Sidney Sussex College MCR

Committee members

We are the current Sidney Sussex MCR committee for 2021-22. We not only organise a lot of social and welfare events for you but also sit in on college committees and the SU and are your contact people for anything you’d like to raise with them. 

Please get in touch with any of us if you have any questions or concerns. We also have some unoccupied committee roles so also get in touch if you are interested in joining us!

The Sidney Sussex MCR is governed by a constitution which can be read here: Sidney Sussex MCR Constitution.

You can find more information about what we do on the Sidney Sussex Website.

He is a self confessed 'rowing nut' and National Rowing Umpire and in the first year of his PhD he coached Sidney Sussex Men's First Eight. Before coming to Cambridge, Tony was at Oxford where he read English (when not rowing) also as a mature student and following that an MA in Medieval Studies is from the University of Reading. Prior to moving to the 'dark side' of medievalism, Tony was a computer scientist for more years than he cares to remember.
