SOUE News Issue 6


We congratulate Peter Lund on the award of an MBE in the New Year's Honours List, for "Services to the community in Oxfordshire". The local newspaper was a little more explicit, and explained that Peter has been the organiser of the Best Kept Village competition for Oxfordshire Rural Community Council, and it quoted him as saying "Like many of these things, the honour really belongs to other people and I seem to be the lucky one who had his name put forward".

For the benefit of younger members who may not have known him, Peter was a lecturer in the Department, and engineering tutor at Christ Church, for many decades before his retirement in the early 1990s, and was SOUE Secretary from 1991 to 2004.
