Your comments

Extracts of comments received from the feedback forms:

I would just like to say a huge thank you for organising the summer fayre. It was a great afternoon with the right balance of things to do without the pressure to participate if you just wanted to catch up with colleagues. I genuinely felt appreciated as a member of Warwick's community. The only thing that I would like to see next year is maybe a bouncy castle, if possible."

Really enjoyed it, it would have been good if the activities were all in one place as the giant games and races felt a bit separate."
A tombola would be nice. (Can we have a Christmas Fayre too?)"
Bring the event forward so it starts earlier (around noon, with BBQ from 1pm)."
It was great, burgers could have been smaller! Thank you for an enjoyable afternoon."

Was really well organised."

I liked that it came across as a true 'thank you' to staff as we weren't required to pay for very much unless you wanted extra food and drink - thank you Warwick!"

Thank you very much to all the organisers for a lovely afternoon yesterday – it was a lot of fun and the atmosphere was great. I hope we can do it again!"
