Thank you...We've shut the green door on the office and completed post-summer school tasks. So some final thanks are in order ...
Thank you to those that took the time to share their memories online and special thanks to Katie Weston who led on the Twitter account and made the Storify for us. Thank you also to the prefects who helped tutors and fellow students throughout the week and organised the excerpts from each class which will be published in The Journal Spring issue (J257).
Thank you also to the many volunteers (and spouses) who helped make the event happen and kept it on track - from stewards to cake makers, from auction, fashion show and trade fair crews to speakers, from ticket sellers to clean up crews with special thanks to the team who helped organise both before and at summer school. Big thanks also to the many lovely students and their talented tutors. We have absorbed your feedback and passed this on to the 2017 team.
