Plant Nematology at Leeds: Social Space

Annual Lab Day Out 2017

Thorpe Perrow Arboretum

At Thorpe Perrow we made friends with the animals, admired the birds of prey and searched for nematodes. There was also the obligatory group photo opportunity!

Annual Lab Day Out 2016

On another dull and drizzly day we went down the M1 to take on the challenge of Cawthorne Maize Maze. We split into three teams and the competition was fierce to find the answers to all the clues and then get out of the maze. After many wrong turns, retraced steps and dead ends, the victorious team was Fiona, Chris, Avi and Duqing. The friendly competition continued as we revisited our childhood with some old-fashioned games. Adams showed off great technique in the Welly Wanging, whilst some of us had less success on the Space Hoppers!

Annual Lab Day Out 2015


The plant nematology lab left its mark on the Scarborough sea front on a sunny but blustery day in July. A paddle in the (ice cold) North Sea was followed by crazy golf and a lunch of fish and chips. We then took to the water further inland on the pedaloes, and rounded out the day with a visit to the seaside arcades.

Annual Lab Day Out 2014

Yorkshire Sculpture Park

On a grey day in June we visited the Yorkshire Sculpture Park near West Bretton. We fuelled up on coffee and cake before heading out to admire the sculptures spread around the park while Refik, our resident Turk, made some friends.
