THE start of a project aimed at youngsters looking into the past has been described as a success.

Those taking part have now been given an initial project to complete by next month.

The Royston Time Trackers has been set up by Royston Museum to give youngsters from eight-16 the chance to explore objects, buildings and history.

Museum curator Carole Kaszak said an introductory meeting for the group was a success.

"They went away determined to do the project they have been set," she said.

The project involves looking at buildings around Royston and reporting on their differences.

"There was certainly a lot of enthusiasm," she said.

The group was helped by local archaeologists Sylvia Beamon, and father and son team Clive and James Dilley.

"The project they are now doing is just to get them started.

There will be other aspects we will be looking at in the future," added Mrs Kaszak.
