The chairman of the Conservators of Therfield Heath and Greens has issued a statement highlighting the group’s neutrality, ahead of this evening’s election.
In a statement on the Conservators' website, John King said: "As chairman of the Conservators of Therfield Heath and Greens, I wish to confirm that the Election of Conservators to represent the Special Drainage District of Royston will take place on February 19, 2020, at 7.05 pm at King James Academy junior site.
"Two nominations have been received for the Special Drainage District of Royston Representative, so there will be an election.
"The Conservators remain neutral and wish both candidates the best.

The statement came more than a week after the election candidates' statements were posted on the Conservators of Heath and Greens website - where John Davison said the conservators want him to be re-elected.
