The new University of Cumbria signs are starting to appear around the campus this week. Initially there were just a few, but the pace is quickening. By the time I get back from my holiday, the new identity will be well underway. I'm now going through old stocks of paperwork, preparing to put old St Martin's leaflets in the recycler, or turn into notepads where appropriate.
Just over a week ago we had a party to say goodbye to St Martin's, which kept a good balance between letting go of the old and embracing the new. As we start as a new University, it will be interesting to see how quickly the community around us adjusts.
