The day started with family lino printing in the morning, led by local artist Liz Beardwell.

The kids enjoyed inking up the lino prints and then having a go at winding the printing press in and pulling the lever to create their print designs.

The printing press was used to print the first Royston Crow back in 1855.

In the afternoon, museum assistant Jenny Benton launched the new community cabinet display, called Sport in Royston – with help from a couple of the clubs who had contributed to it.
