A QUARTET of local organisations have received a �5,000 funding boost from Royston's county councillor.
Cllr Fiona Hill has chosen four schemes to benefit from the cash, which comes from her locality budget.
She said: "There are all kinds of local groups and organisations whose ongoing contribution to the quality of life in the local community deserves our full support.
"As a Royston resident I understand just how important they are - and I also appreciate how hard they have to work to raise money to make improvements and take on new projects."
Royston Town football club are getting �1,500 to help develop a covered viewing area for spectators and their carers. The same amount will also go towards the cHALLenge fund, which is being used to finance the building of a new hall at Royston parish church.
Meanwhile, �1,000 donations will go to Royston bowling club to help pay for the resurfacing of their green, and the newly reformed Royston Timebank.
