FIVE people were recognised last night (Thursday) for their role in the community.

They each received a Community Award from the Mayor of Royston, Cllr Peter Lill, during the town annual meeting in Royston Town Hall.

Three of the awards were given to people who had played a role in the running of the Royston and District Museum during the past years.

They went to Peter Ketteringham, a trustee of the museum, Shirley Keith Williams and Christine Whitbourn, both of whom have been volunteers at the museum for many years.
