RESIDENTS GET IN A JIG FOR COMMUNITY CENTRE


L


ocals from Abbots Langley enjoyed two days of jigsaw fun last month when the community


centre held its third annual puzzle sale. The jigfest held across 9 and 10 April attracted


people from all areas including Harrow, Essex and Chorleywood. They turned up to witness an array of puzzles on display, kindly donated by the locals of Abbots Langley. The aim was to raise as much money as


possible in order for the community centre to continue its refurbishment project. My Abbots News caught up with Brian Hibberd, organiser of the event, who said: “The jigfest was a huge success and we managed to raise £1,750. “A good number of people turned up and


everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. It turned out to be a miniature art gallery with several hundred puzzles on display and we later received some very appreciative comments about the event. “Volunteers worked continuously hard


throughout the day replacing the puzzles as soon as they were sold.” Sporting events, pets, cartoons and scenic


Jigsaws ranged from scenic views to sporting events, pets and cartoons.


views were some of the many puzzles on display at the community centre in Manor House Grounds. Brian added: “The idea of the jigfest came


about after a visit to the Isle of Wight. A local church holds a jigsaw festival every year usually lasting for up to a week. They have been holding the festival annual for more than 15 years and I knew instantly that Abbotts would be able to do the same to aid the next phase in the community centre refurbishment and I am glad we did.” The next Abbots Langley Jigfest will be held on Saturday 24 March 2012.
