The Royston Open Secrets exhibition at Therfield Heath on Sunday saw residents flock to see stands and displays from a variety of businesses, charities and community groups.

Organiser Linda Turner said: “I was thrilled and delighted to have another successful event.

“It was just amazing to see so many people on The Heath relaxing in 
the warm weather and enjoying themselves. Royston Open Secrets is now in its sixth year. Its primary focus is to provide an event which enables local businesses and community organisations in Royston and surrounding villages to showcase themselves to the residents of our wonderful town.”

The main exhibition was held in a grand marquee, while outside a classic car show and various other displays took place.
