PETE IRVING, groundsman at the Oratory Prep School, was recognised for his 33 years’ service with the unveiling of the Irving Bell in the grounds.

The bell was given to the school in 1991 by Goring Cricket Club, where Mr Irving is also groundsman, as a thank-you.

At that time the club had no practice net so he arranged with then headmaster David Sexon, the club captain, for practice sessions to be held at the school.

Mr Irving said he was “completely taken aback” by the honour.
