Friends’ Projects

Washing machines

The amount of laundry at the College had ensured demise of the domestic washing machines, and it was decided to buy two new industrial-sized  machines (below), even though this took most of our funds. Following this decision the Friends received a generous gift of money to acquire one of the machines.


Oriel window

Restoration work on the oriel window (below)  was necessary for safety as well as aesthetic reasons. The work has been completed with financial assistance from the Friends.


Bosendorfer Grand Piano
