SCHOOL children in Crow country have been giving Royston a Big Tidy Up.
The pupils at Tannery Drift School were out and about spring cleaning their schools grounds this week. Children from Icknield Walk School undertook a similar initiative.
Both these events were part of the Big Royston Tidy Up, organised by Royston in Bloom, which began on Sunday and runs until this Sunday.
Angela Louch, from the Royston in Bloom committee, said: "It is hoped that this early effort will help to present Royston at its best in this year's Anglia in Bloom competition.

Other groups who have been tidying up Royston include volunteers from the Trinity Life Church, who on Sunday joined Royston in Bloom committee members to clean up the Priory Memorial Gardens and the town hall car park.
