MORE of the town's anglers have been made happy after a £1,000 delivery to help restocking levels in a canal. 

The Royston Canal Club took delivery of fish earlier in December. 

John Clare from the club said it had been made possible with a £500 grant from Monckton Coke and Chemical Company.

"This is the second season the coking plant has given a grant to help the restocking levels in the canal," he added.

"Tench, crucian carp and barbel were introduced into both sides of the canal.

"Last year's similar stocking showed up really well in this summer's catches and the club is looking forward to another successful season."

Permits for next season will be available from January 1.
