ROYSTON town centre has been brightened up by the addition of new screens in some empty shops.
The seven screens cost �2,500 to purchase and install, and each one depicts a different scene from Crow Country. They have been put up in the windows of shops in the High Street and Angel Pavement, and been paid for by the Royston First business improvement district company.
Geraint Burnell, Royston's town centre manager, said he had already had a lot of positive feedback about the scheme.
He said: "I've had several people get in touch to say how nice they look, as well several comments from visitors.

"We've got quite a good deal on the screens, and I think they really enhance the town centre."
One shop which has yet to be given a makeover is the vacant ex-Woolworths store, and Mr Burnell explained that this would be done once the weather improves.

"The administrators haven't let us have access to that shop, so we'll be putting something on the outside of the window instead. However, we can't do this until the weather warms up a bit, otherwise it won't stick," he said.
"We'll take the screens down as the shops fill up, and possibly move them to other vacant units. We're hopeful this will be one scheme which we don't have to continue long term," he added.
