Happy New Year to all our Neighbours!

The Chester Business School held Carol’s at Queen’s Park on Tuesday 15th December and many local residents accepted the invitation to come along and join in the carols and enjoy the festive refreshments. 

I enjoyed the chance to chat to local residents and many of them commented how much they had enjoyed the opportunity to come along to see the Business School.  Many of our guests took the opportunity to have impromptu tours of the Charles de Gaulle suite and to see the magnificent table.

On 21st December the University held a Christmas lunch for older residents of Chester who attend the Here and Now group in Blacon.  International students from India, Palestine and China came along to join in and to chat to our lunch guests.
This was a lovely festive event and started the Christmas week on a high note.

Chester Students' Union are holding their Accommodation Fair for students on 13th and 14th January and we will be promoting responsible behaviour while living in the Chester community during the Fair.  We will be giving out this handy post card guide to living in the community to students.

PC Tom Philpotts and PCSO Kirsty Lawrence will also be at the Fair promoting Student Safety and also providing some education on being good neighbours.
