Putting hope back into britain - Mr McCluskey26th February 2014
On WEDNESDAY 26TH FEBRUARY: Trinity Politics Society is excited to present Len McCluskey, General Secretary of Unite, the UK's biggest union. The event will be live-streamed and journalists will be present.
Mr McCluskey will be using the talk to make a policy announcement, and it promises to be a fascinating and controversial event.

He will talk on the topic of:


'With the economy still stalled and the country still depressed, Britain needs to rediscover optimism about the future – both in terms of policies that can give people a guarantee of jobs and homes, and a vision of a better society. Len McCluskey will explain what both trade
unions and students can contribute to this.'

The event will take place in the Winstanley Lecture Theatre, Trinity
College. The talk will commence at 4:30, preceded by a free drinks
reception from 4:15. As usual, the event is free and all are welcome.

As usual the event is free and all are welcome, but the capacity of the Winstanley Lecture Theatre is limited and admission will be on a first come first served basis

Trinity College acquires Dunsfold Park17th January 2014
Trinity College has acquired Dunsfold Park near Cranleigh in Surrey at a total cost of just over £50m and entered into a partnership agreement with its former owner, the Rutland Group.

The property consists of a 516 acre airfield, 65 acres of commercial space and 30 acres of land allocated for a solar farm and an anaerobic digestion plant – a total of nearly 612 acres. There is also agricultural land totalling 286 acres in four parcels.

The property lies between Cranleigh and Dunsfold in the Waverley district of Surrey. It is almost equidistant between Guildford and Horsham and is adjacent to the main A281 road between the two.

The College has entered into long term partnership agreements with the Rutland Group to manage and develop the estate. Dunsfold Park is the largest brownfield site in the Borough of Waverley and there is an opportunity to extend the business park, build new homes, or expand the airfield business. The airfield has an underlying planning permission for the erection, repair and flight testing of aircraft.

Formerly a WWII Canadian airfield, and subsequently used by British Aerospace to develop Hunter, Harrier and Hawk aircraft, Dunsfold Park is currently most famous as the site for the production of the BBC’s ‘Top Gear’.

The College was advised as to property matters by Bidwells and its lawyers were Mills & Reeve.
