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.
