With the darker nights approaching, cycle safety should be top of your agenda if you plan on travelling to work by bike over the autumn and winter months. To stay safe on the road, you should be fully kitted up with a helmet, high visibility clothing and lights on your bike. Make sure that you use cycle routes were available and be mindful of other road users and pedestrians.

The award-winning feature length documentary, How to Change the World, focuses on Greenpeace’s formation, and in particular, on one of our founders, Bob Hunter. Director of the film, Jerry Rothwell, uses dramatic archive footage that has not been shown for over 40 years, and transforms it into a gripping, vivid and often-thrilling film.

The film is set to premier on Wednesday 9 September, followed by a panel discussion and Q&A broadcast via satellite to over 140 cinemas across the country. As one of our supporters this will be an amazing opportunity to this unmissable event at your local cinema.

Fruit Routes are making preparations for this year’s harvest festival on campus. Blackberries, plums, apples and pears are all beginning to ripen. You can get involved in the harvest at one of the fruit picking events and take home as much fruit as you like.
