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.

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