Get hyped for the new and improved Christmas Super Formal!! What's so super about it? It's like last years Christmas formal on Red Bull.
The event will begin with a mulled wine reception followed by the traditional Christmas formal (Christmas meal, crackers, festive table clothes, party poppers and everything you need to celebrate). There will be live music in the bar afterwards (by university bands) and silent disco in the Jock Colville! Karaoke will also be available in the TV Room. The alcohol licence will be extended to midnight and there will be extra bar staff.
The cost of tickets is £16 for Churchill JCR members and £17 for guests. Churchill JCR can each bring up to two guests.
Any profit from the event will be donated to a charity upon which the whole JCR will vote.
Make sure you follow the facebook event pages for updates on ticket release, entertainment updates and hype!
Local sexual health charity DHIVERSE will be offering free chlamydia and HIV testing.
For chlamydia, you simply take one of their kits, go to the toilet, take a swab if you have a vagina or pee in a cup if you have a penis, then hand the kit back and your results are texted to you usually within a week. For HIV, it's a simple finger-prick test with results within minutes - this will be done in a private room.
Look out for their stall in the main concourse next Monday evening from 7pm when there will also be a JCR Open Meeting. What better way to spend an evening than JCR politics and STI testing?
It's a good idea for everyone who is sexually active to make use of this service, regardless of whether or not you think you have an STI. Many STIs do not display any symptoms, but are easily treatable/manageable. Give yourself the gift of free, in-college STI testing this festive season ;)
Come along to the first open meeting of term! Your new president, Patrick, will outline his plans for the JCR for the coming year (formal motions etc. will be submitted in January 2017). One motion has been submitted proposing the introduction of a BME Officer to the JCR Committee. This will be discussed and voted on this evening.
Please come along if you're available! There will be free cookies!
I am always ready to learn, although I do not always like being taught.
There are a limited number of quiet, low energy, leak proof fridges available to hire for £2 per week. In order to apply for a fridge, students need to complete and return a fridge application form from the Porters’ Lodge and then return it to the Conference pigeon hole at the Porters’ Lodge. Forms are available from Monday 03 October 2016 and fridges are allocated on a first come, first served basis, with priority given to students with medical or religious reasons (confirmed by the College nurse). Deadline of applications is the 10th of October.
If you wish to bring your own fridge into you room, you must complete and return a fridge application form from the Porters’ Lodge and then return it to the Conference/Accommodation pigeon hole in the Porters’ lodge. In addition you have to ensure that the fridge is placed on a waterproof tray and that it has been PAT tested. A £50.00 refundable deposit charge will be added to your College account. This is to cover the cost of disposal in the event that your fridge may be left on College premises after your departure. If you are an undergraduate, fridges may be left clean, empty and switched off over the Christmas and Easter vacation at your own risk. Cleaning charges will apply for all fridges left dirty. All fridges must be removed over the summer vacation.
