ROYSTON'S Big Tidy Up has received the backing of Oliver Heald.
The North East Herts MP joined a group of volunteers giving the Priory Memorial Gardens a spring clean ahead of the official launch of the Tidy Up on March 29, as the town prepares for the launch of the Roytston in Bloom competition.
Mr Heald, who lives in Royston, said he was "delighted" to be able to lend a hand. He added: "This whole idea is wonderful.
"We are very lucky to live in such a beautiful town, and we should all be taking care of it as much as we can."
Angela Louch, from the Royston in Bloom committee, said she was grateful for the support of Mr Heald, Royston Town Council, and North Herts District Council.
She said: "We are still looking for suitable places to site extra recycling bins during the Big Tidy up week only.
"So far we have confirmed there will be one at the Coombes Community Centre in Burns Road, and at Royston Fire Station, and we hope to find hosts for other bins in due course."
The committee is also looking for help as it prepares its entry for Anglia in Bloom.
Angela said: "We need to submit a short film of Royston through the year and now might be a good time to do it with all the daffodils blooming. If anyone would like to help us with this then we would be really pleased to hear from them."
The film would be a maximum of 10 minutes long. If you would like to help, contact the In Bloom team via Royston Town Hall.
