John with current and retired members of the Committee
Emeritus Professor John Tarn has stepped down from his role as Chairman of the Friends of the University of Liverpool after 12 years.
A celebration to mark the event took place at the Vice-Chancellors Lodge, and was attended by staff and students, grant recipients and current and retired members of the Friends Committee.

The Vice-Chancellor presented John with a personalised book containing messages and memories from members of the Friends and past grant applicants and a framed photo of the Victoria Gallery & Museum.
John said: “The evening was a pleasure from start to finish, it was lovely to see so many recipients of our grants and their enthusiasm for what we have done was a joy to see, the gifts will be a very happy memento of my 12 years in the Chair, thank you to all involved very much indeed.”
Dan Hibbert and his Formula Student team, who attended, said: “The committee have been awarding grants for a number of years for Formula Student, the most recent one of £7,000 for equipment for the Dedicated Testing Area and Engine Workshop which has helped tremendously.”
