Newly elected chairman of the council Jean Green will work throughout the year to raise money for her chosen charity, the North Hertfordshire and Stevenage branch of Parkinson's UK.

She said: "I have chosen to raise money for Parkinson's UK as my husband suffered with this terrible disease.

"The branch gives residents of Royston and District who are suffering with Parkinson's new communal activities and a place to make new like-minded friends."
