Sir Roderick's Retirement

Professor Sir Roderick Floud, a Haddenham resident, recently retired as Provost of Gresham College, London.

His retirement was marked by a dinner at Mercers' Hall in the City of London hosted by Ms Debbie Ounsted, the first woman Master of the Mercers' Company since its foundation in 1394, and attended by the Rt.Hon. the Lord Mayor, Alderman Fiona Woolf, herself only the second woman Lord Mayor of London since the office was instituted in 1189.

Gresham College, which was founded in 1597 under the will of Sir Thomas Gresham (whose portrait is shown in the background) provides free public lectures in the City of London and on the internet at www.gresham.ac.uk
