NEW gates have been installed at a park.
It is hoped that the gates, at the Fish Hill entrance of Priory Memorial Gardens in Royston, will not only look attractive but also help control anti-social behaviour.
They were officially opened yesterday (Wednesday) by Cllr Fiona Hill, chairman of North Herts District Council's Royston area committee.
Cllr Tricia Gibbs, portfolio holder for community engagement at the district council, said: "The council is determined to do all it can to improve our town centres and this is a good example of the sort of improvement we can bring about.

"We are very pleased that these fine looking gates have been installed and we hope that they will add to the appearance of the gardens and help reduce the incidence of anti-social behaviour in the park."
The gates, which cost £3,200, have been financed by the area committee following discussions with the police.
