A POSSE of pro-active pensioners have been sprucing up some of Royston's public toilets.

The toilets, at Royston Bus Station, almost went down the pan last year, but were saved from closure when Taxi firm Meltax agreed to take over the running of them from North Herts District Council.

Now Terry Hutt, from Royston Pensioner's Action Group, has organised a task force to give them a lick of paint.

Mr Hutt, who led a campaign to save the toilets, said: "We wanted to help Geoff Dawes, from the taxi company, who has done pensioners a great service by taking over the toilets.

"They are a very important facility for the town, so it is good to have been able to redecorate them," he said.

North Herts district council had decided to close the toilets after building a new, enlarged, toilet block at Fish Hill, Royston.
