EVERY Tom, Dick, and Harry has an awards scheme these days, so here is mine for Royston 2008, which I have called The Zambos. The Most Brilliant Administration of Year goes to North Herts District Council for their sterling work with the leisure centre.

The Most Brilliant Administration of Year goes to North Herts District Council for their sterling work with the leisure centre.
They managed to end the bus service prematurely at the A10 roundabout, so the elderly people who wish to go swimming have to walk half-a-mile to get to the pool.
They turned down approximately £40,000 from Gordon Brown, so that pensioners have to pay.
And they gave management of the facility to a private company so that it becomes a business rather than a service.
They have not yet audited the number of people using it, and the coffee machine costs 70p when everywhere else it is 20p. Well done!
The Duke of Wellington award for close-run thing goes to Royston First for their successful Bid. Spend it wisely gentlemen.
Woman of the year is Nikki Wilson for an enthusiasm in fund raising, keeping me on my toes, and climbing the three peaks of Great Britain.
Man of the Year is Alfie Evans, ex-para, who is currently recovering from a triple by-pass and valve replacement in critical care at Papworth Hospital. All down the pub miss you Alf, get well soon.
Happy new year to all Crow readers,
Gresley Lodge, Old North Road,
