The Eastbournian Society brings together Eastbourne College’s extended family of Old Eastbournians, current and former parents and staff, local people and businesses and other friends and supporters. Our aim is to maintain close links with any person or organisation who wishes to be associated with the College.


22 May 2017 - The Eastbournian Society Over-60s lunch

Our annual lunch for OEs and other members of the Eastbournian Society was held on Monday 22 May.

We were grateful once again to Peter Jamieson (Blackwater 1960-63) who hosted the event at St George's Hill Club in Weybridge, where he is the chairman.

The guest speaker was Torin Douglas (Gonville 1964–69), former media correspondent for BBC News, who was awarded the MBE in 2013 for services to the community in Chiswick, where he runs the annual book festival and other arts events.

In his speech Torin gave an insider's view of the BBC, with some candid observations of the working of the organisation.

Torin is pictured here, third from right, with some of the other lunch guests.
