Keele University

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!

There were interesting sculptures. We were sure that the person sitting in the sculpture below was the Pokemon gym master defending their territory!

And a lovely area to walk around a series of ponds.
