Two Months since Lockdown

Saturday 23 May marks two months since Herts went into isolation. 

During the first month of lockdown we accomplished so much as a community, and this has only grown stronger. Although It has been a difficult and challenging time, our staff, students and alumni have pulled together, and we couldn’t be prouder 💜
