Welcome to the sixth edition of Nautilus

This term we welcomed our new College President, Jackie Ashley, who also attended our first committee meeting of the year.  Judith Roberts and I met with Jackie to find out what plans she has for her term as President. 

I hope that you are enjoying our online newsletter. In this edition you will see, among other things, a report of our recent alumnae London trips: a fascinating visit to the Houses of Parliament and our fantastic backstage tour of The Mousetrap. We do hope to continue to meet our alumnae friends at future events, so keep an eye on our Events Listings and Dates for Your Diary. We have some exciting plans in the pipeline for the coming year. We will let you have details in due course, either in Nautilus or by special email invitations.

Over the coming year, the committee and I will be working hard to strengthen our links with current students and Alumnae.

We look forward to meeting you at one of our events, at Formal Hall or at the Alumnae weekend next September.
