ROYSTON'S new mayor Councillor Peter Lill sampled the delights of home-baking and home-grown produce on Saturday.

He was a guest as the Royston Country Market celebrated its 45th anniversary.

The stall in the Corn Exchange was originally set-up by the Royston WI.

In those days it had a turn-over of £250-a-week.

Royston Country Market is a local non-profit making co-operative, which is run on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

The change in title came about three years ago when the Federation of Women's Institutes withdrew its name to protect its charitable status.
