AFTER months of waiting, a plaque has been placed on a new development in Royston.
The block of flats in Princes Mews now has a plaque in honour of former Crow editor Fred Sillence.
It took months of talks between the Post Office and developers Stephen Howard Homes to come to an agreement over the name for the block.
When Royston Town Council was asked for its suggestion it immediately said it should be named after Mr Sillence - and insisted on the name when a second request came from the Post Office.

Crow editor Les Baker said: "It's wholly appropriate that the block should have the name Sillence Court, as the development is on the site of the old Crow office. It was a place where Fred spent many hours working on The Crow.
"Now we're waiting to see whether there will be a request for a name for any other development in Royston, when we would suggest one that recognises Frank Willmott, who was editor of The Crow for more than 30 years.
