It was a chance for local businesses to show off their products, while families enjoyed a day out in the sun with heaps of entertainment.
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.
“Once again Linda Turner and the Royston Open Secrets 2016 organisers did an amazing job.”
Toby Snowdon, owner of The Heath cafe said: “Once again the weather was kind. Everyone enjoyed a fantastic day relaxing at the event which was wonderfully organised by Linda and her hardworking team.”
Ray Mundan from Royston Rotary Club organised a historic vehicle show, with Darren Bull and Sharon Bavister of the Royston Modified Car Club organising a line-up of more than 150 cars and motorcycles.
