This year’s Open Day proved a great success with circa 1,500 visitors attending the community event at the grounds of Bishops’ College on Saturday 6 July.

The yearly event brings together local businesses, charities, entertainment, as well as the opportunity for visitors to meet and speak with Broxbourne Councillors, officers, and even members of local emergency services.

Despite the weather being gloomier than in previous weekends, the crowd was able to fully enjoy all that was on offer on the day. This included food stalls, a varied range of vintage cars, face painting, a selection of inflatable fun for the younger visitors, performances from various talented individuals including an impressive dance performance from The Vallé Academy students, and not forgetting the most anticipated attraction of the event, the Council’s mascot Bob the badger.

The Mayor of the Borough of Broxbourne, Councillor Steve Wortley said: “This is my first time attending the Open Day as the Mayor of Broxbourne Council and I couldn’t be more pleased with the turnout. It’s not often that we get to see such a great mix of local residents come together to celebrate and support all the great services the Borough has on offer.”
