Radley Long Service Awards

Radley ‘Long Service Awards’: Coffee Shop, Tuesday, June 14th

On the afternoon of Tuesday June 14th, there was a special event held in the Coffee Shop, to celebrate the Long Service of ten members of the College community: each of whom have completed over twenty years’ service.

Radley’s Bursar, Andrew Ashton, gave a speech of thanks to these individuals and the members of staff and boys assembled for the tea to mark the occasion.  As Andrew Ashton observed: “It is the long service and commitment of many Radley staff that goes towards making Radley such a special place. In 20 years, you have all served three Wardens and overseen probably around 2,500 boys conduct a safe passage through their formative years at the College and on to the world beyond - with many now making terrific contributions to the world at large. You have all played a part in that.”

Each member of staff selected a gift to commemorate their service and the Bursar went on to present a bottle of Champagne and offer the College’s profound thanks to all of the following people:

From the Housekeeping team:

Anna Gomersall (C Social, and formerly in the Medical Centre)

Lal Norris (D Social)

Sue Oram (H Social, and before that in A Social)

Shirley Davis (A Social)

Chrissie Woods (Sports Centre and before that in D Social)

(also, not present: Anne-Mare Battersby, who works in the Music Department)

From the Music Department:

Gayle Gunningham

The College Archivist:

Clare Sargent (not present)

From the Accounts team:

From the IT Department:

The Bursar made special reference to Pat Clarke who was also at the event.  Pat joined Radley College as a Groundsman in 1966.  Not wishing to retire fully yet, Pat will be reducing his workload from full time to part time at the end of this term.
