Record-breaking weekend 4 ‘Cranfield University’s walks

Posted on Updated on

Our student walk society ‘Cranfield University’s Walks had a very busy weekend during which new Cranfield University’s students showed record interest in our walks:

On Saturday 29th September 34 of Cranfield University’s students attended an early afternoon walk across the fields to Lodge Farm, North Crawley. It was so nice to see the  current student president Atma joining us for this event.!-) At one point our group split and so some of us went on a little detour via North Crawley village, before heading to Lodge Farm.  Angela who runs the Lodge Farm farm shop – and a current winner of our award for the “most welcoming local business” – prepared especially for us her amazing homemade cakes, ice cream and freshly baked bread. We sat in the garden sipping a cup of tea /coffee and watched those having a go at the trampoline or wandered off to say hello to the chickens. Then it was time to head back to Cranfield University via the working stables next door to Lodge Farm. Big thank you goes to our group of walk leaders for this walk: Shiwei, Moustafa, Nelia, Jason and Asteris. Special appearance by Periklis who travelled all the way from Rugby to attend this walk – wow!

After the walk, there was annual student clubs and societies fair from 5 to 8pm, organised by Cranfield Students’ Association. What very busy 3 hours it was! We did not stop! Big thank you goes to Alan and Graham for manning our table so eloquently; also Nelia, Farrukh and Periklis for their support. And let’s not forget to acknowledge the presence of our amazing photographers Asteris and Xiaojian, who is also our Photo Editor. 

On Sunday 30 September we organised a walk to Cranfield village. Last year the attendance was good – but this year, it was record-breaking! We counted 83 Cranfield University students at the start of this walk! Unbelievable! We descended on Cranfield village like a swarm of bees! We stopped at a local co-op supermarket, then getting a view of Marston Trift and Forest of Marston Vale, before heading back on a small section of the  National Route 51 of the National Cycle Network and then using the footpath that circumnavigates Cranfield airport. Big thank you goes to our group of walk leaders for this walk: Alan, Nelia,Farrukh, Dave and Alex. Also to our photographers Alan and Tomas.

On Monday 1 October at lunchtime there was yet another annual fair in CSA  which was an oportunity for new students to meet representatives of ‘Cranfield University’s Walks’: We  answered students’  numerous questions and signed up more new members. Big thank you  goes to our great team – Andrew, Jason and Eduardo and our award-winning photographer Asteris

This was our busiest weekend yet, with record attendance on our walks. The two student clubs & societies fairs led to 54 students and staff being recruited as our members. More are to join, as I gather from the number of email enquiries we’ve had in the past couple of days!-)
