College Events – 22-06-2021 to 27-06-2021


Dear all
With the majority of exams now over, we can all look forward to relaxing and celebrating, whilst being mindful of Anthony’s recent email urging caution.  Hopefully the events below – together with a few more currently being finalised –  will strike a happy balance, and continue to offer students a chance to socialise, within a COVID secure environment. Keep an eye out for further updates from the MCR.
