Dear Friends

We are grateful to have such a loyal and supportive group of students, alumni and visitors. With your support, Sarum can continue to nourish the human spirit for the foreseeable future.

That support can be very simple. Personal recommendation is one of the most powerful ways any organisation can reach new people. If everyone who received this e-mail forwards it to just one person who has never been to Sarum before, we would introduce Sarum to more than five thousand new people.

The New Year is a time when many people consider engaging in new learning opportunities. Why not forward this to a friend - or a group of friends - and make them aware of what Sarum has to offer? It's an effective way of supporting the College and helping others enrich their lives. Anyone who wishes to continue to receive the newsletter, can simply reply to this e-mail or click this link.

With continued thanks and warmest regards,



The Revd Canon Dr James Woodward
Principal, Sarum College
