Councillor urges help to keep Radlett festival going

An Aldenham Parish Councillor says that the Radlett Festival may cease to exist unless they can find help urgently. Cllr Viv Charrett praised the help of the volunteers over the last 10 years and hopes that in the future the festival can come back to the village. She said: “It is with great sadness that the Festival Committee have decided to bring the Festival programme to an end. The committee have had several retirees, after 10 years of highly successful events,  but have found it impossible to recruit enough new committee members to run the Festival this year. “In our view, now is the best time to make this decision, as, if it was left any later, we would have people making plans to come along, which would then have to be cancelled.  We have been asking for new members for over six months now, without success, so, with great regret, the Festival is cancelled for this year. “When we started up the Festival 10 years ago, it was the only large community event of its type in Radlett, but now the Parish Council run both Limitless in the summer, and the Winter Fair, so there are now more community events in the village. “Maybe, if there is sufficient demand, someone will get this going again with a new committee in the future, but that is up to a new generation to decide if this is what they want, and we will watch with interest and encouragement as required. “Many thanks to all who came and participated over the last 10 years. We couldn’t have done it without you!”
