Great news from Jodrell!

Lovell Telescope

Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre has now reopened.  To support this they are temporarily increasing their staff discount offer from 15% to 25% on admissions. The Discovery Centre is a great day out for all the family. You can explore the wonders of the universe and learn more about the workings of the giant Lovell Telescope!

Hearing Dogs provided a Zoom session last week where staff learned all about their work and watched Abney the hearing dog demonstrate his skills. It was a great session and some staff even brought along their own dogs for the virtual session.  We will be sharing details of a virtual walk that they are promoting in the coming weeks.
