Fireworks lit up the sky in Royston and the surrounding villages over the weekend to celebrate Bonfire Night.
There were displays at many schools, including Icknield Walk First School in Royston’s Poplar Drive.
Headteacher Jane Sherwood said: “Our display this year was a great success.
“Our display was opened by deputy mayor Iain Leggett, who did a countdown, the firework display itself lasted over 20 minutes and was greeted by a round of applause at the end.
“The fireworks were of the usual high quality, with some beautiful patterns in the sky and some very loud bangs.

“I would like to say thank you to everyone involved, it is such a great event for the local community but we couldn’t put it on without our volunteers.
“We hope to raise at least £2,000 towards an all weather running track for our school field, so that our children can run on the field whatever the weather!”
