ST AUSTIN'S TEA ON SUNDAY 26 APRIL FROM 3PM-6PM (RSVP by 20th April)
The Boarding House project at College is well under way, with St Helen’s being due to move out of their temporary accommodation in Bunwell in the summer holidays. At this point, we will be leaving St Austin’s and moving into the temporary accommodation in our turn, so that through the academic year 2015/16 St Austin’s can be stripped out and rebuilt internally. The work will be substantial and will result in a very new looking St Austin's – at least internally. We would love to invite all former St Austin's girls back for a final look at SA as it has been over the first 82 years that it has been in this building. Please do join us for tea, a good chance to catch up and a wander around the House. We are hoping that the weather will be lovely and that we will be able to have a real Garden Party atmosphere.
Please let us know if you can come and we will really look forward to seeing you.
Housemistress of St Austin’s since 2004
RSVP by 20th April 2015 to firstname.lastname@example.org
