Presentation at St CeciliasOn the 11th December 2007, Phil Hope the MP for Corby kindly presented a cheque on behalf of The Old Wandsworthians’ Memorial Trust Fund to Jeffrey Risbridger (Headmaster) and William Dyson and Joanne Omidvaran of St Cecilia’s School Sutherland Grove.

The donation will be used to initiate a fund in the name of H. Raymond King which will hopefully perpetuate the standards set by HRK throughout his lifetime.

On the social side Phil gave the group a guided tour of the House of Commons and the Lords, and explained what was meant by “in the bag” and why nervous MP’s due to speak in the chamber ran their hand over the polished toe of Winston Churcill’s statue before entering. He also explained why a deep red curtain had been hung around the balcony area of the Lords on the advent of the mini-skirt in the 1960’s.
