Not a silly walk – just a slow procession.

29010-0908Just in case you missed all the processional pomp and ceremony around the Guildhall and Bath Abbey today……it was graduation day for a lot of students at the University of Bath and a lot of proud parents busy taking photos of their offspring.


Your Director was trying to catch glimpses of the three personalities getting Honorary Doctorates from the University – starting this morning with Sir Bobby Charlton.

I couldn’t resist telling him we could have done with his help against Iceland.


Bath’s former MP Don Foster


Later in the day l said hello to Bath’s former MP Don Foster and swapped a few stories about our joint hometown of Weston super Mare with John Cleese.

He was born at Uphill where l went to school.



A wave for Bath from John Cleese.


Lovely to see everyone in such a good humour and that goes for the University’s Chancellor HRH Prince Edward too.

Well done Bath University and congratulations to all.
