Thanks to everyone who came along to the Black Fish Speaking Tour event last week. Around 55 people attended with many staying on to network, eat some delicious vegan food from Yellowbellys and interact with the stalls from Transition LincolnVegan Outreach Lincoln & East MidlandsGreenpeace and Friends of the Earth.

Wietse’s presentation on the severity of the over-fishing situation was certainly concerning. I’d urge anyone who was not able to make the event to look at  The Black Fish website for further information on the problems and what they are doing to gather evidence to help prevent illegal practices.

The 2013 Staff Travel Survey begins this week. The survey will be used to inform the University’s Travel Plan and to provide travel statistics. For a chance to win a Halfords £10 gift card complete the survey and leave an e-mail address.

The Travel Survey can be accessed at:

The University Travel Plan has a requirement for up to date information of how our staff and students travel to the University. For the annual return to the Higher Education Statistics Agency the University is required to collect information on travel by staff and students to the University.

All information collected from this survey will be treated in the strictest of confidence and will only be used in the development of the Travel Plan and associated travel statistics. Any information collected will not be provided to third parties and will not be used to identify individuals.
