Dr Andrew Murrison MP (Hughes 1995 DPH) and President Anthony Freeling launched the Gresham Road campaign in the House of Commons on 12th March, joined by over 70 Hughes alumni. Dr Murrison, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Northern Ireland Office, addressed the gathering, commenting that he was greatly impressed by the new £12m development of 85 student rooms on Gresham Road and noted its great strategic significance to the College, enabling Hughes to take full advantage of the great sward of Fenner’s cricket field. President Anthony Freeling emphasised the significance of the project as Hughes Hall sought to build a stronger and closer academic community for a College which had now grown to greater than average size for a Cambridge College. A highly enjoyable evening was brought to a fitting conclusion when Fellow William Charnley decided, with typical generosity, to name a room in the new building for £5000.
