IT now seems possible that Royston is going to get an all-weather sports pitch.
Councillors will now decided whether to give the proposals the go-ahead when the scheme for a site at The Meridian School is considered.
There should not really be any argument over the plans.
The site earmarked for the all-weather pitch is a decent distance from residential properties and, therefore, should not cause disturbance.

Indeed, the planned location is an improvement on a previous scheme which would have seen such a development too close to properties.
It is encouraging, too, to listen to The Meridian School head teacher, Dr Michael Firth, say that the all-weather pitch is for schools and the community as a whole.
- 1 Flasher who attacked officers appears in court
- 2 Man jailed after attacking victim with glass bottle in hotel room
- 3 Ex-footballers set for charity match to raise money for hospital cardiology department
- 4 Have you seen missing parrot Charlie?
- 5 Students' work featured in online art exhibition
- 6 Eight picture-perfect picnic spots across East Anglia
- 7 Plenty of Covid vaccines available for over 23s
- 8 Bassingbourn reverse trend of losses at Helions Bumpstead with fine win
- 9 New bus and cycle shelters to help bring sustainable travel to town
- 10 Motorhome and car involved in A505 crash
We are sadly lacking such a facility in Royston and it was recognised more than a decade ago by Sport England that such a development would receive a positive response.
Let us hope that the sporting body is thinking that way as preparations are made to submit a bid for Lottery cash.
