The University of Buckingham played host to a very important visitor last week.

Buckingham ‘boy’ Bill Howkins, aged 97, was given the opportunity to visit his old house on Hunter Street, which he sold to the university about 35 years ago.

Bill, who lived at Prebend Cottage with his wife Rita from 1953 until around 1978, is a regular guest at the Buckingham Contact The Elderly tea parties.

It was there that he asked Kirsty Moors, who is one of the host/drivers for the charity and also works for the University, if it would be possible to arrange a visit to his former home.
