For the year 2013-2014 the Chairman  chose the charity cazfest and the Civic Dinner was held on 21st March 2014 in Rhodes Arts Complex, Bishops Stortford This event was organised by the chairman themselves so we hold no records of the numbers attending.

For the year 2014-2015 the Chairman  chose the  charities  Isabel Hospice and McMillan. The  Civic Dinner was held on on 20th March 2015 at County Hall, Hertford. Approximately 145 guests attended, 21 of which were our District Councillors.

For the year 2015-2016 the Chairman chose the  charities  Mudlarks and Carers of Hertfordshire. The Civic Dinner was held  on 19th March at Tewin Bury Farm Hotel, Tewin. Approximately 93 guests attended, 20 of which were our District Councillors

The numbers of guests and councillors attending is approximate as some guest were added/changed at last minute/on the day and so records may not have been updated.

All our Civic Dinners are self-funding, so tickets are sold, sponsorship gained and this covers the cost of the event and any profit is donated to the Chairman's Charity.
