ROYSTON'S thriving farmers market has received the backing of MP Oliver Heald.

Mr Heald visited the monthly market last weekend to show his support for the local farmers and businesses trading there.

The North East Herts MP said: "I always like to go to Royston Farmers' Market when I can and last Sunday I was able to catch up with old friends. Peter Gear and his wife, Yvonne, from Highbury Farm in Wood End were selling their prize-winning lamb, which I had later for lunch.

"Also there was Vaughan West who I know from Royston church and the train to London. Vaughan is a long-standing member of Royston Labour party and it was good to see that the Farmers' Market is supported across the political divide," he said.
