Response to the 2017 Christmas Fair

“Well done to everyone who organised the fab Christmas Fair today. It was lovely to see so many colleagues I haven’t chatted to in ages.”

“The Christmas Fair was a lovely interlude to my day - thank you. Cake, coffee and Christmas goodies what more can you ask for during the last week of work before the hols.”

“Just back from the Christmas Fair, it was great. Good balance of stalls. Blew my budget of £20! Looking forward to the future events.”

About the MPA Peer Network

The MPA Peer Network is an independent, grassroots initiative, run by a small committee of volunteers. It aims to provide a social and professional network to facilitate communication and collaboration between MPA colleagues of all grades across the University.

In addition to last year’s Christmas Fair, the MPA Peer Network have organised and hosted a series of informal monthly socials and lunchtime seminars focused on wellbeing and stress management. 

The MPA Peer Network is proud to receive funding from the Ferguson Bequest, and to be championed by Deputy Secretary Dorothy Welch and Internal Communications and Engagement Lead Roisin Reilly.
