Freshers' Fair 2009
Tue, 22 September 2009
This year’s Freshers’ Fair, was a huge success, with hundreds of students attending to discover the services available to them. The event was held in the sports hall at Tameside College which was soon filled with students eager to explore the institutions in attendance.
Guest exhibitors present included the Atlantic Star Driving School, Lloyds TSB, Greater Manchester Police, Tameside Travel, Branching Out, AimHigher and Connexions, to name a few. The stalls received a lot of enquiries and interest, making their visit very valuable. Students were given the opportunity to seek advice on mental and sexual health, whilst guidance was given on drug and alcohol related issues.
Hair and beauty students carried out free manicures as ‘Active’ Health and Fitness gymnasiums gave away free passes to use the facilities at Ashton swimming baths. Reflections Restaurant gave free samples of food from their new menu.
