In order to recognise those planning to remember the School in their will we have established the 1807 Society, named for the year in which the School was founded. Each year, those in the 1807 Society will be invited to a private lunch. This gives the Foundation the chance to thank them personally for their support and for members to learn first hand the benefits such gifts can provide. 

On June 12th, this year's lunch took place at the magnificent Painters' Hall in the heart of London. It was a wonderful occasion which gave us a chance to spend time with some of Mill Hill School's most impactful supporters. 

Outgoing Director of Development, Nick Priestnall, asked attendees to take a moment’s silence to remember two Society members who had died since the the last lunch – John Elliott (School, 1955) and Geoffrey Vero (Weymouth, 1965). He described them as generous and important supports of the establishment of the Development Office who would be fondly remembered and much missed. Nick also introduced his successor Natalie Joseph and invited people to make her feel welcome. Peter Wakeham paid tribute to the contribution Nick has made to the Foundation over 13 years.
Over coffee the Beadle of the Painter-Stainers Company provided an entertaining history of the Company and the Hall.
