Celebrating 40 Years at St Peter's

The end of Trinity term 2019 marked 40 years at St Peter's for the college's longest serving member of staff, Peter Minns.

Peter, who originally began work as a member of the hall staff, soon moved to work in the gardens, and has been Head Gardener for many years. His four decades at St Peter's has seen the coming and going of four Masters (he will soon welcome his fifth, in Prof Judith Buchanan), six bursars, hundreds of members of staff and fellows, and thousands of students.

Peter was recognised for his outstanding service to the college at this year's summer garden party, and was presented with a special commemorative sundial by the Master, Mark Damazer CBE.
