First of all, on behalf of my team, I wish you a very Happy New Year! I do hope that you managed to have a relaxing break over the holidays and you feel refreshed for the start of the new term.
This month, to beat the winter blues, we have a list of events to get you involved. For those whose new year resolutions included exercising more often, we have a range of sporting activities, from yoga to football. Other events include few ice-breaker activity nights for those who wish to expand their social circle within the hall. These will appear on our list of events shortly. General cinema screenings and those for children will continue this month with exciting new films as well as classic ones, such as Pulp Fiction.
In early February, we have a guided tour for Harry Potter fans. Make sure you register because places are limited. We will also have Murder Mystery dinner for all postgraduate residents for which tickets go on sale shortly.
I am pleased to announce that our new Community Volunteers Committee will start to work with my team to enhance the social life of the hall from this month. I welcome them and look forward to working closely with the Committee.
Our December’s IH Community Award goes to Michelle Jeffrey, one of our morning catering staff. She has been nominated by several residents who have pointed out her exceptional enthusiasm, friendliness, and service to the community. Her lovely music is commented by many as a very welcome mood-setter in the mornings. Please note that you can nominate any junior staff member (catering, reception, cleaning and maintenance) via our website.
Finally, I am happy to announce that IH is now on Instagram. You can follow us at international_hall_uol. In case, you haven’t already, please find us on Facebook. Both of these, are great channels to hear about all the exciting things happening at IH.
