DT1: New chairman for Old Hardyeans
12:37pm Wednesday 16th October 2013 in News
RETIRED banker and businessman Godfrey Lancashire has been elected as chairman of the Old Hardyeans, the old boys association for the old Dorchester Grammar School, Hardye’s School and the existing Thomas Hardye School.
He follows in the footsteps of popular predecessor Colin Lucas, who died recently.
Mr Lancashire was born in the county town and went to Hardye’s School from 1958 to 1966. He worked with Barclays Bank in London before starting his own company, London House International Ltd before retiring to Askerswell in April.
Mr Lancashire said: “I hope we can build on the great work carried out by Colin Lucas and council colleagues.
“As we move forward, I hope we can be a little more inclusive of the younger generations of leavers and it would be lovely to see some girls as well as boys playing a more active role in club activities.”
Old Hardyeans’ secretary Michel Hooper-Immins said: “We welcome Godfrey Lancashire as chairman, knowing he intends to forge closer ties between the modern Thomas Hardye School and the Old Hardyeans.
“His lifetime’s experience in corporate and private business will be a great benefit to us.”
