Well, autumn is well and truly here. After a lovely start to the month, it's all gone rather damp, overcast and cold, but we're not going to let that stop us enjoying life on campus!

There are loads of things that ahs are getting involved with in October and moving into November.

We're supporting the Students' Union with their Go Green Week initiative between Monday 26 and Friday 30 October.

We've given away free munchboxes on the parade, promoted meat-free meal offers, we're running a Fairtrade stall and supporting the SU at the Cycle Cinema event by providing Fairtrade hot chocolate at the event on Friday 30 October.

In addition to that we've been encouraging students to save energy and recycle through the Student Switch Off and Less Landfill, More Planet campaigns across our student residences.

These initiatives run throughout the year and at the end of it, those groups who have saved the most energy and recycled the most waste will win prizes.

This helps to instill an environmental conscientiousness that we hope our students will take with them into their post-University lives.

Also, throughout October we've been celebrating the Great Bath Feast, with special offers in Parade Bar & Grill, Fountain Canteen and Wessex Restaurant. In fact, you can still take advantage of the main course and dessert for £10 offer in Wessex Restaurant until Friday 30 October.

Looking forward to November, a number of our ahs colleagues in the Security team are raising money and awareness for men's health charities as they join the Movember movement.

Dubbing themselves Securi-Mo, the seven security mo-bros are back after their brilliant £600 contribution to the cause in 2014.

We'll be tracking their progress, so keep an eye on @UniBathEvents and @UniBathEat for updates.

You can make a donation through their page on the Movember website, or in the library where Kate Robinson has kindly allowed the guys to put a sponsorship box. You can find that on the security desk near the entrance.

Good luck boys! We'll let you know how they get on in next month's blog.
