Having moved myself and my family to Royston just as the cinema closed, I have watched the town have its ups and downs.
There is no doubt that Tesco tries to dominate the area.
A good example is installing a Costa Coffee, knowing full well that a Starbucks is supposed to be coming to the town centre, therefore trying to try and get shoppers into the habit of using Tesco as a social meeting place prior to Starbucks possible arrival.
But the biggest puzzle to me and everyone I speak to is the ever-so-grand police station.

As far as I know, we don't even have a 24-hour police presence, as this is provided from Hertford.
The daftest thing I see is that there is often a portable building giving out advice less than 100m away!
Could this building not be utilised for some other purpose, along with the ridiculously under-used town hall?
Perhaps this area could be demolished and re-built to provide the long overdue leisure facilities for North Herts?
