A number of Crow country groups are getting involved in Voluntary Arts Week.

The Creative Royston committee, which organises Royston Arts Festival, is supporting this year’s UK-wide week-long event which will be taking place between 9-18 May, and is promoting several local initiatives

Creative Royston chairman Graham Palmer said: “It’s a great opportunity for everyone to simply have a go at a new activity.”

There are opportunities to sing with the Royston Choral Society and the Singing Aloud group; to play with the Royston Town Band during a rehearsal session or to join in with the Royston Writers’ Circle.

There are knitting sessions at the Royston and District Museum and in Barley.

Creative Royston was set up by the Royston Arts Festival committee at its annual meeting when it was decided to support arts events during the year.
