The Society's stand at Discovery Day on Harpenden Common on 14 June attracted a great deal of interest. Copies of 'Harpenden Races' sold out by mid-afternoon, and our photographic display of the history of the recently-closed Harpenden House Hotel stimulated interest both in the past occupiers of the building and discussion about its future fate.

Thanks to the committee and Society members for giving up time to share their enthusiasm with visitors to the stand.

Passers-by were also encouraged to visit our exhibition on Harpenden in WWI in Park Hall during the afternoon.
