We have some great public spaces in Hitchin and one of our favourite is Bancroft Gardens, that often overlooked green space opposite The Victoria pub.
Overlooked it may be, but for Michelle Smith from The Pilates Pod on Bucklersbury, it's the perfect site for a day of fitness.
Michelle put on the second FitFest this weekend and it featured a range of activities from a lovely dance display to aerobics and, of course, Pilates demonstrations.
There was fitness gear to try and buy, new skills to learn and community groups to investigate.
We're good at music and drama activities in Hitchin and it's great to see someone putting their energy into making fitness a priority for a few more of us.
Here's to FitFest 2016!
