On Friday 20th April, 90 members of the Syston community from businesses, individuals and charities were invited by Councillor Howard Midgley, Chairman of Syston Town Council, to join him for the annual Civic Reception held in the Community Centre, School Street.

Some Syston Town Councillors attended, along with the Mayor and Mayoress of Charnwood Mr Bernard Burr and his wife Rose, along with Mrs Jacki Dickinson Chairman of Leicestershire County Council and her consort Vicky Thornton, The Right Honorable Stephen Dorrell MP who all enjoyed a very pleasant evening chatting with everyone. The atmosphere was enhanced by flute duet ‘Flutique’ Dana Morgan and Anna-Maria Moore. A lovely buffet was provided as well as a raffle with some amazing prizes.

Everyone who attended said that it had been a very enjoyable and relaxed evening and what a wonderful way to thank people who are all working for the benefit of the residents of Syston.

Thank you to the Town Manager Allan Clarke and his staff for all the hard work they put in for the evening. It was much appreciated by all who attended.
