Green Routes Walks

We are very excited to announce the start of our Green Routes walks. These are 45 minute stress-busting lunch time walks for staff and students to join. Each Friday we will start in a different building and take a different route for a gentle walk to get some fresh air, chat to new people and build some gentle exercise into our days (plus a much needed screen-break!!)
