ROYSTON Town Council is seeking donations towards the cost of new links on the mayoral chain.

The council needs £600 to pay for 10 new links for the chain - which will include one for last year's mayor Cllr Bill Prime, and this year's mayor, Cllr Lynn Berry.

Town clerk Celia Walpole told members of the council's finance committee that links have always been purchased through donations.

At the moment, she said, there were a number of people interested in sponsoring a link.

The mayoral chain originally cost £250 in the 1950s when it was for the use of the then chairman of the Royston Urban District Council.

n For details about becoming a sponsor, call the town council on 01763 245484.
