We're delighted to have the Old Cytringanians using the Museum's Community corner this month- September 2013. Don't miss it, the display changes over to our next installment at the end of the month! http://www.kettering.gov.uk/info/100009/leisure_and_culture/1519/community_corner

Am I really the first former pupil to contribute?

I was a member of the Satellite Tracking Group run by Geoff Perry and witnessed the decline of the Grammar School after it’s conversion to a ‘Comprehensive’ one. A very sad loss to the town. The Rothwell Road school building has been demolished as have the Gold Street and Windmill Avenue ones. There was, apparently, even a threat to demolish the Bowling Green Road building?
