29 July 2017: College Fun-Day

Day of activities, music, entertainment as a 'thank you' to all our College staff

The College invited ALL STAFF and their families to attend a picnic and fun-day on the University’s main campus to celebrate our year of successes!

This took place on Saturday 29 July 2017 between 11am and 4pm on the Fielding Johnson Building lawn and event space. The weather remained kind after a precarious week leading up to the event, and there was a good turn-out as staff brought their whole families and even dogs attended. Surgeons tried their hands at the game of Giant Operation, and the giant games of Connect 4, Kerplunk, Jenga and Splat the Rat were enjoyed by young and old alike. Unfortunately for him, our Head of College did try his hand at all of the above and didn't manage to win any!

Children were able to bounce away the day on a choice of two bouncy castles, as well as bring treated to Mad Science activities and a stage show and a separate craft table. Popcorn, candy floss and slush drinks were enjoyed all day long, and Livi the face-painter stayed overtime to provide some beautiful artwork on the children's faces - and the faces of staff too! Leicester Fire Service enjoyed the free candyfloss while entertaining our families, and the Police were on hand too, enjoying mingling with the crowd.

All this was enjoyed to the backdrop of the Oadby and Wigston Scout Band, who provided brass and wind music throughout the day.

All in all, an enjoyable day! Thank you to those who came and helped make this a memorable occasion.
