An unusually sylvan setting for hell.
Work is starting to get busier as the new students start. Mostly they’re just getting shepherded straight to their subject studios so it’s a long way from the usual hubbub, and it’ll be another week before the returners are in. The neighbouring unis still seem very quiet but there were a few more signs of small groups of students enjoying the sun in the park. Incidences of Covid are on the rise in the city though, it is an area “of concern”, so there are still lots of unanswered questions about how we will manage and adapt to changing circumstances in the months ahead.
