Hello, how are things?

Let’s hear a loud WAHOOOO for that!

National Student Money Week 2013 Showcase Partners

This was fantastic news especially as it started to generate interest in the event from other staff within the University. In fact the Vice Chancellor of the University Mary Stuart even contacted us to pass on her congratulations and best wishes for the event. It was great to get her support plus the other congratulations we received. The pressure’s on for creating an engaging and popular week especially as it’s a brand new event for the University; no-one has attempted to cover it before! Continue reading

Full steam ahead…

Good morning bloggers 🙂

Although it is a wet & miserable Friday, the campus has transformed into something a little more exciting than usual. The University is playing host to the National Fire and Rescue Challenge Competition – 130 teams from across the country are competing in a range of simulated rescues. As I type, I can see two men dangling from our office by some rope – beats the grey skies and muddy puddles! Nic and I are keen to get some photos, which we will of course share with you all… Continue reading

Money, money, money!

Think Tank

Hello blogging world, I have returned from Northern Spain and it appears the sun has finally followed me back to the flat lands of Lincolnshire.
