November Update

If you like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter, you might have noticed that we have started loading our time capsule!

Here’s a a sneak peek of some of the things we’re putting in…


To find out more, take a look at our Facebook timeline photos. Each photo has a short explanation and we’ll be adding more soon.

The time capsule will be buried in the centre of our labyrinth which is being worked on by DISO volunteers.


Here’s a picture of the DISO team.


In other news: Last month we were sad to see Rob Zviko leave. We enjoyed a nice meal at Mister Pizza in West Bridgford to say goodbye. Here’s the whole STAA staff team below (with Rob in the middle) – you don’t often see us all in one place at the same time!

Rob leaving does mean that we are now recruiting a Partnership and Volunteer Development Officer. For more information, please visit our website.

Finally, we’d like to share a colourful photo from the Heritage Display Garden to cheer up the winter blues. To see more photos, take a look at the Facebook album.
