A campaign is taking place next week to put a spotlight on independent businesses in Royston.

Royston Independents Week, organised by Royston First BID, encourages independent businesses, residents and visitors to celebrate the town's growing independent business community.

News, offers and events will be shared throughout the week on Royston First's social media, and roystontown.org will feature a directory of businesses involved.

Mayor Cllr Lisa Adams, Royston town crier Graham Pfaff, and Royston BID manager Paul Brown will be visiting independent businesses in the town centre on Monday, July 4 - to mark 'Independents' Day'.

Paul Brown said: "The week of July 4 is a great time to remind people how important independent local businesses are to the health and resilience of Royston.


"Our role at Royston First BID is to promote and protect the premises-based businesses in the town, and so during this week, and beyond, we wish to raise public awareness about shoppers staying local to shop, eat and enjoy.

"If you are an independent premises-based business in Royston, please share any upcoming events, offers, or news with us via info@royston.com, and we will be delighted to share this on our social platforms."
