Encaenia Drinks and Prizegiving


On Wednesday 20 June the College held a drinks reception in the quad to coincide with Encaenia, the University's annual celebration. It provided the perfect opportunity to celebrate our prizewinners this year, and for Carole to present each of the winners with their certificates. 

Thank you to all who attended and helped to make the event such a success.
