Street furniture in Royston has been repainted thanks to a grant from the Shared Prosperity Fund.

The Shared Prosperity Fund is given to North Herts Council, which administers and monitors the outcomes to improve town centres.

The aim of the fund is to improve town centres in the district post-pandemic - after numbers of people visiting town centres inevitably reduced following lockdown restrictions.

To enhance the environment in Royston, the town council organised the painting of benches, finger post signs, railing and bollards.


Mayor of Royston Cllr Lisa Adams said: "This work is a welcome improvement to the town centre and we are very pleased with the results."

Hitchin and Letchworth have also benefited from the Shared Prosperity Fund.
