It’s Carers Week from June 10th – 16th and charity Carers in Hertfordshire is inviting people who provide unpaid care to someone due to their age, illness or disability, along to its free events.

The charity provides information, advice, learning opportunities and other support to Hertfordshire’s carers and has several events taking place in Hatfield during Carers Week, including:
