Welcomed by the College Chaplain, Revd Antony Weiss, on Friday and Warden, Revd Dr Ed Loane, on Saturday both nights were a joyous celebration of mothers and motherhood. Toasts were proposed on Friday by Jonah O’Sullivan, Simon Toscan and the Vice Warden, TJ Christie, on Friday and Tom Nivison, Sophie Jeffries and the Warden on Saturday with responses from Mrs Melinda Toscan and Mrs Naomi Jeffries respectively. Highlights included musical performances by jazz combo Max Phillips, Ben Varella, Charlie Smith (Friday) and Michael Dowe on guitar and vocals (Saturday)
