This has been a week of firsts

Our first Friends of Hodgkin House ‘Virtual Afternoon Tea’ event will be held on Sunday 31 May.

There will be cakes made available to all, a talk and a quiz.

Our first virtual meetings planned with Trustees and Friends! It will be so good to see the people who contribute so much to Hodgkin House on screen as we have missed seeing everyone!

Our first view of Hodgkin House and the surrounding area from rooftop height- we have made a short video of this for our new website. The view is tremendous, with landmarks as far away as Bath and Wales visible. It shows how close we are to the University and the Richmond Building – literally just a few minutes’ walk. Bristol was looking especially beautiful in the sunshine and very green, with lots of trees in leaf now.

We are continuing to observe social distancing in Hodgkin House, even more important now that staff and some contractors are back at work here. With lots more people out and about now, it still means we need to Stay Alert to Stay Safe!

We are welcoming applications at the moment, and reassuring students who apply as they face uncertainty about start dates and travel arrangements. We will provide advice and information about Quarantine requirements for people travelling to the UK as soon as this becomes available, as we all know, it is a rapidly changing picture!

Here’s to a great weekend in the sunshine for everyone!
