12-18 July: The big stories
It’s a perfect ten for University Park after the 330 acre campus is awarded its tenth consecutive Green Flag Award, which recognises the nation’s best public parks and green spaces. There’s also Olympic news with medics, researchers, graduates and students from the University gearing up to support the smooth running of London 2012. Plus, after the success of last year’s event, there’s news of Life Cycle 2.
Green Flag Awards recognise the nation’s best public parks and green spaces. Nottingham’s 330-acre University Park was the first campus to win one in 2003 and every year since.
A team of 20 University of Nottingham medics, researchers, graduates and students will be on duty at the Olympic Games.
After raising over £230,000 in 2011, Nottingham’s Vice-Chancellor and 11 staff will get on their bikes again for Life Cycle 2. Funds raised will help more young people enter higher education.
Students once again show sporting prowess, dominating prize categories at the British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) Awards 2012.
