On 21st July 2009 Lianne Fleet, aged 21, an ex student of Battle Abbey School, graduated from the prestigious Royal Veterinary College (RVC) with a BSc(Hons) Degree in BioVeterinary Science. Watching the ceremony which was held at the magnificent Guildhall in London were Lianne’s proud parents Kevin & Amanda who live in Brede with their other two children James (18) and George (6). Lianne is at present only one of two students chosen to work a summer studentship at Pfizer a leading pharmaceutical company, in Sandwich Kent, which is the company’s European Headquarters for Research & Development. Lianne, granddaughter of local businessman Ted Fleet, will then be returning to RVC in September for a Post Graduate Masters Degree in Veterinary Epidemiology and hopes to achieve a doctorate and pursue a career in Biological R&D.
