A tidy team is getting stuck in to a mission to improve the appearance of Royston High Street.
The Town Centre Working Party was formed following the ‘Big Town Tidy Up’ by the Royston in Bloom committee in 2013 which highlighted areas of the town centre looking tired and in need of improvement.
Veolia’s street cleansing team plan to work closely with owners and landlords to clean the private and public land in the town centre.
The district council has agreed to fund the painting of benches, signposts, street bins and hanging basket posts, while more cigarette bins will be installed in the spring.
Councillor Peter Burt, responsible for waste recycling and the environment at the district council, said: “This is a great example of how working together can make a big impact on the environment for the community.
