GEORGE Freeman MP was guest speaker at our 105th Old Eleans’ Club Dinner on the evening of October 12th.
Mr Freeman is a British Conservative Party politician who has served as Member of Parliament for Mid Norfolk since 2010.
The Black Tie Dinner took place in our beautiful Monastic Barn and, as ever, was a wonderful opportunity to celebrate all that is great about King’s Ely.
Mark Wilkinson was thanked for his service as Club President for the last two years and Marc Hawes was formally welcomed as the new President.
Marc, who was a pupil at King’s Ely from Reception right the way through to Year 13 (1971-1985), has been part of the Old Eleans’ Club Committee since 2011.
Marc started working at King’s Ely in 1997 as Head of Computing and as a Tutor in Osmond House. He has been Assistant Housemaster of Osmond House since 2015 and is Director of ICT Systems and Head of ICT and Computing at King’s Ely Senior.
Marc’s two children, Felix and Tessa, have both been students at King’s Ely since joining King’s Ely Acremont in Reception.
Four Honorary Old Eleans were also announced on the evening in recognition of their loyal service to the school – Liz Knibb, Graham Griggs, Celia Burgess and Shirley Jolly!
