AFTER much debate proposals for a drink ban in Royston town centre and the nearby Priory Memorial Gardens were given the go-ahead.

The move came after complaints about anti-social behaviour and vandalism in the area.

North Hertfordshire District Council was studying the results of a 28-day consultation exercise in which it called on the public for views on the scheme.

During the year The Crow campaigned for the ban after residents reported property being damaged and anti-social behaviour in the Priory Memorial Gardens.
