Westminster College reunion

September 2019

Westminster reunion

"Old Ws" - Westminster College alumni - celebrated 60 years since the college moved from London to Harcourt Hill.

Sylvia Cliff, Chair of the Westminster Society, reports:

On 7-8th September, 84 alumni of Westminster College met on the Harcourt Hill campus. They ranged from those who left in 1957 to some who left in 1981.

2019 saw several landmarks in the history of Westminster which we remembered; 60 years ago the college moved from Horseferry Road in London and women were admitted; 50 years ago the first B Ed was awarded. Other groups of friends celebrated 50 or 40 years ‘in’ or ‘out’. Cakes were cut and prosecco drunk.

After supper we were entertained by The Tarriers; sounds of the sixties by a group who met and performed together at Westminster in the 1960s and who continue to play together. Sunday saw the AGM of the Westminster Society followed by a service in the Chapel.

The whole weekend was marked by a happy buzz of conversation as reminiscences were exchanged, old friendships renewed and new ones formed.
