    Where do you think you are?

    The “Where Do You Think You Are? exhibition, produced by colleagues from the John Innes Society, has now been installed at Merton Heritage Centre and will be on show until 21 October. The material was recently displayed at a special Merton Park event in early September and proved extremely popular. A lot of work has gone into researching the exhibition, so if you missed it, or would like a second opportunity to see the display, please pay us a visit.
