The first town-wide event promoting greener living took place at the weekend. 

Royston Environmental Group organised the Sustain-Ability 2021 event, and contributions came from the Conservators of Therfield Heath, Wombles of Royston, and Tesco Community Garden project - which helps young people understand where their food comes from and more.
