A new Association

The Launch of the RSA took place on Friday 24th October 2008 at 17.00h in the Hunterian Museum.  (See pictures) Over 130 retired staff and their spouses were welcomed by the Principal, Sir Muir Russell.  We enjoyed musical entertainment, a montage of GU-related images from Lesley Richmond (the University Archivist) and wine and nibbles. Robin Leake gave more details  of activities open to retired staff under the RSA umbrella. Click here to see his presentation as a pdf file (needs Acrobat reader.)
