First Take > July 2015

Apologies for not keeping up with August's posts, but between vacations, teaching and moving from the Longman Campus to the New Campus at Beechwood, these have rather fallen between the cracks.

This has now been corrected and the updates are all being posted today.

All the best,
Matt.
