A Gidea Park woman is organising a pop-up festival for next month.

Lise Campbell-Price said she wants the event to be "community-focused" and to bring local businesses together.

The mother-of-two told this paper: "I want to bring a community feel back to the area, and for people to reconnect after the past 16 months."

Lise, who owns her own events company, posted on a community Facebook group about her idea on Sunday (July 25), and has already received over 70 comments of support from local business and families.

"I've been thinking about it for a while, and I've already had such amazing feedback from the community," she added.
