THERE was something for everyone when the Highfield Park fete was held on Saturday afternoon.
Crowds of visitors flocked to the park to enjoy a day which was geared around family fun.
For the children there was a bouncy castle, fairground rides and a coconut shy as well as face painting while for older members of the community, there were craft and food stalls as well as live entertainment.
The Verulam Amateur Radio Club played at the fete with a special event callsign granted by Ofcom.
