July is the next stop in The Crow’s year review

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.

July

8 – The Royston branch of the Royal British Legion had to raise £20,000 to save its premises, or face closure.

The Mill Road building had problems with a rotting floor, with money desperately needed to have it replaced before Remembrance Sunday.

Thankfully the money was donated, thanks largely to the Brian Leslie Racher Trust, and the legion was ready for its biggest day of the year.

Also this month
