An even heavier snowfall overnight meant that we had to cancel the classes at all our centres for the second day running. I was also unable to get to the Niace conference – Colleges in the community – that was to be held in central London. The aim of the conference was to report on the strategic role colleges can play and the added value they bring in leading adult learning and serving local communities at a time when colleges are taking responsibility for the shape and balance of educational offer to their locality. On this the 3rd day of a frozen transport network in the Capital it meant no trains going out of Sutton this morning. Some of us however managed to get to work. This included my puppy Lilia who refused to go back to the house after her morning walk and made her way to the College with me! Enjoying the walk in the snow we arrived looking like snowballs! Lots of staff had managed to get in to work and they gave Lilia the warmest of welcomes! Jo Fowler from the SCOLA coffee shop greeted us with her scrumptious Bacon Sarnie’s courtesy of SCOLA as a thank you to those who had braved the storm – in many cases literally! The forecast for 3rd of December seems to be less snow but very cold. We are planning to have classes running at the Sutton Centre tomorrow. Fingers crossed the weather doesn’t take a turn for the worse.
