Our year-round staff programme

As staff begin to return to campus, some team building time can be a great way to reconnect with colleagues and meet new members of the team - who may have started during the pandemic and never met in person! We can organise fun and informal wellbeing activities for teams and departments using our indoor and outdoor facilities - just get in touch to find out more.
