My Experience on a Residential Trip During the Pandemic

I was very fortunate enough to be able to attend the Geography department’s residential trip over the last weekend, which allowed me to finally get to meet a number of other students in my department, explore the town of Dorking and engage in Geography-related activities.

 

The trip adhered very closely to COVID-19 regulations, and included social distancing on the coach, separate meal times and wearing masks indoors. We stayed at the FSC Juniper Hall, a 17th-century manor house converted for field studies, where we had the opportunity to hike to the nearby Box Hill overlooking the town of Dorking, which we also visited. Both were incredible experiences, and allowed us to explore the economic, cultural and environmental geography of the area. We were also lucky to have the awaited England vs Scotland game screened for us, adding to the incredible ambience of the weekend!

 

Attending a residential trip during a pandemic showed all the hard work the Geography department went through to ensure we had a great end to the year. It really shows that despite such difficult and uncertain times, they went the extra mile to provide us with the opportunities we would have otherwise had in other years!
