On Saturday the 18th of April the Students' Union took a group of 47 student parents, their families, and children for a free trip to Blackberry Farm.
The group enjoyed a farm tour, which involved getting to feed lots of animals and holding some of the smaller ones.
The trip also involved a tractor ride around the farm, an outdoor play area with huge bouncy pillows (which amused the parents quite a lot), a zip wire, and swing boats.
This excursion was a great chance for student parents and their families to get off of campus and see some of our beautiful Sussex countryside.
Attendees from the Students' Union also took this opportunity to talk about the Student Parent Survey that was launched recently, which aims to try and find new ways that we can make student life better for student parents.
If you are a student parent then we’d be grateful if you could take 10 minutes to fill out our survey. On top of helping us help make life better for you, you can also be entered into a prize draw to win £50!
The Students' Union would like to thank the Alumni Fund for providing the money to enable this trip.

Each month your full-time officers get together to look at what comments you have submitted to the Loop over the past month. These are categorised into what is going well, what is going less well, and ideas for improvement. This feedback is acted upon: specific comments are sent to the University to inform their service and to take action if necessary.
