Hatfield ‘Rezzi Reps’ doing their bit for the community

STUDENTS at the Hatfield-based uni are doing their bit to help build better relations with their neighbours.

Resident Reps, or ‘Rezzi Reps’, were formed to help students integrate into their new community and promote good community relations.

They are a selected group of 12 students who live locally and want to contribute to the areas in which they live and study.

A uni spokeswoman said: “The Resident Reps take part in a wide variety of local projects from litter picking to giving advice to students on how to get the best out of living in the local community.

“In recent weeks they have worked at events such as the St George’s Day celebrations in Hatfield Town Centre and the South Hatfield Summer Fete, helping with the set up on the day and also working on stalls.

“They attend and provide feedback to the Community Forum – a meeting that the university has set up with local resident associations and groups.

“They are also currently taking part in mentoring local year six students in life skills as part of the Crucial Crew event that the Community Safety Partnership runs in May.
