Community event to make its bow

A COMMUNITY event described as a councillor’s “dream” is to take place for the first time this year.

The 2010 Community Exhibition, organised by North Royston Action Group (NRAG), will be held on Saturday October 23 at the Coombes Community Centre from 2pm until 5pm. If successful it could become an annual event.

It will include displays from many different local groups and organisations that will be providing demonstrations and activities for free.

Jayne Bratton, chair of NRAG, said: “Even if only one person joins a group or gets help that they didn’t know was there as a result of this exhibition, then it will be all worth it.

“However, with the amount of enthusiasm from the fantastic range of groups who will be there, I believe it will be a real success and many people will meet new friends and get support.”

NRAG are residents group from North Royston who formed in November last year in objection to the proposed building of 250 homes in the area.

Since then, with the help of Cllr Robert Inwood, they have pledged to set up a Neighbourhood Watch scheme, which will be launched at this event.
