Thanksgiving service for Cheltenham Training College


This year is the 175th anniversary of the founding of Cheltenham Training College, one of the foundations of the current university, and we’re holding a Thanksgiving Service to celebrate 175 years of teaching and learning. Bishop Robert will be giving the address, and Martin Houghton-Brown, CEO of St. John’s Ambulance, will be sharing memories of the college. We’ll be gathering in the University Chapel at Francis Close Hall at 2.30pm on Weds 29th June, followed by the planting of a celebration tree and then tea and cakes (of course!). We would love it if you were able to join us. if so, please book on Eventbrite using the link here – and please also pass this information on to others who might be interested.
