The 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 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.



Rich first came to Manor in 2011 and has served as Secretary both on the Junior Common Room Committee and this year, the Association itself. His greatest contribution, however, has been his devoted work towards Manor Amateur Dramatics. He was instrumental in the success of the most recent performances of ‘And Then There Were None’ and ‘Road’ and is producing this years production of ‘Mostellaria’. With this award we recognise, celebrate and thank his loyalty and hard-work for the Hall and its members. Congratulations Rich.
