A charity helping people with disabilities to get out and about in and around Hitchin is holding its last outdoor picnic in the town later today.

Hitchin Helping Hands will be staging its final Picnic in the Park at Bancroft Park this Sunday from 2pm to 5pm due to work commencing on the park as part of a programme of improvements to the area.

Helping Hands volunteer Joan Kirby, left, said: “We’ll be holding our last-ever Picnic in the Park this Sunday as we’ll have no kitchen facilities from now on. Hitchin Town Band will be playing at the free event. We’d also like to say thanks to Hitchin Motorcare.”
