At the Staff Festival, each campus will have a tree where attendees can recognize the performance of a colleague.We want like to recognize the hard work, commitment and achievements of all staff, individually and as part of team, through a fair, flexible, responsive and transparent recognition scheme. The VCEG will be clipping your recognitions to the tree to help spread the work for their good effort.

Our VISION is for a Devon that is rich in all wildlife, where people enjoy and care about the natural world and take steps to safeguard it for the future.

DWT

We are a charity and rely on membership, legacy gifts and donations from our supporters and on the efforts of our 300 regular volunteers to deliver our mission.

We manage 50 nature reserves – vital havens for wildlife and places to be discovered and enjoyed by all – but our work extends well beyond their boundaries.

Through ‘landscape scale’ conservation projects such as Working Wetlands or the Devon Bat Project we work with and across communities and landscapes in Devon, helping farmers and land owners to manage their land for the benefit of wildlife.

Urban projects, like Exeter Wild City, create urban wildflower meadows, ponds and wildlife-friendly gardens. Our Wildlife Champions network engages and inspires 10,000 children a year to love wildlife and take action for its benefit.

The campaigners, from the University of Exeter, have taught themselves to tend their own allotments in locations around the city and are also partnering with local food producers as part of the initiative.

veg share

More than 300 students now buy the veg bags, eating 150kg of locally grown food each week packaged only in reusable jute bags. Those who run the project, Exeter Veg Share, are learning gardening skills, which they are putting to use by improving public spaces in Exeter.

All the vegetables come from Shillingford Organics farm just outside of Exeter, and the offering is complemented by the students’ own grown microgreens from Exeter Community Garden on the University of Exeter’s Streatham campus and from donating produce from their student-run allotment by the River Exe. The students also sell local fruit and gourmet mushrooms with affordable pricing and are about to start selling locally-produced oats, flour and pulses. Their model for redesigning the food system on a local level allows best quality ecologically grown fresh and local produce become available at near wholesale prices.

The initiative has allowed the students to partner with other organisations in Exeter such as the St Sidwell’s Centre and Exeter Cathedral, and this month they will begin planting shrubs in the Cathedral Green as part of a joint initiative with the community centre to improve public spaces. Students from Exeter Veg Share planted trees with the University of Exeter Campus Grounds team took place last week in Exeter’s Hoopern Valley.

Pole Fitness

pole fitness

 

Pole fitness is a unique way of exercising your whole body, significantly improving your strength and your core muscles. People are becoming increasingly aware of its benefits and recognising that it is not just limited to dance but can also be used as a form of fitness. Pole fitness burns a significant number of calories and is incredibly rewarding; learning a new move boosts confidence and means that each session is accompanied with a goal and a sense of achievement. There is an incredible amount of moves that can be learnt, including spins, poses, transitions between moves, climbs and floorwork that can all be choreographed into beautiful and impressive routines - or, for the non-performer, can be practiced routinely to build up strength and improve overall physique and, more importantly, greater confidence. 

The Society 

The University of Exeter Pole Fitness Society prides itself on being warm, welcoming and encouraging. We accept absolutely anyone into the society, regardless of gender, size or previous experience. We are proud of the respect and the unconditional support that our members have and provide for one another; this is reflected in the way members provide endless encouragement for and celebrate one another's individual goals.

We hold various events and performances, many which involve raising money for charity, that members are welcome to partake in, regardless of ability, to show off their hard work.

Families for Children Trust is a Specialist Adoption Agency and charitable trust based in the South West.

FFCAt Families for Children we believe that the best place for a child to grow is with their birth families. However where this is not possible we endeavour to find new adoptive families who can offer them a stable and loving home.

Families for Children would be pleased to talk to anyone who is considering adoption and urge you not to wait. We can immediately put to some of those common myths about adoption and talk about the process and its possibilities;

All kinds of people can adopt regardless of marital status, disability, gender, religion or sexual orientation. It doesn’t matter if you own your own home or whether you have had children or not. We are just asking for you to be able to provide and safe and loving home for one of these many children, so please pick up the phone.

This year also marks two special miles-stones for the charity. One is 25 years since the charity began and also celebrating 70 years of adoption records which are held by the charity for children placed in the South West. During that time, Families for Children has placed over 750 children with adoptive families in Dorset, Devon, Cornwall and Somerset and want to continue that success.
