News – March 2015

Edward Gairdner (StB’91) and his wife Lizzie are delighted to announce the birth of Matilda (Tilly) Beatrice Gairdner on Monday 23rd March.  We wish them all many congratulations!


Saturday 21st March 2015, the Feast of St Benedict, saw the Ordination of Br Gabriel Dobson into the priesthood. Several Worthians joined the School and Parish  in the Abbey to celebrate a wonderful day for the Monastic Community.


It is with much sadness that we have been informed of the death of Nicholas Sharman (StB’78) who passed away on 5th March 2015.  We send his family, particularly his brothers Jeremy (StB’80) and Charles (StB’84), our love and prayers.


Not one but two Worthians were shortlisted for the UK Press Awards at Grosvenor Square Hotel on 10th March and BOTH were Highly Commended on the night!  Dan Hyde (StB’05) was  one of six contenders for Specialist Journalist of the Year and Joshi Herrmann (R’05) one of six for Feature Writer of the Year – Pop.  Huge congratulations to both!
