Tying in with Small Business Saturday, more than 40 stall holders set up shop on the High Street, to encourage customers to shop locally.

Festive revellers were treated to performances from Royston Town Band, the Steel Band and Greneway School Choir.

At 2:30pm children were entertained by Christmas favourite the Punch and Judy show.

Santa pitched up in his grotto for the day’s festivities and a children’s roundabout was open as part of the entertainment.
