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.
