This Saturday, July 19 the high street in the Old Town Hemel Hempstead was alive with excitement and filled with people enjoying the festival that businesses and Dacorum Borough Council had put together.
There was something for everyone, from live music to a variety of stalls selling a vast range of goods. Plus there was something for the taste buds too, food from the Caribbean and Asia rubbed shoulders with the more traditional sandwiches.
The Mayor and Mayoress of Dacorum Borough Council Cllr Allan and Mrs Wendy Lawson opened the event by cutting the ribbon at the newly installed ornate iron gates, human Statues of Anne Boleyn and Henry the Eighth welcomed people as they jostled through to be met by the Rock Choir who gave an outstanding performance.
Mike Penning MP for Hemel Hempstead warmly welcomed everyone to the stage and opened the start of the stage events.
It was a really fantastic day…..the sun shone and the thousands of people turn out to celebrate the launch of the Old Town High Street. There was a real community spirt.
