THE go-ahead has been given for Royston Town Council to produce its own newsletter.

But each edition of the Town Crier will need the approval of the finance committee and will not be left in the hands of a working party.

An edition of 250 copies has already been distributed as a "trial run".

The decision came after Councillor Rod Kennedy had raised concern that the committee had not approved the current edition.

"Anything going out in the town council's name has to have the town council's approval," he said.

Members were told that one criticism of the newsletter was that it was not quite enough council-based.

Councillor Bill Prime said he hoped other editions would "reflect the work of the town council".

The newsletter has been produced to help the town council towards meeting the criteria of gaining Quality Council status.

Cllr Lindsay Davison, who led the working parking in producing the newsletter, said it "did do some selling of the town council".

It included, too, short articles on other organisations.

The newsletter is planned to be produced each quarter.
