THREE Royston councillors visited Tannery Drift School to meet pupils and discuss the future of the town.
Cllr Fiona Hill, Chairman of North Herts District Council's Royston area committee, was joined by Cllr Doug Drake, from Hertfordshire County Council, and Cllr Lyndsay Davidson, of Royston Town Council.
Trudy Chapple from Tannery Drift School said: "The councillors met members of our school council, and explained about the different levels of council, and about who has responsibility for the various services.
"Then they asked the pupils about what they liked and disliked about Royston, and what sort of facilities they would like to see in the town."
Chief among pupils' concerns was the amount of rubbish in the town centre.
They also expressed worries about older children hanging around in Royston's playgrounds.
