow Park in Borehamwood.
