Life Membership: John Cramp

Awarded 2007

John was nominated for his longstanding contribution to U3A City as both an occasional tutor and valued participant in music and Shakespeare courses.

As fellow classmates wrote- John has only recently retired due to ill health. He has been a real stalwart in the Shakespeare course, bringing to bear his wide-ranging interests, his encyclopaedic reading and his dry sense of humour to every class he attended. He was a member of the earlier U3A Shakespeare course and, in fact, began his association with Elizabethan Theatre shortly after World War 11.

They also noted he had conducted a course on Wagner, and actively contributed to other music courses.

Based on this contribution to U3A City, John Cramp was awarded Life Membership in 2007.
