Royston’s Fish Hill Square played host to the annual Rudolph’s Christmas Trail last Saturday, which saw participants hunting shop windows for all 10 of Santa’s companions.

The event was organised and hosted by Royston First – an organisation funded collectively by the town’s businesses – and saw participants search high and low for the reindeer in shop fronts around the square, before collecting an early Christmas present from none other than Father Christmas himself.

Throughout the day the children could also try their hand at free festive crafting activities, including Christmas cracker making.

Royston’s town manager Geraint Burnell said the day “was a truly joyous event – with much fun had by both the children and volunteers”, many of which were part of the local PTA.
