OFFICER REPORT

VP Student activities

Tour

After confirming that we will be continuing our contract with “I Love Tour” we can also now confirm that the booking for our teams to go to our destination will be the last week of Easter Holidays (17th April – 23rd April). The destination will be decided democratically at a later date when all packages have been presented to the sports clubs.

Society

Base bar and club is set to open for the start of the academic year as a bar during the day and a club during the night. It will be an open venue to our students but will also be a space for societies to book out for smaller events during evening and/or night.

Student Idea: Society room bookings

Student feedback has been collected and I have requested to meet the university timetable manager. Just waiting on the university for a suitable time/date to meet.

Friday Evenings

After being given the green light we are now able to use Friday to put on some sort of alternative event on square 3 every Friday (7pm-10pm) starting Monday 24th as long as we risk assess everything sufficiently to keep things under control. Next steps are now to set up the first 3 weeks of performances from societies (and clubs).

Time Banking

The student idea, Time Banking, has been put on hold until a later date as there are more urgent things coming up around fresher’s the require our attention and the project will be a yearlong project.

Sports membership model

As the current model for free sport is currently financially unsustainable the sports board are on the position that the current free sport offer be abolished and we as a union are continuing to push to keep some element of free sport.

RAG

RAG committee has been assembled and we are now identifying all the potential charities that we would like to work with for RAG week before letting the students choose. Meetings set to commence from this month and onwards.

November fireworks/ 2nd Fair

We have decided to run a second fair for sports and societies to help those clubs who may not have recruited as many members as hope during fresher’s fair. The event is set to be joined with fireworks night as a pre-event on the 4th Nov.
