Chatback Response - Communal Cleaning in Halls
by Stephen Dixon - Thursday, 15 November 2018, 4:43 PM
 

Thanks for the Chatback response regarding cleaning in the communal areas of student halls. We used to offer cleaning of communal areas in halls such as the kitchen but this response has been a good prompt for us to look at the issue again. We're going to think things through in terms of costs and benefits and we'll get back to you. Thanks very much for bringing this to our attention.

Chatback Response - Cold Food in the Hub
by Stephen Dixon - Thursday, 15 November 2018, 4:27 PM
 

Thanks for the Chatback response regarding the food served in the Hub not being hot enough. We think the issue is with the cold crockery chilling the food and so we will now be heating up the plates and bowls for main meals. Thanks for bringing this to our attention and hopefully this fixes the problem.

Fancy some social crafting for a good cause?
by Alice Primmer - Wednesday, 14 November 2018, 3:32 PM
 

Would you like to learn how to knit? Already know how and want the opportunity for some dedicated knitting time?

Knit Club meets on Fridays between 1pm-2pm on the Library Ground Floor - we're looking to knit blanket squares for charity (a great beginner project!) and we can provide the yarn, the needles and some know-how to get you started. If you crochet, please do come along, but you'll need to bring your own hook and we also welcome those who just want some time to get on with their Christmas knitting :)

For more info, please email me at: aprimmer@marjon.ac.uk
