As Lockdown restrictions eased a little, the Occupational Health Department ran their annual ‘Staff Step Challenge’ during September.  

A total of 22 teams from across the University competed and a total of 99 members of staff took part.  

We have counted up all the steps and can now reveal the results!

We can also reveal that the winner of the best team name is ‘We Get Locked Down, But We Get Up Again’, as voted for by the Occupational Health Team.  Well done for your inventive name!
