I was delighted to read in a local paper about the success of our Royston Picture Palace the community cinema based in the newly renovated Town Hall. The Picture Palace shows newly released films and is extremely popular. Christine and I enjoyed seeing “Saving Mr Banks” there recently. It is jointly funded by the local group Royston First and Royston Town Council but its operation is due to a dedicated team of volunteers. To cater for the cinema’s growing popularity more volunteers will be needed and those that are interested can register their interest at http://www.roystonpicturepalace.org.uk. I think this local institution is a great asset to the community and I encourage those who wish to assist with the scheme to register as a volunteer as soon as possible.
