A 1st for Brighton Visitor Information Centre

Well, we think we might be the first in the country, or possibly the world, to have a Visitor Information Centre staff member, with a 1st from Oxford University! Robert, one of our seasonals found out last night he was one of only 2 people in his college to get a 1st in English Language and Literature. That makes him just a teensy weensy bit brainy! He's also a lovely guy and deserves it, so if you see someone in Brighton VIC over the next few days floating on a small cloud with a massive grin on his face, that'll be Robert. Oh and his Mum is a bit pleased too!

Incidentally, that puts Robert among 25 British Prime Ministers, 30 international leaders, 47 Nobel Prize winners, six current holders of the Order of Merit, 6 kings, 12 saints and 20 Archbishops of Canterbury, and at least 9 Olympic medal winners, who were also products of Oxford!

Robert isn't sure what he's going to do yet post the VIC, but we've only got him for the summer, so if you want to catch a possible future mover and shaker, pop in and see him and the team.

Phooey - John, our marketing manager and me were quite chuffed with our 2.1s from Bournemouth and Exeter until about an hour ago! Thanks a lot Robert!
