Vic's Old Bone Yard

Vic's Old Bone Yard

Perhaps one could recommend leapfrog amidst the tombstones as a body-building sport. Perhaps one could go even further and suggest some even more appropriate use for the old Catholic cemetery that graces Vic's back entrance. It is a relatively easy matter to transfer a few graves to a new site. Perhaps a charnal-house could be constructed in one little corner.

What I am driving at is that it is a crying shame that the university should be allowed to grow long and skinny when it could be expanded widthways by the simple process of shifting a few old bones. The site in question is far too useful to be left in neglect. It would be simply ideal for a student hostel, whether run by the university or by a church. Might I suggest that the university authorities investigate the possibilities of utilising this valuable site for student accommodation.
