A new online diary for Royston has been launched to help clubs and organisations to publicise events.

The Rotary club of Royston has launched the Community Diary to provide residents with as many up-to-date details as possible of events happening in Royston.

Rotary club members Tony Briar, who set up the website, said: “From talking to various groups during sessions of our Rotary Royston Breakfast Club we discovered that there was a need for a community diary.

“The idea was from groups and organisation to publicise their own events and also be aware of what else was happening in the community.

“We hope that all organisations will contact us for access and we can produce a comprehensive diary of events taking place.

“The success of the community diary will be seen by the number of clubs and organisations contact us,” he said.

Further details on the community diary are at www.roystondiary.info or contact Tony Briar at diaryadmin@roystondiary.info

The Rotary Royston Community Breakfast Club started at the end of last year and provides a forum to discuss community issues.

The club meets once a month at The Bull Hotel, Royston and details can be obtained by e-mailing communitybreakfast@roystondiary.info

Meanwhile, a charity which helps deprived children in India through sport has received a donation from the rotary club of £500.

Magic Bus helps children by using sporting activities towards a better life in the future.

Charity worker Ellen Hughes explained that the idea was to give children a path “from childhood to livelihood”.

She said: “For the children the games excel in building physical, social and personal skills. The lessons we give teach children about education, gender, health and key issues affecting them.”

Children are given the opportunity for education and, eventually, to seek a career. Magic Bus runs in 10 states in India and has reached out to more than 250,000 children.
