Plans are being drawn up to build a bandstand in a park after a series of successful music events this summer.

The Borehamwood Bandstand Committee together with Elstree & Borehamwood Town Council and Hertsmere Borough Council will construct a performance space as part of the refurbishment of Meadow Park.

The Park in Borehamwood has hosted brass band concerts and other performances on Sunday afternoons throughout June and July.

The news has been welcomed by a number of bands who have played at the venue.

A spokesman for Welwyn Garden City Band said: “We would be very pleased to have the opportunity to play at Meadow Park in the future and to help support your bandstand venture.

“At a time when so many local authorities are cutting back on leisure activities, it is so good to see that your initiative has received local support and is moving forward so well.”
