A staggering 93% of students who completed a full-time degree in 2015/16 were in work or further study six months after graduation – the best in region, according to data released by HESA (Higher Education Statistics Agency) today.

The Destination of Leavers Survey (DLHE) revealed the figure had risen by 0.9 percentage points from 92.1% the previous year.

The university is also number one in Wales and tenth in the UK for part-time students in employment, with 99.1% graduating and securing a job or participating in further study within six months.

Vice Chancellor Professor Maria Hinfelaar was thrilled with the results and thanked the institution’s award-winning careers team for its hard work in securing the figure and supporting alumni.

A popular fundraising event is back and it’s set to be more colourful and bubbly than ever before.

The Nightingale House Hospice Rainbow Dash Bubble Bash will be returning to Bangor on Dee Racecourse on Sunday September 10th in a blaze of colour – and this time, extra foam.

The annual family-fun event, sponsored by Moneypenny, typically sees more than 1,000 people of all ages tackle the four kilometre dash around the racecourse while getting splattered in multi-coloured paint. Last year for the first time a bubble pit was introduced and it proved so popular, this time there will be double the bubbles.

Hospice Fundraiser Sam Eastwood said: “It really is the most colourful race around and great fun. Everyone taking part starts out in a plain white t-shirt and leaves in a blaze of rainbow colours with a great big smile on their face and lots of happy memories.

“The Rainbow Dash Bubble Bash is not only a great family day out but also a perfect opportunity to have a fun day out with friends or for team-building with colleagues. It’s really spectacular and quite a sight seeing so many multi-coloured, bubbly people all together!”

Nicola and James Adedeji from Bim’s Kitchen launch two new products (African Baobab & Cacao Syrup and African Hibiscus Syrup) at the Hamper Llangollen food festival .

One of the first food festivals in Wales is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a record number of stallholders and an £8 million boost for the economy.

Llangollen Food Festival was founded in 1997 and pioneered food tourism by creating a shop window for home grown producers.

Since then the event has gone from strength to strength, annually attracting around 8,000 food lovers from far and wide.

As a result, it’s been named as one of the Top 10 food festivals in the UK by the Independent and Daily Telegraph newspapers.

It’s estimated the festival pumps nearly £400,000 into the local economy every year, making a total of £8 million since it started two decades ago.

This year’s festival is on October 14 and 15 and once again it will be held at the iconic Llangollen Pavilion.
