Join the Santa Shuffle!
We’re launching a series of lunchtime walks for students and staff, taking in the beautiful university grounds and surrounding countryside.
On December 6th we will be starting with The Santa Shuffle. Wrap up warm, pop a Santa hat on (provided) and enjoy the wealth of health and wellbeing benefits you get from a brisk walk. There will be a 1, 2 or 3 mile option, with the 3 mile option taking about an hour. Meet at Front Reception at 12.20 for a 12.30 start.
We’ll be providing tea, coffee, ginger biscuits and mince pies back at the RAU to warm you up after. If you don’t fancy the walk you can pop along to the coffee stand in the main dining room at 1.30. All proceeds from this event will be donated to the RAG charity Mind.

All of this whilst still working with the students on their product development projects!
For those of you yet to book the annual departmental Christmas meal, Mike and Jo) are offering something refreshingly different to the traditional turkey at extremely reasonable prices - £12.50 for two courses. Better still, organise a party for ten or more people and the organiser gets their meal for free! Please see the attached menu for more information.
All Christmas parties will entail full table service in a private dining room. Both Mike and Jo are looking forward to providing you with their home cooked fayre in a relaxed but more formal environment – a nice change from their usual informal service style!
The menu will be available from Monday 28th November through to Friday 16th December, but places are limited, so don’t delay, book your table today! - Proposed Christmas Menu 2016
