July Newsletter


Welcome to our July Newsletter 2017

Gosh what a month June was. Soooo hot.  Wednesday 21st June was the hottest June day since 1976.  For those of us who were around in 1976 it was the hottest and driest Summer for Centuries.   Of course our office air conditioning broke down as soon as the temperatures began to rise.  It was like working in a sauna for two weeks.  Had to get the staff lots of Baskin Robbins to try and keep them awake!

This month I was honoured to be invited to a celebration at Brent Sikh Centre. I really enjoyed the experience and was made welcome by the members of the Sikh community.  The service was mainly in Punjabi but they did have English translation available for the hymns.  The music was very relaxing.  After the service I enjoyed some lovely vegetarian food in the Langar.  Langar is a Punjabi term meaning canteen.  The food is cooked by the community and freely available to all visitors and very tasty.

A unique ode from our very own Poet


I’m known for my poetry

A shortened note – an oratory

So let me tell you this

Working at ChemEng is bliss.


So I bring you a note

As to you I have often spoke

About contracts and different jobs

So thank you all so much.


Am so sorry to leave you all

And you’ll have no need to call

But be happy that you helped me

Secure a role at London’s best University.

Melanie Ingle
