THE ROYSTON Tapestry has been on display for councillors to see the progress of the ambitious project.
About three-quarters of the tapestry, depicting the history of Royston, has been completed by a group of volunteers at the Royston & District Museum, and members of Royston Town Council were invited to the museum to view their work.
Museum curator Carole Kaszak, pictured above with the tapestry, said: "The tapestry has not been on display for several years, so this gave the museum the opportunity to explain the importance of the project and its progress so far."
The tapestry was started 15 years ago, and it is thought that it will be completed in five years, after which it is planned to be on permanent display in the museum.

"The museum is run by Royston Town Council and although we talk a lot about the tapestry there are some councillors who have not had the opportunity to see it," said Carole.
"There was certainly a great deal of interest and admiration in the project."
