Community service award for Arts Festival pioneer
Rotary club makes presentation
ONE of the pioneers of Royston’s revived arts festival has received a community service award.
The Royston Rotary Club gave the award to Kathy Wholley for her outstanding contribution to the local community.
She was given the honour at a special dinner held at Bluntswood Hall.
Ms Wholley resurected the arts festival in 2007, and has helped the event blossom into a fixture on the Royston calendar.
