We are looking forward to this year’s Somerville Association AGM and Spring Meeting (previously the “Winter Meeting”), which will take place on Saturday 14th March.
The AGM begins at 2:15pm in Flora Anderson Hall, and will include updates from the Principal, Baroness Jan Royall, and the President of the Somerville Association, Baroness Alison Wolf. The AGM is only for Somervillians.
The Spring Meeting begins at 2:45pm, also in Flora Anderson Hall. This year’s guest speaker will be doctor and television presenter Dr Xand van Tulleken (Physiological Sciences, 1996). Both Somervillians and non-Somervillians are welcome.
The AGM and Spring Meeting will be followed by tea, coffee, and biscuits in the Brittain-Williams Room (adjoining). The charge for the meeting is £15, or £10 for recent graduates (matriculation year 2011 or later).
In addition, a light luncheon (soup, sandwiches, fruit salad, and a glass of wine) is available before the meeting, from 1pm, in the Margaret Thatcher Centre. The charge for the luncheon is £15.
