Elstree & Borehamwood’s Civic Festival has been given a cash grant to help “bring the community together”.

Taylor Wimpey donated £500 towards running the event, which is held over a two-week period every June.

The construction firm is currently building houses in Gemini Park, Borehamwood.

Tracey Malton, finance officer and deputy clerk at Elstree & Borehamwood Town Council, said: “We are working hard on the festival and we have a great line-up of events planned.

“People really look forward to the civic festival and we like to keep it going year after year because we think it brings the community together.”

People will be given a preview of what is coming up during the fortnight at the pre-festival celebrations on May 3.

The festival kicks off on Saturday, June 14 with a parade which will have a television and film theme.

A special programme of events will then run until the final day of the festival, Monday, June 30.

Families’ Day - one of the highlights of the event - will include falconry, mountain bike and dog displays, as well as a Harry Potter roadshow, balloon modelling, puppet shows and circus acts.

Other events set to take place during the festival include Zumba sessions, history walks, a schools art show, a flower festival, performances by brass bands and choirs and a talent show.
