Annual boiler shut down

The annual boiler shut down on both the Ilam and Dovedale campuses occurred  on Friday the 20 November this year, affecting the general heating in nearly all buildings. This shutdown, which will be in place through until March 2016, is required to complete annual maintenance work and a compliance survey on both boiler plants.

Kirkwood and Dovedale Villages, Wheki,  John Britten and Biology are not affected by this shutdown and will perform as usual.

I apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused.
