The annual Royston May Fayre was once again a huge success with record numbers enjoying the fun.
The event, organised by Royston Town Council’s May fayre committee, saw people flock to the Priory Memorial Gardens to enjoy the entertainment.
Mayor Sarah Dingley said: “The May fayre was tremendous fun. It had a wonderful buzz, and the dark clouds and occasional cold wind didn’t deter anyone.
“Heartfelt thanks go to all the organisers and contributors for making it such a huge success. It was a great day out for everyone.”
The town band and dance groups provided music and displays, and the new eco/environmental section in the town hall car park was popular with visitors signing up for North Herts Bee Keepers courses, getting items fixed by the Royston Repair Café team and hearing NHDC’s recycling advice.
