Welcome to the Churchill JCR website!
Churchill College Junior Common Room comprises all undergraduates at Churchill College and is represented by the JCR committee. The committee is elected each year and is made up of 14 offices, each with specific remits.
This website provides information about this year’s committee and its plans. JCR information, including officers’ manifestos, open meeting motions and the latest minutes from committee meetings and open meetings can be found on the JCR Google Drive.
If you have any suggestions to improve college life, please do get in touch! To contact a JCR officer directly (anonymously if you wish), visit the committee page.
**Calling all presidents and treasurers of Churchill College clubs and
Clubs and societies wishing to apply for funding allocations for 2017/18 must submit the Annual Allocation Application Form and the Senior Treasurer's Declaration Form by 2nd May. The Combined Common Rooms Finance Committee (CCRFC) will meet on 9th May to make the annual allocations. Both forms were sent to all JCR members on 6th April. Details of how to complete the forms can be found on the CCRFC's website. Please complete the forms in block capitals and put them in my pigeonhole. Any Ad Hoc applications should be emailed to me by the 2nd May as well.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
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 ;)
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.
