On a beautiful sunny day we were delighted to welcome back OE’s Sue and Aiden Gribbin to the College. The Gribbin family lived on-site at St Edmund's with Bill a member of staff from 1968 to 1991 both as an English Teacher and Housemaster (Griffiths 1972-1984). Sue was the College Librarian and all nine children, including Aiden, attended the College.
Sue and Aiden brought with them a baby Oak tree, grown from an acorn collected by Bill whilst walking in the grounds of the College. Bill sadly passed away in December. The tree has been planted in the grounds of the College and we will think of Bill as we watch it grow.
Whilst they were here, Sue and Aiden also had the opportunity to see the tree that had been planted by Aiden in either 1973 or 1974 (there was some deliberation as to which year!) which sits proudly opposite the Elephant entrance.
