The event, held by North Herts District Council on Wednesday, saw children get stuck into activities, including inflatable fun, Easter-themed arts and crafts, sports and play equipment for all ages and the added attraction this year of a ‘Big Paint’ area, which saw children get creative and messy. Jodie Robertson from NHDC’s active communities team, said: “It was a fantastic day at Priory Gardens, with arts and crafts, sports and play activities keeping lots of children entertained and happy.
