Big Lunch free picnic events are being held in Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield town centres today (Sunday).
A world record-breaking football freestyler, John Farnworth, will be showing off his skills in Welwyn Garden City as the town marks the Big Lunch.
And in Hatfield, there will be small fairground rides, games and arts and crafts, as the Big Lunch “goes to the seaside”.
The annual event is held to bring neighbours together.
WGC’s event will run from 11.30am to 3pm, while the Hatfield Big Lunch will be held in White Lion Square between 11am and 3pm.
Mandy Perkins, the council’s executive member for planning and business and member of the Welwyn Garden City Town Centre Partnership Board, said: “Year on year the Big Lunch keeps getting bigger as millions of people throughout the UK get together to enjoy time with their neighbours.”
