During the country's initial lockdown; Old Churcherian and long-standing supporter of the school, Commander William (Bill) Evershed (55), contacted the Headmaster to offer his OCC blazer badge to the school archive. As a reflection of Bill’s continued support and his service in the Royal Navy, it was decided to incorporate the badge into the new ‘Commander Bill Evershed Award’ with Churcher’s Design and Technology department crafting the final trophy.

The award was presented before 'lockdown 2' during a regular Tuesday afternoon CCF parade. The new annual award will be presented to a senior Cadet of the Royal Naval section of the Churcher’s College Combined Cadet Force each year in recognition of the time and commitment they have given to the CCF and the role model they are for the lower ranks.

Congratulations to Josiah Wilson for becoming the first recipient of the award.
