An ode to Westwood – the forgotten campus

Old mother Westwood went to her cupboard
To fetch her poor staff a bone
When she got there
The restaurant was bare
And so the poor staff had none!

What is going on with Westwood? What has it done? Who has it upset? Has it been removed from the campus? Has it just been set free to roam as a little island off the Channel?

Yes, we have just found out that our beloved Westwood restaurant is about to close from next Friday! What?? Why?? Not viable?? What a lot of old tosh!! It's used quite a lot from what I can see. The staff are fantastic, the food is good and overall it's excellent value for money.

In our building the multimedia centre/ITS we don't have anywhere else to go to have lunch away from the desk and we don't even have a vending machine! The nearest one is in the restaurant but we can't get to it if the restaurant is closed! We are now told that we have to traipse all the way over to University House for something to eat – gee thanks – that's a good 10/15 min walk for us! You really wanna do that when it's hammering down like it was this lunch time.

Okay, so we do have a great little Costcutter that stocks a very small selection of sarnies but somehow I don't think this can expand to cater for everyone.

And, and, another thing! I have also just found out today that the shuttle bus laid on by the Sports Centre to ferry people to the sports centre has ceased running from now as well. This is a great service but one that hardly anyone knew about (the times were a bit rubbish and it hasn't been publicised too well) and this is probably through lack of demand as well. It might come back in September if we're lucky!

So there you go – can't eat, won't eat (and can't even get a bus to somewhere with food!)

God I needed tha tlittle rant – feels so good baby!
