Association of London Graduates & Students' evening lecture

NEXT WEEK'S Association of London Graduates & Students' evening lecture by Roger Davies on the restoration of Windsor Castle after the fire is being dedicated to Tony O'Hare, who suffered a major stroke while presenting a paper on communication skills at the ALGS' residential course last summer.

O'Hare was self employed and doing a great deal of work for Thomas Telford Training on improving communication skills for engineers. Now he is confined to a wheelchair and is struggling through what is likely to be a long, slow rehabilitation process. There will be a raffle and collection during the evening for him.

The lecture in the Telford Theatre, at 6.00 for 6.30 on Wednesday 15 April, promises to give an inside view of the painstaking restoration at Windsor. This involved major replacement and construction of entirely new structures in masonry and oak supporting the brilliant work of the finishing trades and decorators which is now open to public view at Windsor.

Davies of Gifford & Partners was responsible for design and analysis of the structures. Contractor Higgs & Hills' site manager Phil Rowley who brought the structural and trade skills together at the castle will also be on hand at the lecture to answer questions.
