2022 News Highlights


So, after being in my role for over a year – one year, three months, and three days to be precise

I finally know everything there is to know about being Homerton’s Principal. Well, no, not quite!

Ido now know what most of the College and University acronyms mean: UTOs (University Teaching Officers), CTOs (College Teaching Officers), COG (College Officers’ Group) and HUS (Homerton Union of Students). I know that all Cambridge University May Balls, including our own, are in fact in June. Equally our Christmas dinner for students is in November. Traditions, eh!

Over the past year I pride myself in knowing the vast majority of first names of our 200+ plus staff, including more than a few other Simons, and I broadly understand the reason for the 18 or so College committees which help keep this wonderful place running. Although I’ve got a feeling that some may merge into others or be dropped completely.

But the real beauty about this role is that it really isn’t a fixed role, it’s ever-changing, and in truth, no one day ever looks the same.

This is a high-pressure job, but I never thought I would love this role so much. I mean, I loved my last high-pressure role as head of Operation

David Johnson

Black Vote, but that was with many more negative challenges, such as dealing with deaths in police custody, school exclusion, and a shocking immigration policy. It’s difficult to love that part of a campaigner’s work.

In contrast, here at Homerton, alongside making sure everything is running smoothly (well, relatively smoothly at least), the greatest part of this job is, in no small measure, to encourage and inspire some of the brightest, most creative and loveliest students on the planet. I also get to listen to and challenge the extremely bright research fellows and ask them about, for example, dark matter and why we should care about it. Or other exciting conversations around outreach, and how we can forge a partnership between Homerton, East London – where we came from 250 years ago –and Homerton, Cambridge. Watch this space.

Part of my role is also to help sew a golden thread between Homerton’s past and present

that helps build a brighter future. For example, this past year I spent two days listening to Homerton alumni, mainly women, about how their lives were transformed here, and how they went on to transform the lives of thousands of the students they taught after leaving Homerton. Many went on to run schools. These are several generations of women who broke glass ceilings wherever they went, and I’m determined to tell their stories not just to empower a new cohort of women today, but also young men too . My default line, here, is to empower this generation to feel they too can change the world in many positive ways, much like these women did.

So, in this role as Principal, you simply can never know everything because there’s so much unexplored, and along with scoping out new and exciting projects, it often feels like every day is a learning day.

I love that! n

s I wrote last year’s report, we were coming up to Christmas 2021 and COVID was beginning to rise exponentially again, ruining many festive plans for a second year. By early in 2022 we were much more back to normal in terms of students in residence, but, looking back at my calendar, I was once again meeting people on Zoom for most of the day, albeit mainly from my office rather than from home.

During Lent we had a number of students personally affected by the invasion of Ukraine, and put into traumatic situations with fear for the safety of loved ones and more practical difficulties of funds frozen or severed communications. Those affected were not all Ukrainian nationals – it was clear that there were also students from the UK and elsewhere with family connections on one or both sides of the conflict, and all we could do was to offer support in any way we could.

In early March the College community was devastated by the tragic death of a much-loved undergraduate, and this event still casts a shadow of sadness over the College, for both staff and students. This was yet another blow to the cohort who arrived in Cambridge in the chaos of teacher assessed grades, and suffered the infamous ‘West House Lockdown’ in 2020.

Our spectacular new dining hall and Buttery were opened for the Easter Term – students quickly colonised the new Buttery as a favourite working space. The focus of the College moved westward with the new buildings, and the Cavendish buildings now seem a bit of a

Abackwater. We are working on repurposing the Great Hall as a venue for performance and social events, and in Michaelmas 2022 the old Buttery was opened as a spacious Junior Common Room and an HQ for HUS – a great success as a low key socialising and study space.

Many exams returned to their pre-pandemic formats in 2022, and on the whole our students did rather well. During the 2021–22 academic year we had around three times as many intermissions as usual, as students struggled with the legacy of fragmented learning and a life that did not measure up to the normal ‘Cambridge Experience’ in so many ways.

The year ended with the fun of May Week, and General Admission (graduation) almost back to normal. During the year there have been several extra ‘catch-up’ Congregations for graduands at every level who missed out during COVID, and these have been much enjoyed.

With all the difficulties society is facing, the university and colleges, Homerton included, are putting much greater stress on the importance of wellbeing. We certainly notice that perfectionism is rife, leading to anxiety and paralysis, and I am often in the slightly odd situation of trying to persuade students to lower their standards. Although we have a strong pastoral structure of the College, and have an excellent and expanded team of undergraduate and postgraduate Tutors, we have also recently appointed a Wellbeing Coordinator, who is already making an impact with her focus on the Wellbeing of both students and staff n

his is my first report as Bursar for Homerton’s Annual Review. I joined the College in September 2022 and received the most wonderful welcome. I feel privileged to have joined a company of such warm, friendly and interesting people and I’m enjoying settling in very much.

I’ve had quite a varied career so far. My initial degree was in marine biology and in my

Ttwenties I spent five years living and working in Antarctica with British Antarctic Survey, which coincidentally has its headquarters in Cambridge. My interest in the oceans developed into an interest in conservation, and in 2012 I became Executive Secretary to the International Whaling Commission and then a senior civil servant with the UK government responsible for marine environment. These two roles gave rise to a fascination with diplomacy, collective decision making as well as organizational strategy and finance. I studied for

an MBA during this period and am delighted to now be using those skills at Homerton.

This has been a remarkable year for the College. Perhaps the biggest landmark was the completion of our new dining hall, buttery and servery area in April 2022. The hall is stunning and its architecture a credit to its designers, Feilden Fowles Architects. External commendation has been rapid, with the Hall winning three Wood Awards (for buildings constructed largely from timber), including Gold award for best overall project from over 200 entries. We are entered into other competitions over the coming 12 months so watch this space.

We completed several other construction projects during the year as well. North Wing, with its new state of the art auditorium has been an instant hit for holding seminars and the beautifully appointed bedrooms above are a bonus for conference guests.

Looking ahead, one of the College’s next projects will be to replace the Porters’ Lodge. In May this year, we received full planning permission to proceed with a new construction located between the Mary Allan Building and Hills Road. Using a beautiful and striking design by Alison Brooks Architects, the new Lodge uses a pavilion theme, with design elements drawn from other architectural features on Homerton’s campus. It will provide a welcoming and

functional Porters’ Lodge, and also provide a statement gateway to Homerton’s campus.

From a financial perspective this has been a second difficult year for the college. Governing Body received and approved the accounts on 2 December 2022 and the headline message is an operating deficit of £2.6million. This, in part, reflects another year impacted by Covid as we lost much of the summer 2021 conference trade. We are making great strides in re-building the conference business and bookings for the current Christmas period, as well as summer 2023, are already looking very positive. We continue to maintain a tight control on costs and we are actively investing in our fundraising department. The full annual report and accounts are available on the College’s website.

In closing, I would like to say a huge thank you to Deborah Griffin, Homerton’s Bursar from 2012 to 2022. Deborah oversaw a huge expansion in Homerton’s campus and many of the landmark achievements, including the new Dining Hall, the beautifully refurbished Griffin Bar, the sports grounds and the new student accommodation can all be traced back to Deborah’s drive and determination. Deborah re-joined the College as an Emeritus Fellow and she is spending much of her time driving forward women’s rugby n



fter letting the snow rather than the dust settle at the end of the year, it seems an appropriate time to reflect on 2022 and look forward to new opportunities in 2023.

The start of Michaelmas term saw the library adjusting to the new challenges and opportunities of welcoming students who were unfamiliar with library services and the concept of a friendly library team. As well as online introductions to the library prior to their arrival in Cambridge, in person lectures and subject specific inductions allowed all undergraduate and postgraduate students to recognise members of the library team and the support they could provide as they navigated new library services and facilities. The library team has become well versed in the intricacies of subject specific referencing after handling a constant stream of email enquiries from students. We are so very happy to help!

During October, tours of the University Library were organised in conjunction with the UL Reader Services Team and the Homerton HUS team. These bespoke welcome tours were run for any Homerton student who wanted to venture to the University Library but were anxious about going alone. I am pleased to say that both tours were fully booked, and students spoke highly of the UL staff who answered all their questions and put them at ease. Further tours are planned in Lent term to meet the demand from students.

We gathered at the end of May to say farewell to our Librarian Liz Osman as she began a new role at the University Library, after ten years’ service at Homerton. As the longest serving member of the library team and a well-loved member of staff, the Combination

Aroom was full of Fellows and staff who wanted to wish her well. We are so happy that she has recently been sworn in as an Associate Fellow in recognition of her leadership whilst at Homerton. I feel privileged to have been recruited to the position of Librarian and look forward to taking a more strategic role in the continued provision of excellent user focused library services as well as creation of new opportunities for our special children’s literature collection.

Throughout Michaelmas term, the library team at Homerton College have been encouraging students from the MPhil in Critical Approaches to Children’s Literature to access and handle primary source material from Homerton’s special collection of rare children’s literature. Developed by Homerton Fellow, Professor Zoe Jaques, a new assignment encourages students to explore historical and bibliographical approaches to children’s texts and cultures by visiting and handling historical collections. It is hoped that Homerton’s special collection will play a significant role in their research into the history of children’s literature and childhood.

In October, I held a lecture with the MPhil class to consider practical handling of fragile primary source material and visiting etiquette for research libraries and archives. An assignment-specific calendar was created so that students could book two-hour consultation sessions throughout the term and request material in advance of their visit. At each session, James Brigden, Rare Books Cataloguer, provided invaluable insights into potential areas of investigation, while the whole team has guided students to search the catalogue independently and provided book handling advice.

It has been an exciting opportunity to highlight some of the most exciting areas of our rare book collection. These include international


Victorian chapbooks; and the Lealan Collection of approximately 7,500 boys’ and girls’ annuals from 1845 to the early 2000s. A significant recent acquisition is a rare copy of Jenny Lives with Eric and Martin, a picture book from the early 1980s associated with British LGBTQ+ history. As ever, we are also grateful for our recent donations from alumni who have contributed greatly to the development of our children’s literature collection over the years.

Recently, Homerton College archive has acquired a collection of documents, photographs, memoir albums and a diary that belonged to two former Homerton students, sisters Emma (1900–1902) and Alice Johnson (1909–1911).

Emma, first on the left, is pictured here in 1902 with a group of her close friends – a “College Family”. The second photo was taken forty years later during their reunion. Emma kept a diary in 1902, which begins with her return to Cambridge

after Christmas, feeling “Very Miserable”. The diary gives a brief description of her life as a student: school practice, college dinners in Great Hall, occasional food poisonings, trips to town and visits to the Fitzwilliam Museum and Trinity chapel, writing letters and mending clothes in the evening by candlelight. Emma’s diary gives a strong sense of what the student college life would have been like at the beginning of the 20th century, the importance of close friendships, altogether, not too different to student experience today.

As we look forward to 2023, we are excited at the prospect of welcoming another addition to the team as we will interview for the position of Deputy Librarian. With exam term fast approaching, we look forward to developing our wellbeing and life skills collection with Grace Hernandez, the new Wellbeing Coordinator at Homerton, continuing to place the wellbeing of staff and students as central to our development of new services within the library n

Kate Pretty Lecture 2022

Vice-Chancellor Professor Stephen J Toope delivered the fifth annual Kate Pretty Lecture in June, in the Great Hall and to an international online audience.

The lecture honours former Principal Dr Kate Pretty CBE, who was in attendance, and who Professor Toope quoted with some emotion in a reference to “the centuries old process: the transference of wonder into knowledge – and knowledge into wonder.”

In what was his final formal speaking engagement before stepping down at the end of the summer, Professor Toope addressed the subject “University Matters? The University of Cambridge in an increasingly complex world”. He emphasised the University’s focus on an

international outlook, expanding inclusivity and as a beacon for excellence, values which resonate strongly with Homerton’s own.

Professor Toope explored the tumultuous global changes which have taken place in the five years since he took office, acknowledging that: “We are still reeling, collectively, from what I would characterise as truly paradigm-shifting events, the full consequences of which we have yet to understand.”

Against that backdrop, he interrogated what he termed “three other areas of profound and accelerated change over the past five years”: public expectations of universities; the international landscape post-Brexit; and the surrounding culture.

Unpacking the increasing tendency for universities to be expected to deliver ‘value for money’, Professor Toope said:

“Of course students and their families care deeply about post-graduation prospects and opportunities, and it is right that we offer quality

Professor Stephen J Toope with Dr Kate Pretty David Johnson David Johnson

education. But a university education is not a transaction. A university education should be about preparing students for careers, and for contributing to society. A university education should be about students’ engagement with established knowledge and with new ideas. A university education should be an enlarging and enriching experience, an opening of eyes and minds to the world’s complexity, to the world’s beauty, and even to the world’s horrors.”

Reflecting on Cambridge’s global outlook, and the impact of Brexit on Britain’s participation in international research, the Vice-Chancellor said:

“A time of global challenges is not the time to retreat into national pockets of academia. Instead, our universities should be doing what we do best – seeking solutions to vexing problems by working with partners around the globe.”

Professor Toope also examined the effect of what he described as the “explosive” combination of

the growth of identity politics in parallel with the advance of social media.

While Professor Toope did not shy away from the challenges and difficulties faced by Cambridge and the wider academic world over his tenure, he also stated that he was “incredibly gratified” by the achievements of the University over that period, from its response to climate change through the creation of Cambridge Zero, to the significant advances seen in widening access and participation.

Describing himself as “an inveterate optimist... absolutely convinced that our collegiate University is a force for good in this world,” the Vice-Chancellor ended by saying:

“Our collegiate University is always a work in progress – proud of its past but honouring its future. Never perfect, but always susceptible to improvement. Never finished, but always open to evolution. Because the world never stops changing. And as the world changes, so must Cambridge.”

Black History Month Dinner

Homerton College celebrated Black History Month in October and played host to the biggest gathering of Black students in the University’s history – over 200 –and brought 80 prominent Black guests from all over the country to meet them.

Co-hosted by Lord Woolley and by Jesse Panda, President of the Cambridge University African Caribbean Society, the event had a long waiting list. The 80 invited guests included Tunde Olanrewaju, UK head of McKinsey plc; Conservative MP Shaun Bailey; Gillian Joseph, Sky News presenter; Wayne Marshall OBE, distinguished organist; Leroy Logan MBE, founder of the Black Police Association; and Diane Abbott MP, who spoke about being told at school that she would “never amount to anything” yet found the courage to apply, successfully, to Cambridge and to go on to be the UK’s first Black woman MP. Guests were treated to a musical performance by a quartet from the all-BME Chineke! Orchestra, whose founder Chi-Chi Nwanoku CBE was in attendance.

Two special awards were presented. Sister Bernadette Chabongora was a Homerton student in the 1980s, and when she came to the College was slightly older than her cohort and already a nun in Holy Orders. She came from Zimbabwe to train as a teacher, and on her return rose both in the teaching profession and in the Church, to become National Chief Examiner and to help lead her convent through Covid-19. Sister Bernadette, tragically, died in May 2022, and her award was collected on her behalf by Sally Hyde Lomax, one of a group of Homertonian friends who had raised funds to support Sister Bernadette’s work. A lifetime achievement award went to Michael Eboda, creator 17 years ago of the Powerlist, which each year recognises 100 Black individuals, prominent in their fields. Presenting the award, Lord Woolley said “As the publisher of the Powerlist, Michael has never appeared in it – but his creation has done more than anything for the visibility of Black excellence in the UK”.

Farewell to Deborah

In September Homerton held a Garden Party to say goodbye to Bursar, Deborah Griffin OBE.

In the journey to full College status and beyond, Homerton has been hugely fortunate with its recent bursars, who have turned a financially precarious teacher-training college into a thriving ‘going concern’, in an environment that supports excellence to the standard required of a Cambridge College.

Deborah Griffin came to Homerton in 2012 and dedicated her energies to the College for ten years, retiring in October 2022. A chartered accountant with a background in consultancy and the hospitality industry, she brought to the College many useful skills and in particular was the perfect person to spearhead the vital development of Homerton’s conference business, which has given the College much of its financial flexibility.

In addition to her professional capabilities, Deborah has the word ‘rugby’ running through her like a stick of rock. She was among the organisers

of the first ever women’s World Cup. The year before she joined Homerton she was awarded an OBE for services to women’s rugby, and in 2014 she was the first woman to be elected as a board member of the RFU. She later joined the board of World Rugby, and the month after her retirement

Deborah Griffin Lord Woolley thanks Deborah Griffin at her farewell garden party

from the College she was inducted into the World Rugby Hall of Fame.

She was steely-eyed in her determination that students should be proud of their College, and let no opportunity go by to improve the facilities students enjoy in their time here.

Alumni coming back to Homerton in the last 20 years will have noticed the furious pace of building work that has accompanied our new status as a full Cambridge College. Even after the Royal Charter of 2010, a long list of new work has been found to be necessary to enable us to fully live up to that status, and the College is deeply indebted to Deborah for leading much of that long building campaign.

The huge residential and commercial development of ‘Homerton Gardens’ (on 3.5 acres of adjacent land purchased by the College) dominated Deborah’s early years at Homerton and brought a revenue stream that enabled future projects. Accommodation at Harrison House (completed in 2006) was insufficient for a growing community of postgraduates, and so Deborah led construction of a new block – twice the size of Harrison House – which became Morley House in 2016. Since then, the College has seldom been without a construction project.

Some are more visible than others: the glorious new Dining Hall and the Griffin Bar in the centre

of the College are hospitable and welcoming spaces, but just as important to the running of the College are the new buildings for the Gardens and Maintenance teams. And some are not visible at all: an array of twelve 150-metre ground-source heat pumps is hidden discreetly under the lawns.

Deborah was adamant that the point of investing in buildings was ultimately to invest in people, and thanks to her energies the College community enjoys many wonderful amenities unknown to the students of ten years ago.

Deborah was a hugely active member of College life, regularly participating in college events. As she leaves Homerton after 10 years of dedicated service, we are deeply grateful for all that she has done for the College.


New Dining Hall Wins Wood Award

Homerton College’s Dining Hall, designed by Feilden Fowles and built by Barnes Construction, has triumphed in the 2022 Wood Awards, winning the Gold Award in a field of 200 entrants.

Established in 1971, the Wood Awards is the UK’s premier competition for excellence in architecture and product design in wood. The awards recognise outstanding design, craftsmanship and installation. At the awards ceremony at the Carpenters’ Hall in London on 23 November 2022, the Homerton project won the ‘Education and Public Sector’ building category, and a Structural Award, and went on to win the Gold Award for the competition.

“Elegant and impressive, this dining hall celebrates the integrity and inherent beauty of its materials and craftsmanship, creating a space which is both inspiring and functional for students.” – Wood Awards nomination

Homerton’s dining hall and its associated buttery are bright, airy spaces by day, and transform into a ceremonial setting for formal evening meals. The hall itself uses long sweet chestnut glulam trusses, echoing the hammerbeam ceilings of a traditional hall in a slender and elegant modern form. The trusses are held together by wooden pegs: the compressive strength of these cross-beams is used to transfer the heavy weight of the butterfly roof to the vertical columns each side.

Charter Dinner 2022

The last Charter Dinner held at Homerton was held literally days before the world locked down in 2020 so it was a pleasure to resume the occasion in the new Dining Hall in June this year. Both Theresa May MP and Diane Abbott MP spoke to a gathering of over 200 guests from Cambridge, the UK and beyond.

Students from Ukraine

Earlier this year Homerton became home to 20 students from Kharkiv National Medical University, who were brought to Cambridge for a bespoke programme of clinical placements, to help continue their studies.

While full-time Cambridge medical students were on their summer break, Cambridge University’s School of Clinical Medicine created a seven-week programme for the displaced Ukrainians, focusing on core medicine, surgery and a specialism of the students’ choice. The course included lectures, observation and practical experience and was funded by a very generous anonymous donation.

Homerton College was delighted to be able to support the initiative by providing the students with a home base in Cambridge, giving them accommodation, library access, catering, and a

quiet campus to bond as a group and to meet other Homerton students.

The visiting students were supplied with prepaid cards allowing them to buy their meals in the College dining hall and were accommodated in en-suite student rooms. While the training programme meant they had had a full study timetable, they enjoyed a taste of collegiate life, including two postgraduate Formal Halls attended by students and Fellows.

Their stay at Homerton was organised by Postgraduate Tutor Dr Melanie Keene, who said, “We’ve really enjoyed getting to know our visitors: they’ve been a lively presence in College. They have all relished the opportunities their clinical placements have provided for hands-on medical work, whether on ward rounds, in surgery, and in their various specialities.”

HUS President’s Report


Charter Choir of Homerton College


Robin Webber, President of the Homerton Union of Students

ent Term 2022 saw the further easing of COVID restrictions, which students embraced with enthusiasm – bringing friends to see Homerton, whether that was in fancy dress at a bop, having a drink in the ever popular Griffin bar, or dressed up at formals. To combat the Week 5 blues, the welfare team organised the universally popular ‘Welfairy’ initiative, reminding our students to check in on friends and do our bit to make the community a more welcoming place. It was this collective spirit that ensured Homerton’s overall performance in the famous Lent term bumps was a resounding success, with W1 going up a place and M1 earning superblades. The club even organised a 150k relay erg to raise over £600 for Streetbite Cambridge in April.

The brand new dining hall opened for service this year and provides a striking modern contrast to our beloved Great Hall. With this new hall, we were able to host formals at an increased capacity whilst still filling the hall with the same old conversations and merriment as before.

Easter term also saw the most ambitious election of a HUS committee so far, with 22 roles to be filled, some highly contested at that. The previous HUS team certainly put on their fair share of events throughout the year, but in Easter term the revival of Sunday Funday events to help alleviate exam stress was down almost entirely to my predecessor Phoebe Hardingham – her effort was highly appreciated by finalists and freshers alike. Of course, no recollection of Easter term is complete without huge congratulations to the May Ball committee, who put together an amazing night of fun, food and frivolity – they

Lshould be very proud of pulling off a successful night, particularly given that most of the committee had never previously attended one.

At the end of the academic year, my fellow finalists and I graduated together and in person in July. To top it all off, the first cohort of Homerton medics finished their clinical years and graduated – we all wish them the best with whatever comes next.

The new academic year has brought its own exciting changes along with our new set of freshers – the HUS office has moved from its old home in the corner of the Cavendish building to a newly built office in the JCR itself, leaving HUS members more accessible and accountable to the students they represent. Even more exciting is the fact that the JCR is now an entirely student focussed space, with events such as ‘baby bops’, open mic nights and seasonal welfare events taking place here. There has even been a new quiet room built into the JCR, allowing students to take breaks from social events without missing out.

Having Simon step into the role of Principal has provided a push for change and growth within the College: most recently Homerton has taken on 5 students for the first Cambridge Foundation Year. Simon’s influence extended even further, with myself and the BME officers helping him organise a spectacular Black History Month dinner hosted at Homerton, for Black students across the University, in October.

Freshers matriculate, finalists graduate, but through it all Homerton remains the same as it was when I arrived in 2017 – a community of friendly, driven individuals striving to make the world a better place, just as they made Homerton home n




Following a successful 21/22 season on the pitch for all of our teams and many Homerton students making their mark in the University football setup, over the summer the decision was made to centralise football at Homerton into a club structure and thus HCAFC was born, enveloping all three mens’ teams and the women and nonbinary squad. There were some bittersweet farewells over the summer as we waved goodbye to the long serving 1s Captain and Vice Joe Lockhart and Fred Sayer and Homerton’s star players in the University teams Louie Roberts and Tatiana Kasujja, Vice-Captains of the Uni Men’s and Women’s teams respectively moved on to pastures new. With the club structure now firmly in place and our newly opened sports pitches the envy of all other colleges, Homerton has everything it needs to stake its place as the college for footballers in Cambridge. May the Griffins keep on soaring.

Men’s I

Following an injury-riddled and subsequently underwhelming 2021/22 campaign, which due to a Lent term resurgence saw us eventually finish third in the Premier Division, the Griffins have started our 2022/23 campaign eager to prove themselves as up there with the very best footballing colleges. Under the new Captain centre back Ben Grischeff, ably deputised by goalscoring sensation Cyprian Kucaj, the Homerton men’s football first team has seen a Michaelmas of both promise and heartbreak in equal abundance. In the Premier Division, the boys find themselves second place with a game in hand, only needing a win by a goal margin of three to see them rise to the summit of the college football pyramid. Boasting an average

goal difference of +5 per game, the trajectory of their league campaign is an exciting one, as they fight towards being the first Homerton team ever to be crowned champions. However, in their Cuppers fixture, played at home in front of a crowd of hundreds and described by many a spectator and player from both sides to have been the highest quality college football game seen for a long time, Homerton fell short to 7-time consecutive winners Fitzwilliam following an unfavourable first round draw. Despite Homerton taking the lead in this largely even affair, Fitz‘s experience ultimately saw them prevail, as they took full advantage of the few chances they had to run out 3–1 winners. Their aspiration for the rest of the season is to win every last fixture they play in, and Michaelmas provided no indication that this isn’t achievable.

Men’s II

The Homerton men’s second team have grown in confidence over the past year, reaching the Shield final in 2022. They were edged 3–2 by Fitzwilliam IIs but it affirmed the Griffins’ intention to fight to become the best second team in Cambridge. The run included a 4–1 success over St Catharine’s, a 7–2 demolition job of Clare II, and a professional 1–0 victory at the high-flying Pembroke II. They also went into the 2021/22 season aiming to stand their ground after being promoted into Division 3 – a league with a significant number of college first teams. The II team secured a seventh-place finish, meaning that only two Colleges – Fitzwilliam and St John’s – had second’s teams higher placed in the Cambridge footballing pyramid. They have taken this successful season in their stride and look to overtake Fitz and John’s this season under the captaincy of goalkeeper Alfie Davis. They re-established their form with an impressive 4–3


win over CCCC, a team who dispatched Homerton 4–1 last year, and only Emmanuel currently have a seconds team above Homerton. A roaring start has also been made to the Shield as they look to win the trophy, following an emphatic 3–0 win over last season’s semi-finalists Jesus IIs. This display of attacking quality, with last season’s star Gregor Fowler combining with new players Tawab Abdul and Andreas Velimachitis to grab the goals, was balanced with defensive resilience in the second half, where Marco Dupuis Rodriguez, Lewis Kelsall, George Akerman, and Jack Deasley maintained the clean sheet.

Men’s IIIs

The Men’s 3rd team (affectionately called the IVs) went into 2022 battling for promotion out of Division 6 – the lowest division in the Cambridge footballing pyramid – for the first time in recent memory. Following a shaky start to the 21/22 season, with a first round Vase exit at the hands of Caius III a particular disappointment, a 5–1 win against Abbey College at the end of November 2021 set the precedent for a winning streak that lasted for an entire calendar year as the IVs won every remaining game of the season to be

Below: Men’s Homerton IVs Promotion from Division 6 to Division 5

promoted out of Division 6 as champions. Now in their second season under Sasha Grantham on the sidelines and Julian Shirnia leading on the pitch, the IVs started their Division 5 campaign with three wins from three, taking to the new league like ducks to water, with fresh talent seamlessly integrated into the squad alongside more experienced heads like the cataclysmic Ben Grassby in midfield, the enigmatic Max Birley at No. 10 and the positively palaeolithic Joe Saxby between the sticks. Unfortunately, the year long winning streak came to an end at the end of Michaelmas as the IVs were finally defeated by Fitzwillilam IIIs. Over the course of the year, the 4s have developed a reputation as Homerton’s equivalent to Barcelona’s famed La Masia academy, with many players such as the Roberto Carlos-esque Lewis Kelsall working their way up to play for the IIs and 1s after honing their craft in the lower divisions. Looking forward, the IVs


are aiming for back-to-back promotions, a strong showing in the Vase, and finding the budget to buy Vice-Captain Julian Shirnia a new pair of boots as his current set are missing soles.


Having competed for the last few seasons as ‘Hemmaton’ – a combined team with Emmanuel College, the decision was made at the beginning of the season to go it alone, and Homerton entered its own Women’s and NB team into Division 2 of the Women’s Premier League. Under the captaincy of star centre-back Molly Carswell, the team got off to a strong start, winning their first ever fixture against an established team and playing only their second match ever against a joint team from the Postgraduate colleges in front of a boisterous home crowd as the undercard to the men’s Homerton-Fitz Cuppers game. Unfortunately, due to player injuries, the women had to concede their own Cuppers game against the same postgraduate opponents. Undeterred by this disappointment, the women move forward into 2023 with talent all over the pitch, with the Blues’ first team keeper Emilia Keavney between the sticks and Kata Csiba and Zuri Lee providing real quality out wide. As one of the only College’s to field their own team – the sky seems to be the limit for what this group of players can achieve.


This term we have seen a high level of participation from returning students and freshers within the club.

For our teams we have had a strong performance from our first and second open teams with both teams being promoted to the next division. Although there has been a lot of effort from the womens team captain to encourage female participation within the league matches they’ve struggled to achieve enough players to compete in matches this term and are currently trying to merge with another College.

Rowing Men’s

The men competed in several competitions this Michaelmas term.

First was the Uni IVs, a 2km knockout competition. M1 IV beat Pembroke M1 in the first round by 2 seconds but then unfortunately lost to Kings in the Quarterfinal.

Secondly was Fairbairns where the M1 VIII placed 28th due to an unlucky situation where the boat behind caught them up which cost them time as they were obliged to move to the side. The M1 IV (comprised of rowers from the VIII who had already raced once that day) placed 8th which was very impressive.

In terms of the Novices it’s been a promising start to the year. NM1 came 3rd in their Queens Ergs division after a really hard fought battle clinching the place by .3 of a second. Unfortunately they were not quite as successful on the water losing both their Emma Sprints races. However they put in an excellent display in Fairbairns, holding off a catching boat the whole way and despite ultimately placing 33rd it was an excellent way to conclude the term.


Both the seniors and the novice rowers have had a successful Michaelmas.

The term started strongly as the novice women (in a mixed team with Hughes Hall) won their division in the rowing machine competition Queens’ Ergs and competed in the finals. They then went on to win two of the four races they competed in in Emma Sprints.

The last event of the term for the women’s crews was the longer-distance race Fairbairns. Both the seniors and the novices competed, with the seniors placing 48th and the novices 26th.

With an almost entirely new first boat and an impressive novice squad, Homerton women’s rowing has had an exciting term n



January – much like the Roman god from whom the month takes its name – is associated with transitions, time, beginnings and endings. Although it tends to be one of the quieter times of year for the Charter Choir (Lent Term usually only begins in the middle of the month), it presents the perfect opportunity to reflect on the past 12 months as well as to look ahead to the exciting prospects of the year to come. At the time of my last contribution to the Annual Review, a tour to Northern Italy in the planning and the choir was still singing in a socially-distanced format. However, we reverted to singing in the choir stalls in April 2022, and

having been doing so ever since, despite a recordbreaking choir intake in October; this has led to the biggest Charter Choir on record, with 12 new singers – almost half the total number. The culmination of the term (and the calendar year) was the carol service, attended by students, staff, fellows, and alumni (followed by Christmas Formal Hall, and – for the choir – the ever popular annual wine and cheese party!).

Other highlights have included a visit to Ely Cathedral in February to sing Evensong, and the long-awaited première of Douglas Coombes’s Five Psalms of Praise, written for the Charter Choir on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of Homerton’s Royal Charter, but whose performance had to be delayed from 2020 until now.

Rev James Shakespeare, Vicar of St John’s church and an Associate Fellow of the College, leads the 2022 Carol Service Jane Liechty (Homerton 1994–1996)

The much-anticipated tour to Italy, unfortunately, did not take place, but was instead replaced by a six-day-long trip to Gibraltar, speedily organised by our Assistant Organist and Music Administrator, Shanna Hart. This gave rise to two concerts and three church services, television coverage, the discovery of rocks, beaches, caves, and panoramic views, and encounters with macaques and dolphins. We were the recipients of generous hospitality sponsored by a local restaurant, a parent of a choir member, and both the Catholic and Anglican cathedral communities. We also enjoyed an organ recital performed by Shanna along with Homerton Organ

Scholar Lorenzo Bennett and the Director of Music at Gibraltar’s Holy Trinity Cathedral, Michael Stevenson. We were sorry to lose so many graduating choir members, but we wish them well and hope to see them back soon.

Some readers will have seen our Christmas greeting in the form of a performance of Peter Warlock’s Bethlehem Down Plans for next year include a new full-length recording release –watch this space for details! – as well as a tour to Iceland. Alumni and friends are always welcome to any of the Charter Choir’s performances, but are invited especially to our Choral Evensong at St Paul’s Cathedral on Monday 19 June 2023 n

In the meantime, please follow us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/homcharterchoir) or Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/charter_choir), and keep an eye on our website at www.homerton.cam.ac.uk/charterchoir.

Research Roundup


r Stephen Burgess is group leader at the MRC Biostatistics Unit and senior scientist in the Cardiovascular Epidemiology Unit. He was recently granted a Career Development Award by the Wellcome Trust.

The award will enable the continuation of Stephen’s work on methodological development and applied analyses in Mendelian randomization, the use of genetic variation to untangle questions of cause and effect.

Stephen’s proposal is to extend and apply methods for Mendelian randomization beyond answering questions about the validity of risk factors as targets for disease reduction, and towards translational questions about the nature of causal pathways. The aim is to provide focused evidence that can inform policymakers and drug developers to identify the best targets for intervention, the best time to intervene, and who would most benefit from intervention. The work will integrate high-dimensional data from crosssectional studies, as well as longitudinal data on traits that vary over time.

Stephen said: “Healthcare research is intrinsically collaborative in nature, as it straddles natural sciences and social sciences. We rely on insight from both domains: to understand the biological mechanisms to which our findings relate, and how the findings can be applied to improve public health or clinical practice. I am truly thankful to the Wellcome Trust for funding our work, which will provide insights to guide the drug development process. Genetic data have already provided many clues as to why some people are more susceptible to certain diseases than others.

DOur work exploits these findings to highlight risk factors and biological mechanisms that can be altered to reduce disease risk.”

Dr Mesele Araya is a Research Associate at the University of Cambridge –Research for Equitable Access and Learning –REAL CENTER. He has a PhD in Human Capital Development from the University of Bergamo (Italy) and an MSc in Economics from Addis Ababa University (Ethiopia). He carries out research in education and learning with the application of mixed methods (quantitative and qualitative methods) in the Global South. He has also been teaching at Addis Ababa University since 2015. He has published widely on education and learning, poverty and inequality reduction, labour market and skill development. Some of his publications are available at Google Scholar Citations.

Mesele outlines his current research project, Understanding Learning Losses during the Pandemic in Ethiopia: Insights from Cohort Comparison.

This research aims to quantify the learning losses due to school closure from COVID-19 by comparing the learning level differences of two cohorts of grade 4 students who took math test exams before and after the pandemic using data from the RISE Ethiopia Project.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the education sector in unprecedented ways and forced over 1.6 billion students to be out of school within a short period of its occurrence (UNESCO, 2021). Like any other country worldwide, Ethiopia closed schools following the first case in mid-March 2020. The national school closure forced more than 26 million learners


to stay home for almost 31 weeks (UNESCO, 2021), accounting for more than two-thirds of an academic year’s loss. For a significant proportion of Ethiopian pupils, learning during school closures was almost nonexistent despite the government’s efforts to create educational programs via national television and radio stations during the school closures (Kim et al., 2021a). School closures and lack of access to supporting education during this time meant potential learning losses for many pupils, particularly those with limited access to remote education materials. Such school closures are also expected to exacerbate the pre-existing inequalities and capacity deficits to remote learning materials (Angrist et al., 2021; Kim et al., 2021b). Several studies have indicated that COVID-19 has already resulted in learning losses in many countries, especially among the poorest and most disadvantaged groups, due to limited access to educational materials at home. A study in Indonesia indicates that pupils have already lost 11 points on the PISA reading scale due to the four-month school closure period from March to July 2020 (Yarrow, Masood & Afkar, 2020). Grade 4 pupils in South Africa also experienced losses of between 62 and 81 per cent of a year of Learning (Ardington et al., 2021), while pupils in the UK lost a third of their expected learning during the COVID-19 school closures (Major, Eyles & Machin, 2021). Similar to these countries, it is expected that the school closure in Ethiopia might result in learning losses and challenges for pupils to catch up, particularly for those from disadvantaged backgrounds, when schools reopened in October 2020. Besides staying out of school for 31 weeks, pupils were also allowed to promote automatically to the next grade level with only 45 days of catch-up classes (MoE, 2020). For example, those attending Grade 3 before the pandemic were automatically promoted to Grade 4 after school reopened in October 2020. Yet, there are limited studies presenting results for gains in learning and progress over the school year after schools reopened in Ethiopia.

Homerton Research

Associate Dr Dmitrii Sergeev, a Marie Sklodowska-Curie

Individual European Fellow at the Faculty of Education, has completed the first stage of his two-year project on ‘Evolving Attitude Toward Single Motherhood in the UK and Russia’. The findings of this stage were discussed at “White Ink, Red Flag” SEEMS (Slavic and Eastern European Maternal Studies) Symposium at the University of Exeter and online “Fostering Dialogue, Teaching Children’s Literature at University” Conference at the Western Norway University of Applied Sciences. Linked to this, Dmitrii published an article on cultural code of single motherhood in post-war Russia in the November issue of Slavonica Journal. He also gave a series of talks and presentations at the Centre for Research in Children’s Literature and Knowledge, Power, and Politics research group at the Faculty of Education.

Dr Priscilla Day-Walsh is a Next Generation Fellow at the Centre for Trophoblast Research working in the Departments of Obstetrics & Gynaecology.

Dr Day-Walsh’s key research interests are in understanding how the human gut microbiome can be utilised as a novel tool for predicting, preventing and treating pregnancy complications and their associated morbidities and mortalities. In particular Dr Day-Walsh’s research aims to provide a mechanistic understanding of how the maternal gut microbiota affect maternalplacental-fetal physiology and the impact this has on pregnancy outcomes and health across the life-span.

Dr Day-Walsh believes that understanding the microbiome is key to overcoming some of global medical challenges such as antibiotic resistance, communicable and non-communicable diseases. To this end she has been instrumental in developing methodological approaches for investigating and analysing microbial metabolites in biological samples.

Her PhD at the University of Southampton which was funded by The Gerald Kerkut Charitable Trust provided mechanisms of nutrient transport and metabolism across the human placenta and the impact of maternal factors such as body composition and smoking on placental nutrient transport and metabolism.

Dr Day-Walsh is a Visiting Research Scientist at the Quadram Institute where she also co-founded the Quadram Institute’s Postdoctoral Society (QIPs) and the Norwich Research Park African Initiative. Dr Day-Walsh is also a member of the Cambridge Reproduction Society, Physiological Society, Cambridge Metabolic Networking and the European Atherosclerosis Society n


Paintings for These Times

The Moravian Connection Continues

This academic year I have had the pleasure of continuing the College’s relationship with the Department of Art Education in Palacky University, Olomouc. This beautiful baroque institution in the east of the Czech Republic has been a regular port of call for academic and social engagement since my first visit back in the Spring of 2014.

This year I have had two visits. The first in August saw me working with art education undergraduates in the gallery spaces of the Olomouc Museum of Modern Art. Modelling engagement strategies aimed at developing young

learners’ visual literacy, the photograph shows me discussing a work by Czech post-modernist painter Jap Stam with a group of students.

In December, I returned to present a paper at the Culture, Art and Education conference to an international audience of delegates. Based on some recent work on how we can develop children’s understanding of women’s place in Georgian England through interrogating the portraits of Thomas Gainsborough, the paper considered the wider issue of explicit and implicit misogyny in the Western art canon. Exploring how working with paintings can lead

Working with the Jap Stam Palacky Art Education Student’s Session

young learners towards a clearer understanding of women’s place in society through their representation in visual art throughout the last eight hundred years. Many of the paintings in the Fitzwilliam Museum collection provide compelling evidence of the patriarchal presentation of women, from the obvious male gaze nudes of Titian to the more subtle but equally damaging representation of women in family portraits and other domestic scenarios.

The second symposium was in the Flemish city of Ghent. The two-day conference focused on the newly restored Lam Gods (the Ghent Altarpiece) by the Van Eyck brothers. It is a remarkable multipaneled polyptych that now restored is a vison to behold. The central panel depicts the moment in the book of Revelation 21–22 when all the great and the good enter the New Jerusalem which represents the most complete explanation available to Christians of what heaven will be like.

From all four corners of the central panel come humanity: groups of martyrs – both male and female, saints, Old Testament patriarchs, pious pagans, apostles and popes. They all process towards the Eucharistic Lamb, who stands on the altar at the centre of the image. Everything is depicted in meticulous detail and thanks to the restoration process this is a great enhancement on what it looked like before.

Meanwhile, I have continued with my work in the galleries of the Fitzwilliam Museum back here in Cambridge. Weekly sessions in the study room perusing the archive folders of the paintings in the gallery inform the expanding selection of works I can draw upon for my art-historical tours. I should add that I am always happy to guide any Fellows, Staff, Retired Members and Alumni who happen to be interested and they simply need to make contact with me at ps233@cam.ac.uk n

Lam Gods (the Ghent Altarpiece) by Hubert van Eyck and Jan van Eyck
DEVELOPMENT From the Development Director Our Donors


It always astonishes me how beautifully the Charter Choir sing at our annual Alumni Reunions in September, when they are always meeting and performing together for the very first time. It’s a reminder that our community refreshes and replenishes itself constantly, and that the institution we call Homerton (displaying the paradox variously known as Theseus’s Ship, the Philosopher’s Axe, or Rodney’s Brush) is never and yet always the same.

This September we welcomed nearly 200 alumni back – some for the first time ever, and all for the first time since the pandemic scuppered normal operations. We were treated to a poetry

workshop, tours of rooms and gardens, and a showing of what we really must stop calling the Lost Film, along with a panel discussion on ethnic diversity in the student body, chaired by the Principal with our wonderful alumni Beverley Cowan (1974) and Ali Azeem (2002) and our current student Afope Ogunremi. After two ‘virtual’ years, it was terrific to see people in three dimensions again.

We hosted a mini-reunion too for the 40th Anniversary cohort. This group is something of a miracle of self-organisation – a kernel of friends who initially rallied together to support their contemporary, Sister Bernadette Chabongora, and who ended up (through the magic of wordof-mouth and word-of-WhatsApp) rebuilding almost their entire year group. In July 53 of them

descended on Homerton and were among the first to eat in our new Dining Hall.

Dedicated readers of the Annual Review will know of Sister Bernadette already – a remarkable nun, teacher and mathematician who led her convent and school in Zimbabwe through Covid, before her untimely death this year. An obituary appears on page 92. Her name was on our lips too in November, when Homerton hosted a colossal dinner for Black History Month (see cover), and she received a posthumous award

from the College, collected by her friend Sally Hyde Lomax (1981).

It was a mammoth year too for MA graduations, as we welcomed back 257 young alumni over three separate graduation ceremonies, catching up (almost) on the Covid backlog. It was heartwarming to see so many back in College for the first time since graduation.

Bringing together themes of academic excellence, our alumni community and contribution to society, we were thrilled and

grateful to Dr Erica Hirsch (1965) for a superb and generous donation which will be deployed to support a PhD student in science and education – two intersecting topics which help our society to function, and right in the sweet spot for Homerton’s expertise.

Finally – DRAMA! This is not so much looking back to 2022, but a call out to all alumni who were involved in drama at Cambridge: whether in Homerton or in town, whether as an actor or behind the scenes, whether as part of a BEd or simply as part of what doctors call a balanced lifestyle. We have so much strength in our alumni base in this area, we are keen to make sure we have decent records.

Every good wish to all 19,958 of you for 2023 and beyond! n

Audrey Goodyear (1942) and friends at ARW 2022 David Johnson


The Principal, Fellows, students and staff of Homerton College wish to thank alumni and friends who have generously made donations to the College in 2022. Every effort has been made to ensure that the list is accurate; do contact us if you believe we have made an omission.

Alumni News

Retired Senior Members’ Association


We are delighted to share the following news of our alumni. Please do get in touch (alumni@homerton.cam.ac.uk) if you would like to include an update in the next issue.


Margaret Grimsey (née Vasey) (CertEd 1947) sent a wonderful recollection of her time at Homerton, “I made three life-long friends at Homerton 1947–1949. Jill Moor (nee Parriss); Audrey Naisby (nee Thomson) and Joyce Moyse (nee Wilson). We’ve been in touch ever since. Audrey and Jill died recently, so Joyce and I thought we might summarise something of our experiences, progress and achievements for the Homerton Annual Review.

Two years after the end of the War, Homerton was a two-year Training College for women teachers. Food was rationed; there were clothes coupons; BUs (bread units), and too few staff. We all had domestic duties to make the College run smoothly, which it did.

During the first year, we had to try our hand at every subject, and in the second we chose two specialist subjects. Audrey and Jill took Art; Joyce and I Music. All four of us were in Mr Warmington’s Educational Psychology group. We valued his warmth and wisdom, and the skill with which he drew out the best in us. Our tutorials and discussions were always lively and challenging. It was through this group our friendship was cemented. Mr Warmington’s teaching advice was always pithy and pertinent. “Cultivate the roving eye” meant always be aware of what is happening in all corners of the classroom.

Joyce and I were also lucky to be taught music by Dr Lewis; her lectures were a revelation and delight for us. She had a quirky sense of humour. Keeping the children’s attention was essential to her. In her demonstration lesson, with a class of junior children, she took off a shoe to hammer a

drawing pin into the blackboard. She certainly kept our attention when teaching the whole College. She wore what appeared to be a yellow woollen once-piece under her plaid skirt and tight black velvet jacket. It turned out to be made up of a number of separate matching parts. The yellow sleeves were longer than the jacket sleeves, and the roll-top neck was too bulky. If she became hot, she would whip off the yellow cuffs, and soon the roll-top would be pulled over her head, leaving us to speculate how she would manage the stockings when their turn came. But in her tutorial group, there were no tricks, we were always riveted. She composed under her maiden name, Greta Tomlins. One spring day, she distributed some new music with a conspiratorial smile and the words “Ladies, I have immortalised Milton”. The poem ’ s first line was, “Now the bright morning star day’s harbinger come dancing from the East” – It was sung at 7am to celebrate May Day

Joyce was very popular and was elected to be a Rep The Reps’ duties were all concerned with student welfare They were responsible for the behaviour on their corridor and served our food at the head of a table of 17. Upon leaving she taught for more than 30 years, with a gap for a young family She was also head-hunted to lecture in a Nottingham Education College after the Census indicated there would shortly be an increase in the number of children of Primary School age

For 30 years, she led a choir with mid-week rehearsals and frequent concerts – What a gift she must have been to her community. John her husband really appreciated her musical abilities and was totally supportive


They had three children, who have now become an enormous extended family All the generations met for a weekend celebrating Joyce’s 90th Birthday. She has very limited sight, so the message on each of her many friends’ cards was read out for her Whenever her “wonderful family” was mentioned a cheer rang out – I would love to have been there

Jill got straight As in everything She went on to Birkbeck, leaving with a Doctorate in a branch of Psychology, returning to Homerton as a Lecturer Before marriage, she and I spent a number of happy holidays youth hostelling. Then she lectured in Botswana, where her husband was a Doctor for nine years Their two children were born there I asked her what was the most difficult thing to get used to in Botswana; she said, “Everywhere is brown, except our lawn which gets watered regularly”.

After returning from Botswana they eventually settled in Petersfield She was an expert in all forms of dyslexia, helping many children who

were struggling in and around the town We took a keen interest in each other’s children and shared each other’s pride in their achievements I was delighted to learn that her daughter, my God-daughter, who is a language teacher, had been complimented by an Inspector with the words “I would like to think that every child in the country was receiving the same teaching as your children”. Having captained the Homerton Cricket Team with Mr Warmington’s willing support, Jill coached the local team – Their stripey blazers were very much in evidence at her funeral service.

Audrey’s husband taught the children of British Forces posted to West Berlin for three years when their boys were young, and their daughter was born there Both Audrey and Eddie taught in Liverpool and Manchester, til Eddie said, “Enough!”. They bought a longhouse at the edge of a tiny village, Clocaenog, in North Wales, and embarked upon the ‘good life’, a rejuvenating move for both of them. Eddie’s hair even grew back. Between them they seemed to be able to do everything Their new home was already called Paradwys, and soon became Paradise There was a field full of sheep, a very large pig, sometimes piglets, geese and ducks in the stream and chickens at the back One year, the honey only came second in the local Horticultural Show – the labels were not straight. The following year, a Grandson took over the labelling job and the honey came first again Then there were goats each with an operatic name I remember Tosca and Guilda, but the third, could she have been called Mimi? When I hinted that the daily milking

Margaret Grimsey and friends

at the correct times must be a bit of a chore, Audrey would smile and say, “At least there’s no marking”, as she disappeared with her pail. They planted a woodland, which after 40 years is mature and full of flowers in season

Not only were they opera buffs, but also dedicated musicians Eddie a flautist taught woodwind, and Audrey taught piano at the prestigious girls’ boarding school, Howell’s, and the chamber music group met regularly at Paradwys. Their hospitality was always generous, and we all made an effort to visit.

After retirement from teaching, I became involved in the local prison; first as an emergency organist and then leading the choir When choir practice became a music education class this was a paid position It ran for five years Each September at the start of the year someone would ask, “Do we get paid to come to this class Miss?” My swift reply was always, “No this is music for pleasure, pleasure for you and pleasure for me”. They kept coming. My husband, a Probation Officer, was an invaluable back up, listening and advising after I came home I continued to play the organ at services for 29 years When I mentioned this on my last day a voice said, “That’s a life sentence Miss”. At the same time I joined the team of organists at the crematorium and played there for 20 years until computers replaced us. I loved it; choosing the most beautiful music that I could manage to play.

The four of us were only able to meet together with our families once in the late 1970s when they came to visit us in Exeter Over the years we attended several alumni weekends, visited each other when possible and kept in touch by phone, Christmas and Birthday cards This enduring friendship has been important to us for over 70 years built on our shared experience and the excellent teaching we received at Homerton”.

With the help of her husband Eric, Gillian MacFarlane (née Tucker) (CertEd 1948/9) sent us her fascinating recollections of her time at Homerton, “Homerton made an immediate impact on me when I first entered the College – the splendid reception area with its floral display, the fine Hall, the polished floors and furniture. Everything was so spacious, clean and orderly. I remember marvelling, in particular, at the beautifully laid-up tables in the Hall It was all very impressive but not at all intimidating: the atmosphere was warm and welcoming and I came to realise in the following weeks that this was also true of the community that I was joining The staff clearly enjoyed and respected the College and expected the students to do the same.

The College experience was quite unlike anything I’d previously encountered. I don’t know how I’d imagined it – probably something like a girls’ boarding school of the kind that was popular in girls’ magazines at the time That image was quickly dispelled: it was a much more adult and mature place Everything about the College was of a high standard – even the food, despite the problems of catering in the years following the Second World War. ‘Civilised’ is the word that comes to mind and the students responded to this I don’t recall there ever being any silly or antisocial behaviour The College was very successful in absorbing students from very different backgrounds and creating a community that was at ease with itself

I found the routines of this ordered and attractive world much to my liking. Every morning, immediately after breakfast, I attended the short ecumenical service that was held in the College lounge Students from different denominations took responsibility for organising the service and for providing the speaker for the short address which was the focus of the service Some staff also came along It was a relaxed and informal meeting and well attended, with many students sitting on the floor I found that the occasion provided a very good start to the day.


The College worked hard with regard to students’ induction Each new student was allocated a second-year companion, or ‘College mother’, who was responsible for the integration of her ‘daughter’ into the community The second years showed the new students round and talked through all the College routines with them. Some mothers gave their firstyear student a small welcome present; others took them to the theatre or to some event in the university There were a series of coffeemornings and tea-parties for small groups of new students and their second-year ‘mothers’ and we were well entertained My ‘mother’ was an old girl of my school in High Wycombe and, when it was my turn to take responsibility for a new arrival, I was partnered with another Wycombe High School pupil

There was a tradition of annual events organised by second-year students for the first year that extended well beyond the initial induction period For example, early one morning at the end of the first term, second-

year students toured the floors that housed the first year and serenaded them with carols I remember being disappointed that I missed out on this introduction to Christmas celebrations because I was housed in a large house well away from the main College buildings This arrangement however, did have some advantages as the small community at Wivlingham became particularly close-knit and self-supporting There was always someone on hand to help if you had a problem

I shared a room with three other students and we quickly began to function as a team, a process helped by a problem that I had with my luggage. All my clothes, bedding (we had to bring our own), books and personal belongings had been packed into the family’s big wooden blanket chest or trunk and transported from Wycombe to Cambridge by a combination of courier, porters and taxi It was an exceptionally secure alternative to a case, which soon became very obvious when I realised that I’d left the key that opened it at home. When all suggestions for forcing the lock failed, my room-mates rallied round and provided me with most of the necessities that I needed until the key arrived from home

I became close friends with two of my roommates and one other Wiv student, and the four of us corresponded for the rest of our lives via a lengthy round-robin of news and comments, for which each of us wrote an annual instalment For the last few years there have been only two of us left, but we maintained the tradition until a few weeks before the last of my friends died last year

Gillian MacFarlane during her time at Homerton Gillian MacFarlane

All Homerton students followed a major course in educational theory and practice which included an introduction to principles applicable to a range of school subjects After the general course on subject teaching, all students were asked to choose a specialist subject for in-depth study from a wide range of options

The norm was to study one subject, but some students were allowed to follow two, usually one academic option and a creative or practical subject, such as art or PE. A very small number of students followed two academic specialisms, but anyone expressing an interest in doing this was warned that it was a very tough undertaking My decision to take history was straightforward: it had been my favourite subject in the sixthform before I left school to look after my family during my mother’s lengthy illness But I was also developing a keen interest in theology, quickened by my awareness during the early weeks of contact with staff, that this subject was particularly well-taught at the College. I opted, therefore, for two academic specialisms, received the customary warnings about over-commitment, and stood my ground I very much wanted to explore a completely new area of human knowledge and experience and I was confident that I could cope with the workload I suspect too, that I was determined not to let my status in the College be defined by my lack of the normal College entry requirements.

The lecture was the main teaching method, although we did have some timetabled smallgroup sessions in which I was able to indulge my enjoyment of debate The lectures were delivered to large audiences by very serious academics whom we never got to know as people However, there was less distance between staff and students on the specialist courses and I developed a good relationship with my theology tutor, in particular. Miss Glover took an interest in me and encouraged me to think in terms of my continuing my theological studies after leaving Homerton

The College had a personal tutor system and my tutor, Miss Woodard, was fully committed to her role. I was aware of students who were less fortunate. Miss Woodard was a kind and generous person, a true lady in the old-fashioned sense She was a vicar’s daughter and lived with her father in his vicarage in the town Soon after our arrival in College she entertained all her tutees in the vicarage and then later invited small groups to tea to discuss how they were getting on and to enable them to raise any issues that needed resolving. I liked her very much and found her an interesting person. She was Froebel trained as a teacher

I remember that I suffered considerable embarrassment on one occasion when ‘Woodard’ had to chastise me for inappropriate behaviour The College owned a large house in Highgate which was used to accommodate students who were having a six-week teaching experience in a London school. Woodard was one of the staff on duty while I was there. It was a Saturday and I’d washed my hair in the afternoon, preparatory to going into London with friends after the evening meal I went down to the meal with a couple of curlers on each side of my head As I went to take my place at the table a student came up to me to say that Woodard wanted to see me at High Table, where she made it clear that coming to the meal in that way was unacceptable. I was sent to my room. Woodard was firm, but not unpleasant – I don’t think she’d have been capable of unpleasantness – and she never alluded to my transgression subsequently

It was Miss Woodard who encouraged me to aim high in my teaching career and to apply for an attractive post at the prestigious GPDST High School in Ipswich My application was successful and gave me a very attractive combination of senior school history and responsibility for one of the forms in the preparatory department I was pleased to justify Woodard’s good opinion of me

One of the most enjoyable aspects of my time at College was the freedom of movement that it


provided. This feeling extended to the University and City as well. There was all this space available through which you could walk at will. Homerton had immaculate lawns and gardens and ‘the Backs’ and the Cam were, of course, a delight You could wander through the College quads and gardens and even into the College buildings The University offered a seemingly endless range of activities open to anyone who was interested and the teeming back streets of the City and the many buildings, so steeped in history, were a constant fascination. I took full advantage of these opportunities.”


Carolyn Hood-Cree (née Robins) (CertEd with Geography 1962–1965) wrote to us with memories of her teaching career, “My time at Homerton, then a prestigious teacher training college, began 60 years ago. I came from a very humble background and am eternally grateful for the chance I was given all those years ago. We were first years when it became a three-year course – before the powers that be had worked out to use the additional year!

I excelled in teaching, rather than academically, subsequently teaching in the UK then Rhodesia, for nine wonderful years, and back in UK, where, after 13 years, I became headteacher of a threeform entry Infant School in an area of social deprivation, for almost 15 years. I retired at 62 having finally managed, after years of struggling with the local authority, to open a nursery school on my site.

During my time as a headteacher in Kent, I was closely involved with teacher training with what was then Christchurch Teacher Training College, founded 60 years ago. Like Homerton, now a Cambridge College, Canterbury is now part of the University of Kent”.

Dr Tricia Cusak has recently published her fourth book, “ ‘The Reading Figure in Irish Art in the Long Nineteenth Century’ was out this year.

It was great fun to write. I have published three other books, including ‘Riverscapes and National Identities ‘, recently reissued in paperback, and a lot of articles.

As someone now retired from full-time lecturing, I would never have been able to complete the research for these publications without alumni access to the JSTOR resources of Cambridge and Edinburgh universities”.


Harriet Davies (née Pole) (BEd 1985–89) wrote to us about her change of career, “After 23 years as a primary teacher, I made a complete change and studied for a degree in nursing. I worked in acute stroke care for two years before moving into palliative and end of life care. I now work in the community as a hospice at home nurse. Despite my career change, every day is definitely still a school day”.

Ginny Caulkin (née Roussel) (BEd 1988) sent us a wonderful account of her Language School, “I did a BEd with French at Homerton, and graduated in 1988. After some years teaching in a primary school in South Harrow, London, and then moving to Parwork in industry, the first of my four children was born in 1997 at which point I decided to abandon my career to look after my children full-time. Three other children followed over the next fifteen years. Jack n’ Jill Language School officially came into being following my divorce in 2009.

My little school started from my lounge with my four children under strict orders to be quiet and not disturb mummy’s lessons. Thank goodness I could rely on the older children to look after their younger siblings! Evenings and weekends were spent developing a small business, creating a website and putting things under a more official status… and teaching! Today I’m proud to say I run a team of 30 teachers who teach my half-day programmes in several schools in and around Paris


and weekly lessons in my institutes, guided by many of the values and expertise gained during my years at Homerton. Around 300 school-age pupils and as many adults achieve greater fluency and a love of English throughout the year with us.

We obtained our status as a Certified Government “Organisme de Formation” Training Centre in 2019 which enables us to deliver training courses to adults on government-funded programmes on top of weekly lessons for the townsfolk. Language camps are the highlight of our terms where I am on a mission to prove to French children that they can have fun AND learn, which sometimes I feel is mutually exclusive in the French education system. Rounders, board games, cooking and art activities are great ways to practice using our English and the students don’t even realise they’re learning. Weekly lessons, intensive training courses, half-day immersion programmes.... Jack n’ Jill now works with seven primary and secondary schools, several city halls delivering language camps to children, not to mention our own institute in Coulommiers and more recently Lagny-sur-Marne where we inaugurated our second institute in July 2021. Coming back regularly to Britain to primary schools to observe excellent practice has guided me in installing state-of-the-art technology in my classrooms so teachers and students experience the best learning environment possible. We were recognised as an official Cambridge exam preparation centre in 2020 and I think our pupils’ outstanding results have reflected the energy and passion I encourage my teachers to put into their teaching. This October, we will be holding yet another Diploma Ceremony for pupils and their families, and this year I will have the immense pleasure to reward pupils who started with me when they were 10 and have achieved their “First B2 Cambridge Certificate of English” aged 18! Now I am delighted to welcome onto my team students from Homerton and other universities in the UK for their third-year internship abroad. Karl, a young student from Cambridge on a PGCE course,

declared that he felt working on my language camps was like an intensive course in teaching. It is wonderful to feel that I can pass on knowledge and help these youngsters on their path to becoming good teachers. Teaching for me is definitely the most rewarding career in the world and I am forever thankful to Homerton for encouraging me to strive for excellence”.


Philip Hamson (BEd Education 1981–1983) one of Ian Morrison’s Physics students, is delighted to be in retirement and awaiting the arrival of his first grandchild after many successful years as Head of Physics at The Dixie Grammar School. For some 28 years, he was head of Physics but also head of Lancaster House, ran back stage at school productions, Duke of Edinburgh to Gold standard, and led many national and international trips. He coached fencing to national standard and memorably sang ‘Little List’ from The Mikado, in the court house annexe of the school.

Married to Rosalind, with daughter Rachael and son-in-law Dan, he has in retirement, completed three projects. His restored 911 won a prize in the Porsche Club concours at Chatsworth, and he has restored a 1960s pinball machine. Finally he restored during lockdown, an Eddy Mercx replica bicycle for Dan, his son-in-law. His ambition to see all of the Gilbert and Sullivan cannon of operettas at The Buxton Festival is progressing. Much of this due to the training he received at Homerton. “Thanks to all the staff who persevered with me.”

Charlotte Sewell (BEd 1985–89) wrote to tell us of her career in the TV and Film industry, “I work in film and TV, in costume. My teaching experience and my Cambridge experiences started my career. Footlights, CULES (Cambridge University Light Entertainment Society), the Marlowe Society and the Drama department at Homerton (and most importantly Keith Loveday) were the basis for going on to a costume degree


at Wimbledon School of Art, and subsequently a very successful film and TV career. I owe much to my university years!”

Penny Walch (née Beale) (BEd Education 1989) wrote, ‘I am in my seventh year as the head Teacher-Librarian at Southwell School in Hamilton, New Zealand, where I have worked for over 20 years now, in multiple capacities!!!

As well as loving a wide range of children’s literature (thanks Morag Styles!) I am also passionate about helping our students navigate the online world of mis- and disinformation.

This year, my colleague and I started a podcast about Kiwi Kids’ Lit, which sadly is on a hiatus while my colleague recovers from serious illness, but we do love talking about the world of New Zeland’s children’s literature.

I am married to Pete, and we have a 19 year old daughter who is at Auckland University studying Law and Criminology, and a 16 year old son who is still at school’.

the University of Pennsylvania and now works as a senior applied scientist at Amazon in the United States in a team that has built the world’s fastest privacy-preserving codebase for AI deep learning.

Congratulations also go to Dr David Kraft (PGCE 2002) who has been elected President of the section of the Hypnosis and Psychosomatic Medicine at the Royal Society of Medicine. His Presidency will run between October 2021 to September 2023. The Royal Society of Medicine runs frequent meetings for doctors, nurses, psychologists, dentists and speciality doctors, as well as other healthcare professionals.


Emma Bowell (BA Education with English 2010–2013) sent an update on her successful sporting endeavours, “In 2021 I became the Chair of Croydon Women’s Football Club. Croydon were a top flight team in the 90s, winning the FA Cup twice, but sadly disbanded in 2000. We reformed in 2019 and were league champions in 2021/22, going unbeaten in the league all season. Following the success of England in this year’s women’s Euros, we have continued to secure sponsorship for the club and we will be playing all of our home matches at Croydon Arena going forward, the same venue as Croydon Men. Always keen to hear from anyone who wants to support or become involved in the women’s game!”

Congratulations to Zhiqi Bu (BA Mathematics 2012) who this year received a PhD in Applied Mathematics and Computational Science from

Earlier this year, the ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) announced with great fanfare the 350 pieces which will make up the syllabus for their graded piano exams in 2023–24. Among the few pieces chosen to promote the new syllabus is A Distant Star in the Stillness, written by Homerton alumnus Dr David Önaç (MPhil Music and Musical Composition 2002–2006) for Grade 5 piano. David was specially commissioned to write the piece for the new syllabus, which aims to highlight music from diverse traditions and composers from a wider range of backgrounds.

After graduating with a BA in Music at Homerton in 2005, David stayed on to complete an MPhil in Composition with Professor Robin Holloway. He then went on to an MMUS in Composition at the Royal Northern College of Music, and a PhD in Musical Composition at the University of Manchester. In 2012, the year he completed his PhD, he received the Royal Philharmonic Society’s prestigious Composition Prize.

David has lectured at the University of Birmingham, and the University of Manchester, and


now teaches composition and jazz at the RNCM’s Junior School. He is also the Musical Director of the multi-award-winning University of Manchester Harmony Gospel Choir and professional gospel collective Voices Beyond, and describes himself as “passionate about seeing young musicians achieve their greatest potential.”

We were delighted to hear that Kaiti Soultana (BA Management Studies 2014–2017) announced her engagement to partner, Torkil William Thomas Harrison, whom she met while at Homerton, studying at the Judge Institute, “We met in our final year doing the Management Studies Tripos, and we’ve been together ever since (now over 6 years). He’s an alumnus of Gonville and Caius where he matriculated in 2013 to read MML”.

Michael Williams (MSt Entrepreneurship 2018) sent us an account of his work with children in the Ukraine, “In addition to my day job, I founded and currently run a 501c3 non-profit organization in the U.S. called OASIS (Organization for Active Social Impact and Sustainability). I also founded and served as the first president of the Cambridge University Social Impact & Sustainability Society (cusiss.org).

Members of my NGO and I have been volunteering on the front lines in Ukraine since March, donating and hand-delivering medical supplies, medicine, food, and other supplies and equipment to refugees, medical workers, and soldiers. I have also been training front-line paramedics and Ukrainian soldiers on how to use trauma medical equipment like tourniquets, chest seals and haemostatic bandages.

In addition to the volunteer work, I have organized a fundraising campaign called “Kids

Dr David Önaç

Helping Ukraine” (www.kidshelpingukraine.org).

The project involves hundreds of children across Ukraine making handmade friendship bracelets to raise money for Ukrainian orphans, displaced children, and for other humanitarian efforts. The children have been making bracelets since the summer. We now have over 15,000 bracelets that OASIS is selling in the US and Ukraine. We are taking logistical steps now to hopefully sell them in the UK soon.

You can read more about the project and see lots of pictures of bracelet-making events and “donations in action” on the website

www.kidshelpingukraine.org. Donations to Ukrainian humanitarian efforts have reduced to a trickle since the start of the war, as most of the world has stopped talking about it. However, with the onset of a very cold winter, combined with Russian bombardment of Ukrainian infrastructure, civilians are now even more in dire straits. Most of Ukraine suffers heat, water, and power outages daily, frequently for days at a time. Things have progressed from bad to far worse. So, they need all the help they can get from the rest of the world” n

riday 10th June 2022 was a red letter day for Retired Senior Members (RSMs), the day that those who live locally were finally able to resume our term-time monthly coffee mornings in College. The coffee had clearly been brewing for quite some time since the last coffee morning on Friday 21st February 2020, a date when the word pandemic was only just reaching our vocabulary, but we are grateful for the utmost care College went to to keep everyone, including RSMs, safe and well. One year later than planned, we were able to officially welcome Lord Simon Woolley at our first coffee meeting of the academic year, even though it was with impeccable timing that, having somehow evaded Covid all this time, I succumbed to it three days earlier and my emailed words of welcome were delivered on my behalf.

Although there appeared to be little or no change in the Pandemic during the last academic year in terms of in-person meetings, Pandemic life has not been without its technological changes –even for RSMs. We have steadily increased our personal expertise participating in a range of online events including a talk (with screen sharing and power point displays), several committee meetings and having mastered two purely on-line events we embraced a hybrid format for our most recent on-line AGM.

But without our coffee mornings to look forward to, what have RSMs being doing with themselves? The key is probably in the word

F‘retired’ – we are left to return to the playground to amuse ourselves leaving others to continue the ‘day job’. Recent Newsletters may provide some of the answers; the idea supplied by the title of one printed this year: “So what gets you out of bed in the morning?” For its author it is being a guide at the Cambridge Botanic Garden but equally applying the same question to other articles provides a range of answers (space dictates from one Newsletter only) to those authors too which in turn makes it possible to portray and encapsulate the very being of RSMs. Here goes.

For some (Knowledge Quartet, 5Voices Project) it is continuing their research interests into ‘retirement’, still reaching an academic audience and still influencing practising teachers, or taking Homerton Graduands to India during their summer vacation to be involved in an innovative project there. Perhaps unsurprising for retired historians, it is their never ending interest in Homerton’s history: one investigating the building in 1889–91 of a new Dining Hall (nothing changes) for Cavendish College, another providing unstinting work both in the Homerton Archives and The Heritage Project. Others use leisure time gained in retirement to pursue their own interests, increasing a wealth of artistic skills or embracing different forms of knowledge beyond their professional subjects, although the mathematicians continue with more solving of hard problems collaboratively. No wonder we are always asking how did we ever find the time to work.

But paramount to all our interests is that we never lose our love of all things Homertonian n

Obituaries In Memoriam


Intro text?


CertEd 1948–50

Alice died on 4th February, 2022, aged 91 years, having lived her life to the full. Alice studied English, Latin and French at Homerton, training to be a teacher. She made lifelong friends there, who were very important to her, many of whom she

kept in contact with regularly. She joined the Cambridge University Choir; her love of music and of singing continued throughout her life. She met her husband, Richard (Dick) Addison, at Cambridge University, through their shared love of music and education. They married in Cambridge University Chapel in 1951.

“All our friends (many of whom were musicians) came back to play and sing at our wedding”. As well as bringing up her four children, Alice worked as a teacher. Passionate about education, her long career included working in Adult Education, Special Education, Durham Home Teaching Service and Hospital Teaching Service. During the 1970s, Richard Addison founded a Chamber Choir, The Durham Singers; Alice sang alto in the choir for 37 years. The Durham Singers sang in her memory, at her funeral. Alice always remembered her time at Homerton as some of the happiest days of her life. In later life she returned regularly for Homerton Roll Annual Reunions, finding great joy in reconnecting with her friends there. Alice is mourned by, and remembered, with great love, by her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and her dear friends.

Alice is 2nd on the left, at the forefront of the photo, laughing. She is with her friends at Homerton, at some time between 1948–1950.


BEd Education with Art 1980–1984

Chrissy passed away on 4th April 2022 after a 5 year tussle with pancreatic cancer. She had enjoyed an amazing career in primary education, culminating in two headships, the last of which was at the Weatheralls in Soham, Cambridgeshire.

Her funeral, held at Bury St Edmunds on 6th May and attended by over 70 family, friends and colleagues, was in the form of a personal tribute to her loves, life and career. We all miss her terribly.


CertEd 1942

Kathleen made many friends in Cambridge as she was a very good violinist. She was especially close to Gwyneth de Jong, also a very good violinist, sharing their passion for violin music. Another close friend Betty Mason (Black) was a year ahead of Kathleen. Betty was a very good violist and violinist.

A representative of Homerton College would come to Sheffield every year to seek suitable girls that would benefit from Homerton’s Teacher Training. Kathleen was surprised at being chosen and thought that it was her violin

playing skill that was the magic dimension. It was war time and Kathleen settled in very quickly. She enjoyed all the music on offer in Cambridge, joining the main Madrigal Group. Shortly after leaving Homerton, Kathleen began teaching at a private Prep School for young boys near Thame and then Burngreave School for Girls. Kathleen took a short break to raise her three children with husband Roger and returned to teaching once the children reached school age.



Sister Bernadette Chabongora’s early education was disrupted by two things – her decision, in her late teens, to join the Sisters of the Child Jesus convent, and guerrilla warfare.

Having attended her local village school and a boarding school, both in rural Zimbabwe, Sister Bernadette continued to study for her A levels after taking her vows and becoming a nun. But the unrest due to the protracted guerrilla war caused her school to be closed, barely a month after starting A Level studies, so she and a fellow junior nun were sent to London to complete the course.

After finishing her A levels Sister Bernadette decided to stay on in the UK to train as a teacher, arriving at Homerton in the autumn of 1981.

Sister Bernadette was older than her classmates, a member of a religious order, and one of very few Black students in Cambridge at the time.

Returning to Zimbabwe after her degree, Sister Bernadette worked as a teacher and in teacher training, later completing her MPhil. Rising through the ranks of the country’s education system, she spent time as the National Chief Examiner, as well as working as Education Secretary for the Diocese of Gweru, where her convent is based.

In the early 2000s she completed her PhD in South Africa, returning to Cambridge to write up her dissertation.

education had to take a back seat to overseeing the order’s community projects. These include a children’s home which cares for around 70 orphans and vulnerable children; a home for around 150 children with intellectual disabilities; a health centre looking after patients with HIV as well as providing general health care; and a school supporting young mothers to continue their secondary education.

This crucial role of community support which the nuns provide meant that they were in the frontline when the pandemic hit Zimbabwe in 2020. With no medication or protective equipment, Covid-19 hit Gweru hard, with the convent providing the bulk of the care for those affected. Hyper-inflation meant that the nuns were already struggling to meet their ongoing costs, and were unable to cover the additional expenses of masks and PPE.

When Sister Bernadette’s Homerton contemporaries heard of the difficulties the convent was facing, they rallied round. Four friends worked to spread the word, managing to reach out to 80% of their original year group via a WhatsApp group. Through a Crowdfunder, and a story shared on Homerton’s social media platforms, they raised over £5,000 to support the community through the Covid crisis.

In 2013

Sister Bernadette became part of the order’s leadership team, a full-time role which meant that for six years her commitments in

Homerton Drama Studio Manager

Keith passed away in February 2022 after a short illness. He was synonymous with theatre at Homerton for over 20 years, during a time when it was the only college in Cambridge offering a degree in drama. Coming from a background in professional theatre, Keith ran the drama studio with the sort of quiet and understated efficiency that was essential to enable multiple productions to be staged in a single evening. This could lead many fresh-faced first years to view him as quite a formidable and intimidating individual. However, there was very much more to Keith than a highly disciplined and effective theatre practitioner.

Keith was certainly somebody whose respect had to be earned and someone whom you wanted to please. He was very generous with his time which he extended way beyond the drama department. Numerous students paid him a visit to borrow props and costumes to use in school during their various teaching practices. For many years he ran a Saturday drama club for Cambridge school children. Whilst in 1991 he and his wife, Ianthe, financially supported a group of students to take a children’s play that had been devised under Keith’s tutelage, to the Edinburgh Festival.

A talented footballer in his youth, Keith remained an active man throughout his life. In keeping with Cambridge tradition, he eschewed the car in favour of a bicycle, was a keen badminton player and enjoyed spending time on his allotment. He was a whisky enthusiast and no Christmas in the Drama Department was complete without a mug of Keith’s mulled wine, made to a secret recipe which he maintained had been disclosed to him by a monk, when he was lighting a theatre production set at a monastery.

Although he had an extensive knowledge of twentieth century plays, Keith’s interests extended beyond the theatrical to literature in general. He had a particular love of European absurdist writing, from the likes of Ionesco and Samuel Beckett

through to B.S. Johnson and Flann O’Brien. As well as enjoying reading and discussing books, he also wrote. One short play, which he described as “Pinteresque”, was broadcast on BBC radio.

It was natural that Keith was involved in the move from the old “white building” to a new studio in the Mary Allan Building before finally lowering the curtain on his Homerton career. This was very much the ending of an era. Homerton was transitioning from a teacher training institution and Keith and Ianthe moved on to a new chapter in their lives.

The couple relocated to Pickering, North Yorkshire in 1998 and opened a Bed and Breakfast. This enabled Keith to indulge one of his other loves – cooking. A vegetarian long before it was popular to be so, Keith’s veggie breakfasts were the ideal foundation for a day spent exploring the moors. A keen gardener, Keith took much pleasure in cooking the produce that he had tended on his allotment in Cambridge.

In 2004, after hanging up his apron, there was a move to the small Suffolk village of Monks Eleigh. Here Keith and Ianthe became involved in volunteering for the community shop, with Keith also serving on its committee. Time was additionally spent engaging in local gardening and history clubs.

Their next stop in 2011 was to the land of Ianthe’s birth. Taking up residence in Kalamata, Southern Greece, Keith was able to add citrus fruit trees to the list of flowers and vegetables that he cultivated. This resulted in a plentiful supply of marmalade! They returned to Cambridge in 2019, where they were able to spend more time with their daughters and grandchildren.

Keith will be fondly remembered by generations of Homertonians, particularly those drama undergraduates, who had the great good fortune to spend extended time in his company. His humour, knowledge and generosity of spirit were a pleasure that we were privileged to share.

In March the College community came together to mourn Daniel Fry, a second-year student of history at Homerton, who died tragically and unexpectedly, aged 20.

Daniel came to Homerton from Belfast, and quickly immersed himself in Cambridge life. He was a film buff, a photographer, and a budding journalist, who also found time to volunteer discreetly for the Cambridge homelessness charity Streetbite.

Daniel’s parents, Susan and Chris, his brother Jonah and his grandparents, who had all travelled from their home in Northern Ireland, joined students, Fellows and staff on the Homerton lawns for a series of readings and reminiscences. A fuller account of the memorial is available at https://www.homerton.cam.ac.uk/homersphere/ news/remembering-daniel.
