THE creator of a new radio station is offering 10 businesses free advertisements in a bid to help keep Royston's town centre alive.
Andrew Fowler, of Roysia FM, will be offering the fully voiced advertisements to businesses.
"We want to do something for Royston companies and providing the advertisements is a good way of doing this," he said.
The radio station, which will be based at Roysia House in Market Hill, should be launched on December 11, but Mr Fowler said he still needs to raise an additional £7,000.
