The festival was held on Sunday, June 11 at Phillimore Recreation Grounds in Gills Hill, Radlett. It featured a funfair, a raffle, a dog show and a children’s fancy dress parade. School choirs and local singer-songwriters performed on a live stage.

Vice chairman of Aldenham Parish Council Vivienne Charrett officially opened the festival.

Mr Dowden said: “I was delighted to attend the opening of this year’s Radlett Festival. It was a great event and I know how hard all the volunteers worked to make it such a success.

“At a time when there are so many divisions in the country it was wonderful to see our community coming together.

“I also enjoyed meeting Zach Levin, a young Harpenden entrepreneur at his lemonade stand, as well as the local history society.”
