Come along to our weekly Gardening Club run. You will be able to learn gardening skills in these hands-on sessions. Activities will vary depend on the season but you will be able to help plant and maintain a vegetable patch and learn about the different plants and how to care for them. There will also be the opportunity to meet new people and enjoy the fresh air. This activity will run throughout the year and in times of bad weather we will explore other areas of gardening such as indoor planting and sowing seeds. Everything takes place on campus.
We run a number of activities to help you improve your wellbeing. All activities are free but do require booking. Have a look below at what we offer.
This year we're running weekly dog walks during term-time. Pets as Therapy (PAT) dogs will be joining us with their owners for a 45 minute stroll around campus. You will have the opportunity to meet some new people, get some fresh air and exercise and of course meet the PAT dogs.
Learn to cook some healthy and simple recipes from some of the University's qualified chefs. Classes may include watching a live demonstration or practicing some cooking skills. Classes will vary, some may consist of making a meal together (classes will cater for different skill levels) and eating it together! Others may show different types of skills such as bread making.
These include in-depth courses which last for a number of weeks such as those teaching mindfulness or managing anxiety and also short one-off workshops on topics such as sleep problems or stress.
All courses are currently online.
