Give us a smile! :)

Hiya,
Happy New Year everyone!

I always find it strange saying Happy New Year after the initial New Year celebrations, it’s like when is the actual cut off point to stop saying it? It must be soon because we’re like 2 weeks in now! But anyway I’ve said it now!

I hope you all managed to get some kind of a break and all managed to make the most of Christmas… I know I did, I definitely think I ate my own body weight in food and more haha! Eating Turkey sandwiches for days.

Anyway I know that January is everyone’s favourite month… with all the deadlines and exams 🙁 and on top of that trying to keep your New Year resolutions! Dry January? Joining a gym? Healthy eating? Spend less? … Bleugh! No seriously we can do this!

A new building, a new era

So this week we finally got underway with our greatly anticipated move over from our old offices in ‘the street’ to our new offices on the top floor of ‘the hub’. With the new shop on the bottom floor opening tomorrow (Wednesday 14th) and the terrace set to re-open at some point later this week the hub is really starting to come to life. Already we’ve had various members of the Edge Hill community coming in to explore the hub and have a look round the new Students’ Union space, all that we need now is a crowning event to get a real buzz and positive atmosphere running through the building, and I have no doubt that the freshers fair on the Wednesday of freshers week will meet that need in superb fashion, if you only do anything during freshers week, make sure it’s that!

 

Looking forward to seeing you all soon!
