 Professor Sir Liam Donaldson

The Former Chief Medical Officer (67-69)

For me, Wills was much more than a place to stay, much more than a temporary billet to be quickly forgotten, much more than an enclave of cliques and fragmented groups going their own way. It was a genuine and rock-solid community where friendships were forged and character was formed.

 The Association exists to keep our several hundred members in touch with Wills Hall and with their friends and contemporaries. We also help to facilitate action in any matter concerning the needs and wellbeing of Wills Hall. Membership can be a way of making contacts across a wide range of work sectors. We keep members up to date with current developments affecting hall. A strong membership provides a strong advocacy of hall life in the university and wider afield.

For more details about what we do and what we offer members as well as how to join the Association please explore the site using the menu above.

"Old Wills Gin"

The Wills Hall Association have commissioned a special gin to celebrate 90 years of Wills Hall. Our partners in this venture are Psychopomp, a microdistillery on St. Michael's Hill just behind the University. The base of the gin is the usual juniper and coriander, and the root we opted for was liquorice -- and there is a real hint of that on the nose (not so much as to put anyone off who hated Bassetts Liquorice Allsorts when a child!). The dominant theme is "trees and shrubs" rather than flowers -- there is apple-wood in there, hawthorn, and elder, and that gives the gin some rich robustness. It's a gin with real backbone. It's not obviously flowery at all, but there are notes of rose and  lavender. All these grow on the Downside estate (around Wills Hall) and are clearly visible to residents. The suggestions for ingredients were made by Alan Stealey, Head of Estates. This email address is being protected from spambots.
