I ATTENDED the Young Person of the Year awards for North Herts on Friday evening - I was honoured to be one of the judges - and I would like to congratulate all the nominees and especially the finalists.

This year there were three finalists that came from Royston with two of those gaining third and second places.

The weekend for me was full of young people as I attended the Stage Right Showtime extravaganza at The Meridian School.

As always the show had a mix of traditional to the more modern dance.

The evening was a huge success and I would like to thank Stage Right for inviting me and allowing me to present its awards at the end.

I have to say that both events show that the youth of today, especially in Royston, are not as bad as has been suggested.

Once again my congratulations to all and thank you for a wonderful weekend.

Cllr LYNN BERRY

Royston Town Mayor
