Derwent Chair Oliver Lester has begun a film campaign to protest against the kitchen facilities in the Derwent extension blocks. With the blocks having two baby belling ovens between 16 people, Lester’s campaign aims to highlight “how bad the situation really is,” and the film features the testimonies of residents as to the problems of cooking with sub-standard facilities. The video, entitled ‘Derwent Kitchen Campaign’ has now been uploaded onto Facebook and YouTube. Lester hopes the campaign will help meet residents’ demands for financial compensation and conventional oven facilities to be installed by Summer Term.
