IN reply to a report in The Crow (September 13), we were disappointed to see the comments of Cllr Tony Hunter, made regarding the Mayor of Royston's Charity Golf Day.

He claims that we were one of the main sponsors of this event.

We have at no time been a sponsor.

We have in the past offered the event a donation as a ­raffle prize over and above the amount we would ­normally give to any single organisation as we have a limited local community budget, which supports schools, playgroups, animal welfare organisations, churches, and local events which benefit the town.

Tesco Royston is one of the major retailers in the area.

We have been supporting the town with events such as the Pink Ribbon Run/Walk, the Royston Arts Festival, the Rotary Club of Royston's Kite Festival, the Wood Green Animal Shelter, and as part of the Royston and District Chamber of Commerce, we have agreed to a banner site advertising local events to gain support for the town.

We are sorry that we could not support Cllr Hunter on this occasion, but we look forward to helping local events in the future.
