The Parish Council holds a Civic Service each year, usually in February.
Local dignitaries, including the Mayors of Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield and the Lord Lieutenant of the County are invited, together with representatives of groups within the parish and Borough who support the community and our young people. This is a way of thanking them all for their hard work and dedication. It is also open to members of the parish. It is also an opportunity to award those who have shown a commitment over the years and in 2016 a certificate was given to Geoff Matthews for tending his allotment for over 50 years. He followed in the footsteps of his father, who had also had an allotment before him. On that occasion over 60 people attended the service at St Mary's Church Refreshments are served after the service to those who have been invited.
