Two new activity maps were launched yesterday as part of the Welwyn Garden City Centenary Foundation’s Sport for All project.
The magnificent statue of Ebenezer Howard created by talented sculptor Ben Twiston-Davies has now been unveiled on Howardsgate. Creating a new commemorative sculpture to the town’s founder was one of the most popular requests from the community for the town’s centenary celebrations, and we ensured we found the right sculptor to do justice to the visionary founder of our town.
Welwyn Garden City has a long and proud history of amateur music and theatre groups since construction of the town began in 1920. The original founders of the town were passionate about music, theatre and sport which formed a vital part of Ebenezer Howard’s vision of building a town and community for healthy living.
Eagle eyed residents may have noticed that the Ebenezer Howard memorial roundel has been lifted from its home on Howardsgate – a herculean task which took three hours!
