The Students' Union at Royal Holloway, University of London is inviting local residents and students to join them for a community tea party on Sunday (9 October).
The event is an opportunity to introduce the Love Your Neighbour Campaign to new students and their neighbours and offers the chance for everyone to enjoy an afternoon together.
The Love Your Neighbour campaign was launched last year to help forge positive relationships between local residents and students and to offer advice to both parties.
The leaflet advised students to avoid making any noise late at night, to take the non-res bus home from campus and to refrain from parking their car anywhere other than their own street/driveway, as the roads near campus can get very congested.
The Love Your Neighbour Community tea party will be held in the newly refurbished Students’ Union on campus and will include a bouncy castle, an ice cream van, face painting and performances from College societies.
Katie Blow, Vice President (Education & Welfare), said: “We felt this would be a nice way to explain further what the Students’ Union’s role is within Royal Holloway and the local area. It will help to put names to faces and will hopefully demonstrate that we are actively working to build relationships with the community.
“It is also the chance to unveil the fantastic new building we have which we will be using for community events in the future.”
The Love Your Neighbour Community tea party will be held from 11am until 4pm on Sunday 9 October at the Students’ Union.
