Be a cow for a day
Blogger: Aggie Rothon, Communications Officer Once upon a time a friend once handed me a slip of paper she said reminded her of a story I once told of how, as a small girl, I’d sit in the field at the bottom of the lane and wait for the neat little Dexter cows that grazed there to come and...

Do you prefer sweet or savoury?
Blogger: Aggie Rothon, Communications Officer The running joke in my household at the moment is that whatever film any one suggests watching my response will always be, ‘hmmmm, I don’t do war/romcom/sci-fi films.’ My comeback quip is always ’but I like characters and contemplation...

I spy with my little eye...
Blogger: Erica Howe, Communications Manager Last Sunday was very much like most other Sunday mornings in our house. Alarm ringing out at 6am and a mad dash out of the house. Sandwiches made, energy drinks prepared, book packed, bike kit in the boot, sat nav programmed in and a big cup of tea for the...

From fresh cream to Fibonacci
Blogger: Aggie Rothon, Communications Officer We were house sitting over the weekend and I was fascinated by the higgledy piggeldy melange of pictures that hung on the walls. A simple line drawing of a whooper swan in full flight. A copy of Constable’s hay wain showing a bulbous steel grey...

What is a "Sea Gull" to me?
