Royston Open Secrets in the Heath impressed once again, with everything from a dog show, to barbecue, music, and a chance to try out Segways.

Founder and chairman of the volunteer committee, Linda Turner said: “I am overwhelmed by the positive feedback we’ve received – it’s fantastic. Without the generosity of our sponsors and volunteers, the event wouldn’t take place. Everyone had a brilliant time. It was just amazing to see so many people on the Heath relaxing in the warm weather and enjoying themselves.”

A best dressed stand competition was won by Kenia Hatfield, of September Flowers based in Jepps Courtyard, and runner-up was craft shop owner Laura Whitford, who said: “It was the perfect opportunity to spread the word about my shop No.3 and also to network with other local businesses and organisations.”

Julie Emmerson also had a stand for her charity The Nicola Emmerson Trust, and said: “The weather was great and it was the busiest I’ve ever seen it, there were lots of exciting stands.
