Minutes of the meeting of the Kingham Hillians' Committee held on Saturday 27 September 2014 in the Archive Room.

Before the meeting started, Harriet introduced Jennifer Robinson (Jenna) who is dealing with the work in the Development Office whilst Harriet is on maternity leave, from October 2014 until June 2015. Chris Aston, newly appointed Housemaster of Norwich, stopped by before the meeting to introduce himself to the committee. He will be in charge of co-ordinating the Rugby fitness and liaising with the Wasps R.F.C. who are helping with coaching this season. Chris spoke to the Committee and stated he had been given a warm welcome into the school and looked forward to building up the Rugby team's confidence in the coming season with some hard fixtures ahead.

Following the resignation of Simon Howlett as Chairman of the Kingham Hill Association on 1 December 2013, a representation from the committee met with the Headmaster and Development Officer on 16 January to discuss the future of the KHA and its Centenary Trust Fund.

As stated at the AGM on 18 May 2013, the KHA accepts that the school has decided to take total responsibility for alumni relations and communications. Furthermore, the committee has recently considered that it would not be appropriate to continue to seek donations in competition with KHS for bursaries. It was therefore proposed that further invitations for donations to the CTF would cease. Awards for bursaries from the fund would continue to be made until the fund was exhausted. If donations continued to arrive, these would be accepted.

Suffolk lunch June smlOn Sunday 2nd June, a group of KHS Old Boys who live in the East Anglia region met for a lunch reunion at the White Horse Inn in Whepstead. It was a wonderful opportunity for members of the Kingham Hill community to come together, renew acquaintes and form new friendships over a pint of Suffolk ale and some excellent food.
