subtext has received a number of despatches from people who have started their term’s teaching in Fylde’s spaces. The rooms shake every few minutes, interspersed with loud bangs and crashes, and the strange smell of chemicals / fuel has been reported. Occasionally, the contractors enter to check that the ceiling has not fallen in. No it hasn’t, so that’s alright then. Cue more bomb shelter experience. The students are not best pleased and timetabling can offer no alternative. This is exactly the sort of thing students remember and that subsequently ends up being part of their NSS or PTES submissions. The phrase foot-shooting springs to mind.
