Live Well, Be Safe Event

Every October we hold an annual safety and well being event! This years event was great! 

The aim of this event is to bring together our partner organisations to deliver a range of activities and provide advice and information to the university community on the themes of safety, sustainability and wellbeing. The event is open to both staff and students and will be a great oppurtunity to find out more about support and what's happening both on campus and in the local area. 

What you can expect from the event:

  • A free cup of Fairtrade coffee to enjoy while you have a look around the marquee 
  • Register and mark your bike with bikeregister for FREE - helping to protetc it from theft (students)
  • Once registered, pick up a FREE (yes FREE) police approved D Lock for your bike (students) 
  • Smoothie bikes (race your friend and cycle your way to a free smoothie!)
  • Second hand bike sale – pick up a bargain to get you to and from campus
  • Demonstrations from your local Fire Service – exactly HOW do firefighters free somebody from a car after a collision?
