Can You Help with a Date? 

Syston History Society are working on a book about Syston in the 20th century and need to know when the Merton School was opened.

Can any reader tell us this?

We have asked at the school just as the restrictions were announced last year, but no-one could tell us.  So maybe one of the Syston Town News’ readers can help.

Please let the editor know, either by tel: 0116 269 3221 or email:
And if you have an anecdote about the school, maybe you might write that up for us too.
