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.
