School term and holidays consultation
Leicestershire County Council has this week launched the Term Time Consultation for 2019-2022 https://www.leicestershire.gov.uk/term-time-consultation and are keen to invite responses from you. We would be very grateful if you could participate as the more people who respond the more likely they are to select the most appropriate option.
Canopy Gardens Project
We have a project to build a covered seating area near to the astro-turf pitches. This will be available for students at break and lunchtime and will alleviate some of the issues in our dining rooms. There is obviously a cost to this project which Friends of Lutterworth College (FOLC) are supporting us with; hence we will be putting a link (with details of the project) onto parentpay if you would like to make a supporting donation. We have some ambitious plans for this outside area but the total cost could run up to £80,000 so 'any little helps'.
If you have any good quality, sturdy picnic style tables that you don't use and could donate for this area we would be happy to hear from you.
If you would like more information about the project or want to get involved in some of the fund raising please contact Viv Lawson - email@example.com
Catering price rises
There will be some small increases in prices of food served at our dining facilities after half term. Jayne Verey, our Catering Manager, informs us that prices have not risen in over 5 years - even if the portion sizes have! Hence, we have to make some small increments in the price of food.
If you would like to discuss the food or the prices Jayne would be happy to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
One of the main reasons we have queues in our Dining rooms is that students do not have their ID cards with them and therefore staff have to write down student names when they pay for food and then process these once once the break or lunchtime is over (with the obvious consequences of potentially not getting the detail quite right). We are going to have to move to a 'no card, no sale' situation after half term to tackle this issue and therefore please ensure that all students have their ID cards loaded with money if they wish to purchase food from the College facilities.
