EVEN heavy rain showers failed to dampen the bank holiday spirit at Royston's May Fayre on Monday.
There was plenty on offer for those who braved the weather - and came prepared for it.
HUNDREDS turned out for this year's Royston May Fayre in the Priory Memorial Gardens.
And that was despite a downpour early in the proceedings and more rain later in the afternoon.
Royston's town clerk Susan Thonton-Bjork said: "In spite of the weather it was still a success.
"Those who came seemed to have enjoyed themselves."

The rain did mean that Kelly Westlake's Academy dancing school could not give its display.
It's the second time the dance school had been booked to take part in the event - and the second time it has rained.
There was plenty of shelter in one marquee, where the crowds could enjoy Royston Town Band.
And the band was joined by one of its ex-members, Alison Balsom, who is now one of the leading classical musicians in the country.
