I am a veterinary student in my 5th year of study at the University of Nottingham and have lived in the village for 4 years. I have helped to organise lots of different events but my primary focus is on promoting a sense of community and wellbeing. My aim is to provide a link with Kegworth village and the University of Nottingham because there are over 800 students who live in the village. My role with One Kegworth is Events Manager for the June event and providing support for the other events held across the year.
