A DEDICATED secretary is retiring from one of Royston's longest-running clubs.

Barbara Charter has worked for the Forget-Me-Not club for 30 years, but has decided to stand down in March.

She will be helping the club's committee select her replacement.

Mrs Charter, 64, said: "I will be staying on to help with the committee, but I just do not have the time to do the secretarial work anymore. I've really enjoyed my time and it will be very strange not doing it."
