We are delighted to be in contact with more Guild members than ever before and we hope that you feel encouraged to get in touch with us and with each other. Recent attendance at Guild events has been increasing, with some very positive responses to new formats and themes for different gatherings. We have been pleased to help re-connect old friends for ‘milestone’ birthdays and the like, as well as providing a hospitality venue for private Guild bookings and celebrations. Do bear us in mind if you feel Cheltenham might be an attractive option for you in this regard; our catering team regularly support the commercial use of our facilities (including the Council Room and the Princess Hall) for a variety of both large and more intimate functions and they particularly enjoy the occasion if it involves Guild.
We have a unique and cherished pioneering heritage as a girls’ school, not least for the achievements of so many of you as our alumnae. It is clear from the response of many who meet you that your own lives and perspectives continue to provide inspiration for others.
On behalf of all the girls and staff of College, we hope that this is a positive year for you and those whom you love.
