On Wednesday the 8th of April, around 35 student parents and their children met in the newly-refurbished Family Room for a Spring Gathering event.
Children were encouraged to engage in spring crafts, and also to hunt for chocolate eggs in the ever-popular Easter Egg hunt around the garden.
Parents took the time to converse with each other, and also with Union officers and members of staff. Attendees enjoyed lots of tea, cake, and other refreshments.
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 and Community Social Fund for providing the funds to enable this event to go ahead.
