Stevenage Day is resounding success
THOUSANDS of people turned out for Stevenage Day on Sunday and enjoyed fun in the sun.
The 51st Stevenage Day on King George V Playing Fields was opened by mayor Michael Downing and featured more than 100 stalls, as well as activities and entertainment with a community focus.
A seven-a-side football festival ran throughout the afternoon, and other events included dance displays by the majorettes of North Herts Sparklets and Camps Hill Cheerleaders, as well as a Barking Mad dog display and a Punch and Judy show.
Boro Bear, the mascot of Stevenage Football Club, paid a visit to the event, taking the Blue Square Premiership Trophy with him.
Cllr Howard Burrell, Stevenage Borough Council’s executive member for children and young people, culture, sport and leisure, said: “This was one of the most successful Stevenage Days ever. We took the decision to make this year’s event very Stevenage-centric and it definitely paid off. It was great to see some of our fantastic local talent – young and old – performing in the arena in front of their families and friends.
