Festive feast for town’s elderly
A festive feast was held in Royston for elderly people in the town.
The event saw about 20 pensioners sing carols and enjoy a Christmas meal at the Royston Day Centre, with the town’s mayor Robert Inwood and district councillor Bill Davidson enjoying the fun.
Manager Sharon Rednup said: “It’s a Christmas celebration and we’re getting them to come along to wish them happy Christmas.
“We’re also doing it to raise the profile that there’s something going on for the elderly.”
The centre plays host to a number of events for pensioners, including bingo and art classes.
