Don’t panic! That noise is just the College trialling its safety procedures
It’s not an air raid, or the Three Minute Warning, but the College’s new emergency siren.
In a brief statement issued under the heading Press Announcement for the Local Community, the College explained: “Marlborough College is installing a siren as part of its emergency planning.
“The siren will be tested this week and thereafter a practice drill will take place two or three times per year.
“In the event of a real emergency, the police and relevant local authorities will be informed.”
