We look back at 12 months in Crow Country - starting with January
IT’S the time of year to cast our eyes back over the last 12 months, and pick out the highs and lows of a year of Royston news.
Reporter Joe Tyler takes a trawl through the archives to see what news has affected the people of Crow country in 2010.
7 – The first paper of the year brought fearful news for one of Royston’s most celebrated events – the Arts Festival.
A spokesman for the volunteer group that runs the annual event admitted there was a “very real possibility” no festival would go ahead in 2010 due to a lack of organisers.
Thankfully, a group led by chairman Graham Palmer eventually came forward to produce another successful carnival of music, art and culture, held in September.
