OF made a Life Peer

OF made a Life Peer

On 9 February 2024 it was announced by the Government that John Fuller OBE (S78-86) was to be made a Conservative Life Peer.  You can read his updated Distinguished biography by clicking here.

I think I’m right in saying that he is the first OF to be made a Life Peer since Alistair Cooke OBE (K55-63) in November 2010 and now becomes the 4th OF to be awarded a peerage.

On 12 March 2024 it was announced that he has taken the title of Baron Fuller of Gorleston-on-Sea – the town in which he grew up. He said  “I was born in Great Yarmouth, but my family home was in Gorleston. It’s where I grew up and my parents still live there, so I wanted to recognise that. Although I’ve settled in Brooke, Gorleston and Great Yarmouth are where my roots are.
