How are you doing?

Quiet campus: College photographer Thomas Angus took this picture of our building in the glorious spring sunshine on May 4th

While we're living, working and studying away from College, we would love to fill this page with snapshots of our EEE community.

Maybe you're doing some volunteer activity, finding time for a creative hobby, celebrating a special event, or trying out challenging new recipies.

Perhaps you need some motivation, or you've top tips for cutting hair, or you'd just like to share some of the small, everyday, positive things that are helping you through these unusual days.

Staff and students, please email your photos, your videos, anything, to Jane Horrell, and we'll share them here and on social media* via #EEECommunity

* If your photos include other people, you must have their permission to share, or the permission of their parent/guardian if under 18.

Austrian adventures?

Kay has returned to school - The Chalet School on the beautiful "Tiernsee" (Achensee in real life). She went there two years ago, and everything is just as described in the books: the lake, the ferry, the train, the cakes with featherbeds of whipped cream!

Clare and Esther - gardening

Clare's allotment

Growth industry

Clare's allotment was a muddy field of weeds, after a lot of hard work it's now a smart layout of six raised beds made from scaffolding boards with bark chip paths between. A local family of fox cubs also enjoy playing here in the sun.

Esther's vegetables

Growth industry (2)

Esther started growing these from seed in first weekend of lockdown and they are now ready to go into the garden. She's keen to take advantage of working from home and being in London for the summer to grow some flavoursome home grown tomatoes. The other pots are aubergines, basil and parsley.
