Royston Swimming Club has been awarded a community grant to fund its entry into a county-wide competition.

The grant of £190 from North Herts Council will enable the club to compete in the Hertfordshire Swimming League - Major League.

The league encourages friendly competition between neighbouring clubs, with the focus on taking part in a team event and building collaboration among swimmers.

Royston Town Council is encouraging more voluntary organisations, clubs and charities within the town to apply for grants.
