Elton House Award

Each year, up to two members of the Association are awarded the prestigious Elton House Award for outstanding service to the Manor Hall community. Nominated by their peers, award winners are recognised as pillars of the Hall and through this award we are able to give a little back in thanks of their efforts.

Among other things, the recipients will receive three years free membership of the MHA. Nominations are accepted in the summer term and the winner announced at the end of the year.

The name of the award comes from the precursor to the Manor Hall Association, The Elton House Association which was founded in 1925. Elton House was one of the all-female student houses that were merged in 1932 to create Manor Hall. The rest, as they say, is history.


Robert Worboys
Senior Resident

Rob came to Manor Hall as a Senior Resident in 2015 whilst studying for a PhD in Advanced Composites. He was an essential member of the Hall's pastoral team and also had responsibility as the Senior Resident for Manor Amateur Dramatics, which under his guidance continued the strong tradition of amateur dramatics in Manor Hall and coordinated a number of exceptional productions. His nominees said they 'could not imagine the Hall without his contribution'. 

Michael Sheridan-Warburton

Michael came to Manor Hall as a first-year undergraduate in 2015 and has thrown himself into every aspect of Hall life in music, drama, charity and in his second year, became President of the Junior Common Room, coordinating a varied and popular events programme which appealed to all members of our community. Over the summer, he also volunteered at the Heswall Disabled Children's Holiday Camp, the Association's nominated charity which has had a long association with Manor Hall.
