At the end of July I went to the Hazards Conference down at Keele Uni as one of the Unison Fife representatives. I've written about the conference over on the Unison Fife website, so here's a bit about the campus which was really lovely. The church above was a really unusual building, very modern and un-church-like, and it shone a silvery-grey in the sunshine.
Since one of the things discussed at the conference was stress, we particularly liked this quote by David Mamet in the refectory: "We must have a pie. Stress cannot exist in the presence of a pie". And on the way we also saw the mysterious PIES grafitti on the bridges which had been mentioned on the news earlier that week (it's a band that has been around for years but finally released an album).
The meals were great!
And a lovely area to walk around a series of ponds.
