The Old Brightonians office is very sad to announce the death of Clive Nicholls QC (Ch. 1946-50) twin brother of Colin Nicholls QC (Ch. 1946-50). Colin informed us earlier in the week and sent us the following notes to share with the OB community. There will be a private funeral with only family flowers, but a memorial service will be held in London later in the year. Messages of condolence can be sent to the OB office and we will pass them on to the family. Our thoughts are with the family at this difficult time.

My name is Josh Stirling, I attended Brighton College for five years, leaving in 2015. I am currently at the University of Kent, and am about to embark in a charity event called Jailbreak. The idea is that you travel as far away as possible from the university, without any financial aid, with a group of friends, in 36 hours. The winner's are the group who raise the most money, or who travel the furthest distance.
If you are planning a visit to Brighton and would like a tour of the College and your old House, it is much better to contact us first so that we can be prepared for your arrival and have the time to show you around properly.
We are always delighted to see OBs back at the College but it can be disappointing for both you and us if we cannot allocate enough time to your visit due to other commitments. These days we are governed by strict health and safety laws, safeguarding and security measures which mean that visitors have to be accompanied around the campus.
These rules apply as much in the holidays as in term time as the College has various commercial lettings involving large numbers of children. It is a frustrating situation for all of us when you are not able to see all that you want to, and we would appreciate your consideration in helping us make it easier for you.
Please telephone Angelina in the OB office to let us know when you would like to visit on 01273 704 226.
