Annual staff picnic

Filed under: Networking & Collaboration — Tags: — Mohammed Alam @ 11:01 am

It’s that time again! I am pleased to announce this year’s staff picnic will be taking place at all three campuses and open to all staff.

You can find details for the three campuses below:


Colchester Campus: 

This year’s staff picnic will be taking place on Thursday 12 July 2018, from 1pm-2pm by the lakes near Wivenhoe House.

In order to help us stop duplicate bookings and ensure we order enough strawberries for everyone, we would be grateful if you could co-ordinate attendance numbers for your department/section or nominate someone in your place (please liaise with your school manager/ Head of section PA). If you are bringing children please supervise them at all times.

Please note that the nominated person will be responsible for the collection of your strawberries on the day.

Please email know how many staff will be attending with your picnic group no later than Friday 29 June 2018.  If you require access assistance please get in touch – there will also be a first-aider on site.


Southend Campus:

The next staff picnic will be held on Friday 13 July from 12.30pm – 2pm. Come along with your colleagues and enjoy this year’s picnic at Prittlewell Square Gardens (weather permitting). Strawberries will be provided! Please let the ground floor reception team know if you would like to attend by Friday 6 July. If the weather isn’t kind to us, the picnic will take place in the iLab on the 4th floor of The Gateway Building, where we will be able to watch some Wimbledon!


Loughton Campus:

The Loughton Campus will be celebrating the summertime with punnets of strawberries for staff to enjoy on Wednesday 11th July. Full details from Lindsay Rule will be circulated to Loughton staff a little nearer the time.
