National Volunteers Week
National volunteers week (1st to the 7th June) is a national campaign celebrated every year, it commends the great work done by volunteers across the UK every day. Every year there is a different focus, this year’s focus is on saying thank you to the millions of volunteers who regularly contribute to society, and to recognise the way that organisations celebrate the work of volunteers across the UK.
This year RNC celebrated national volunteers week and the work of its volunteers by holding a burger and bowl evening, where students, staff and of course volunteers, came together for a evening of friendly competition and nice food. It gave a chance for students and staff to thank the volunteers for the fantastic contribution they make to the college. As well as existing volunteers the evening saw the appearance of a few new faces, this was a great opportunity for them to meet students and staff and get to know what a difference there volunteering could make.
The evening was a great success and was enjoyed by all.

St George’s day 23 April
St. George is the patron saint of England. His cross forms the national flag of England, and features within the Union Flag of the United Kingdom, and other national flags containing the Union Flag, such as those of Australia and New Zealand. Traces of the cult of Saint George in England pre-date the Norman Conquest in the eleventh century; by the fourteenth century the saint had been declared both the patron saint and the protector of the royal family.
In 1222 the Council of Oxford declared April 23rd to be St George’s Day. It was not until 1348 that St George became the Patron Saint of England. In 1415, St George’s Day was declared a national feast day and holiday in England.
However, after the union with Scotland at the end of the 18th Century, the tradition diminished and since has not been widely acknowledged and is no longer a national holiday
Traditional customs were to fly the St George’s flag and wear a red rose in one’s lapel. There’s a campaign for St George’s day to be a national holiday in England once again. For more information on St George visit www.stgeorgesday.com.

A New Tandem for RNC
On Saturday 2nd March, a small group of staff and students including Principal Sheila Tallon and two members of the ‘Eyes Over’ editorial team Dee and Ben, went to Malvern in Worcestershire (famous for its old hills and pure water) to attend a fundraising event for RNC. The event was hosted by Malvern cycle shop who are kindly selling the tandem to RNC for half price. At the event members of the public and various attendees got the opportunity to ride on a tandem, most people for the first time.
