READING The Crow, I am becoming depressed about the future of Royston.
We are all aware of the heavy Council Tax that we have to pay. What are we getting back? It has been said that we are subsidising Letchworth and Baldock to our detriment.
I feel that the atmosphere in this once lively town is getting very negative. It is losing its character and becoming a dormitory suburb. I am wondering what this town will hold for the young people in the future.
I would imagine that they will go elsewhere. I will express the opinion that the older generation are keeping this town on its feet. But in another 20 years who knows?
We are getting a lot less for the money we pay.

I do feel that councillors don't carry a lot of clout. They have their meetings and talk a lot, but nothing positive happens. The public is understandably very apathetic.
