MP in grammar school tribute

Have your say

SOUTH Holland and The Deepings MP John Hayes wants planning permission to put a plaque on his home to commemorate the original site of Moulton Grammar School.

Wording on the plaque – which will measure 18 inches across – will be: “Harrox House, site of Moulton Grammar School (1562-1939), Founded by John Harrox (died 1561).”

Mr Hayes hopes the plaque can be unveiled in time for The Old Moultonians’ lunch, which will mark the 450th anniversary of the school’s foundation in mid-June.

The MP has consulted neighbours and the parish council chairman, who support the plan.

A decision on planning consent will be made by South Holland District Council.
