Organise your own celebration
There is real pride and much affection for the garden city among its residents who recognise the town as a great place to live, to work, and to raise a family. The Welwyn Garden City Centenary Foundation has been established to help devise and coordinate a programme of events and volunteers to celebrate 100 years of Welwyn Garden City in 2020.
We are bringing together residents and businesses, old and new, past and present, to play a part in making Welwyn Garden City 2020 a success.
As a company, organisation or individual with links to the garden city, this is your opportunity to get involved and be part of this once in a century celebration.
The vision is:
- To celebrate Ebenezer Howard’s vision and ethos for healthy living and a ‘true marriage of town and country’;
- To promote WGC as a desirable destination to live, work and play;
- To gain town-wide appreciation and pride in WGC, with associated involvement of schools and other stakeholders to ensure an ongoing legacy;
- To provide promotional and economic opportunities which will benefit WGC and Hertfordshire businesses.
The Foundation is organising and funding a programme of Signature Events throughout 2020, if you would like to organise your own Satellite Event we would delighted. To help you plan and run an event we have created a toolkit, available to download below along with our official logo.
