Lindsay Mitchell

It is with great sadness that we have to record the death of Lindsay Mitchell. He was at Culham from 1955 till 1957 and a member of the Culham College Association Council for over 50 years.

Lindsay was a gentleman who embodied everything that was good about Culham. His gentle charm and warm smile were always displayed as he served the Culham College Association as treasurer and later as he managed the Culham College Shop.

Lindsay's funeral will take place at 11.30 on Tuesday, February 13th at St Barnabas's Church, 200 Reservoir Road, Tuffley, Gloucester GL4 6SB

Provisional date for next reunion

The provisional date for our next reunion is SATURDAY 7th JULY.

The format will probably be an amalgam of the informal Summer Reunion style with an AGM and Service slotted into the day.  Hopefully the Europa School will soon be in a legal position to welcome us, as they have already done informally.

Newsletter scheduled for early March

Our first Newsletter is scheduled for early March. Nigel Spencer would appreciate receiving all items of news, articles of interest, pictures, and details of any informal reunions round the country. 

Called to serve the Queen

Culham College Society Vice-chairperson, Nigel Spencer MBE, has been chosen as a Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Essex.

Nigel said the primary focus of his Deputy Lord Lieutenancy will be to salute the successes and recognise the challenges experienced by young people in Essex, as they develop in a multi-cultural 21st century.

Lord Lieutenants are the Queen’s personal representatives in a county or area - their prime duty is to uphold the dignity of the Crown.

Honoured by the Queen

Karen Riley (nee Simpson) was invested with an OBE by the Queen at Buckingham Palace on 13 October 2017. Karen's award was announced in Queen's Birthday Honours List in recognition for her work and years of service in special and, latterly, in deaf education

A new Society opened . . . 

as the Culham College Association has closed, 

The mission of the Culham College Society is, in a spirit of openness and transparency, to promote fellowship among members of Greater Culham by maintaining contact amongst, and encouraging gatherings of, Culhamites. It will do this by:-

  • encouraging and promoting local, regional, year group, and interest group reunions and meetings;
  • organising general reunions;
  • providing news of Greater Culham through the maintenance of a website and the publication of electronic and hard copy newsletters and magazines;
  • and any other means which the Committee deems appropriate.

Membership of the Society is open to all former members of the College and the Practising School and their families. 

At its inaugural meeting on 13 May 2017 a constitution for the new Culham College Society was approved and office bearers and committee appointed.
