Over 4,000 people attended the London Colney fireworks show last Sunday.
While last year’s show attracted 2,300 people, this year’s Morris Playing Fields show blew that record away.
London Colney parish council chair Malcolm MacMillan said: “This was the best and biggest ever show.
“It was a happy occasion and the public were most appreciative of the parish council’s effort.
“It’s great to be able to give something back to the community which benefits so many people in a joyful way”
