A HOST of parties joined together to hold a reassuring event in Royston.
Market Place turned into a hive of activity when the North Herts Community Reassurance Event came to town.
Among the organisations involved were North Herts District Council (NHDC), Herts Fire and Rescue Service, Herts Police, Herts County Council Trading Standards and North Hertfordshire Homes.
The event was held to offer people advice on how to improve their safety both in and outside their homes.
Police offered advice on staying safe, and offered to mark personal belongings such as bikes, laptops and mobile phones.
