Video of Rector Cairncross’s farewell
Members of the Exeter College community who did not get to see Rector Cairncross depart Exeter in a stylish 1931 Rolls-Royce may like to see this video of the occasion, made by Exonian Sung Hee Kim (2001, English).
Rector Cairncross left Exeter on 30 September, chauffeur-driven in her cousin’s 1931 Rolls-Royce Barker Bodied 20/25 Town Limousine.
Students, Fellows and staff came to wave her farewell as she pulled away in the vintage car.
On leaving, Ms Cairncross said: “I am sad to be leaving this wonderful College after ten happy years. I have enormously enjoyed the friendship and support of the Fellows, alumni, staff and students.
“I am very happy to be leaving Exeter in the capable hands of Rick Trainor, and to be heading for an interesting new life in London and Scotland.”
