University Community Warden teams welcomes new 'sub'

Loughborough University’s pioneering Community Warden team has the welcome addition of a new ‘sub’.

Faye Powell has been appointed to the role of sub warden for the Storer and Burleigh area. She follows in the footsteps of successful sub warden Kate Sang, who relinquished her duties in order to concentrate on other professional commitments.

The role of the sub warden for the Storer and Burleigh area is to assist the community warden in liaising with students and permanent residents of the area in order to promote good relationships between the groups. For students they offer support, advice and information and respond to any incidents or disciplinary issues that may arise. For residents they provide a point of contact to ask questions or raise concerns.

Faye is a PhD student working in the Department of Human Sciences, within the University’s Centre for Research into Eating Disorders. She has been at Loughborough since 2005, where she joined the same department as an undergraduate. For two of her undergraduate years she lived in the Storer area of town so has a knowledge and understanding of the area and recent experience of living in a student household. Her personal interests include equestrianism and kick boxing.

Faye comments: “I am looking forward to being part of a team that continues to provide such a valuable service to students and permanent residents alike.”

The community warden role was first introduced by the University in 2001. It is thought to be the only scheme of its kind in the UK. The full team of community wardens at the University is now:

Commenting on the new appointment, Adrian Bailey, community warden, said: “The University is delighted to welcome Faye to the community warden team. She joins a small team helping university students feel safe and comfortable in their communities, and helping permanent residents feel unthreatened and able to welcome their temporary neighbours. The effects of a high proportion of students within an area has been recognised nationally, and the team work hard to promote good lines of communication between all concerned – students, permanent residents, the Police, Charnwood Borough Council and the University.”
