Celebrating the 2018 Sporting Successes of Team Surrey

President of the University of Surrey Students’ Union, Saskia Cochrane, kindly invited me to join the new Mayor of Guildford, Mike Parsons, at the Colours Ball last night. In spite of being in post for only a matter of days, and with an early morning appointment rapidly followed by their Civic Service at 11.30 today, Mike and Jean did not hesitate in supporting the 900 strong students gathered for the Awards. Everyone at the University greatly values such recognition from Guildford Borough Council. Student Union VPs Ali and Helena (together with the superb behind-the-scenes team) deserve great credit for organising such a mammoth event!
