The English UK office will be closed from 2pm GMT today as we attend a memorial service to celebrate the life of our late Chief Executive Eddie Byers with staff, colleagues, friends and family.
All colleagues, friends and family are welcome at the service, which will be held at St James Church in Clerkenwell, London, at 2pm today, Wednesday 20 January.
We hope this memorial service will allow many more industry colleagues to remember Eddie formally than was possible at his funeral, which was held at the end of November in his home town of St Andrews.
English UK and the Byers family are also working together to create an in memoriam scholarship fund as a lasting tribute to Eddie. The scheme will give deserving students the chance to study English in the UK. We will share further details on how to contribute soon.
