Inconsiderate Car Parking

Dear Editor

I am writing to you in a hope that you can get a message out to all those inconsiderate drivers who are parking on Millers Close, Syston. Some cars are being left overnight and even over the weekend, presumably because they don’t want to pay the parking charge at the railway station.

The Police, and Syston and Charnwood Borough Council have been informed, but without putting double yellow lines, which would prevent the residents visitors as well as these inconsiderate drivers from parking, they are limited as to what action they can take.

We are therefore requesting directly to those individuals to be considerate when parking in our street, and ask how they would feel if people parked on their street without consideration.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely
R Beeton
Millers Close resident


Syston Badminton Club

Dear Editor

I am writing to ask if you could print the following notice as sadly our club has had to close.

It is with much regret as the club has been at the school since it opened over 30 years ago. This is due to a number of factors including a fall in membership, the limited number of weeks available to us and an increase in the costs.

Thanks to all members past and present, I hope you all keep on playing badminton….somewhere.

Many thanks,

E. Trewick


Dear Editor
On behalf of my family, I would like to congratulate the town and the cemetery officers for their very well kept cemetery.
We visited last week on a family history search and were impressed by the helpfulness of the staff and the amount of information that was kept by them.
Please pass on our thanks to them.
Karen Britton and family.
My father Edward Britton lived in Goodes Avenue in the late 1930s and 1940s before moving to Kent and would be interested to know if there is anyone still in Syston who remembers him/his family from back then.

If you do remember Edward or his family, please get in touch will us here at Stn and we will pass on your details.
