So now I’ve seen the Coca-Cola advert I don’t know about everyone else but I think I am officially starting to feel festive. Tonight marks the start of Lincoln’s annual Christmas Market, which for me, also means Christmas is well and truly on it’s way. Myself and Nicola are taking a look at the market this evening, we’ve wrapped up extra warm & are armed with wellies in case snow decides to descend on Lincoln.
The market takes place in the historic uphill area of Lincoln with the cathedral and castle providing impressive grounds as it’s host. It boasts around 250 stalls, attracting visitors from all over the globe. Everything from traditional mulled wine and mince pies to carols and gifts will be on offer to the crowds. You can find out more information here and follow the Lincoln Christmas Market Elf on Twitter @lincolnelf for updates as it happens!
I cannot wait!
The Student Support Centre is joining in with the festivities with our very own Christmas tree and tinsel on the computers! The atrium in the Main Building has it’s very own and much bigger tree that I’m sure has put everyone in the Christmas spirit (pictures will follow shortly).
One part of our role at the moment is really adding to the Christmas spirit – you may be aware that we spent a long time processing our International student’s visa applications – well some of these are now in the final stages and the student’s can be given their visas so they can go home for Christmas! All very exciting and very satisfying to know we have helped make this happen for them.
It’s just over 2 weeks until staff at the university leave for the Christmas break – after a very busy first semester I think we all deserve the break & we’re all looking forward to 2013!
