UCS selects honorary graduates

ACTOR David Croft, Suffolk-based pig farmer Jimmy Doherty and radio presenter Mark Murphy are among the a host of well-known names selected by University Campus Suffolk to receive honorary degrees.

The trio, along with hotel inspector Ruth Watson, champions of higher education Robert Mee and Elizabeth Milburn, will receive accolades at formal ceremonies to be held across Suffolk and Great Yarmouth.

A spokesperson for UCS said: “UCS is looking forward to recognising the achievements of its students and welcoming them to their official ceremonies.”

The ceremonies will take place between September 25 and November 4, where graduating students will be honoured for their achievements.

David Croft, writer, producer and actor, is to be honoured for services to entertainment - having produced and co-written a string of hit BBC sitcoms including Dad’s Army, Are You Being Served?, It Ain’t Half Hot Mum, Hi-de-Hi! and ‘Allo ‘Allo.
