Lovely to See an OV

As we make cautious and tiny steps towards welcoming visitors back to King’s it was such a delight for us to introduce John Potter (Cl 55-62) to our newest team member, Amanda, and also to Headmaster, Gareth Doodes. John is seen here with Liz Elliott, Development Director, on the ground floor of Hostel House, which is where the School’s administration offices and meeting rooms are now housed.

John is Treasurer of the OV Committee and he talked with us about the donations made by the Club to the School. We also discussed the Vigornian magazine because the Committee is involved with administering the annual subscription renewals by OVs. The move to digital format for the magazine has proved to be very popular amongst OVs and makes the magazine accessible to a wider audience (you can access last year’s magazine here).

John and his wife, Marilyn, are both members of our 1541 Society and we are very much looking forward to welcoming them both back more formally to events starting later this term. It will be such a pleasure for the Development & Alumni Relations team to start hosting events for OVs and others in the King’s family and John remembers fondly our impressive 475th anniversary OV reunion dinner in Worcester Cathedral in 2017.
