ROYSTON'S mayor, Cllr Paul Grimes, was guest of honour at the Garden House Hospice's coffee morning.
Cllr Grimes attended the event, at the hospice shop in the High Street, with his wife Charlotte, and their baby daughter Imogen.
He said: "The Garden House Hospice is my charity for the year, so we're really pleased to be here supporting this event.
