Want to stay warm in style while slashing those brambles? Fancy showing off the latest and greatest in society fashion? Then why not order this year’s BUCG clothing?
Featuring the winning design (see image) voted for by you in our annual competition hoodies and t-shirts are available in a plethora of colours. The design shown will be on the back and our logo will appear on the front left. Hoodies are £19.08 and the t-shirst are £9.72 (including VAT). These prices may well come down the more orders we receive. Sizes and colours are shown in the links: hoodies (unisex); men’s t-shirt; women’s t-shirt.
Please email Alex by Friday 27th November with your order. We are aiming to have them ready by the Christmas meal on Monday 7th December and we will update you with the details once they are confirmed.
On Sunday 6th December we will be continuing the scrub clearance and upkeep at Providence Plantation out at Long Ashton. We’ll be getting the bus from Bristol Bus Station at around 9:30am and aiming to be back by 4pm.
Providence Plantation is a piece of woodland owned by Bristol University and is an ongoing project for BUCG. We aim to improving the biodiversity and pathways of the wood. It’s great fun out in the fresh air and, as always, no prior experience is needed. If your interested in getting involved please email Emily by 5pm on Monday 30th November (you must be a member to participate).
On Sunday 15th November we will be going to Leigh Woods to fell some trees. National Trust ranger Bill will be guiding us to clear the trees along a footpath. This will allow light to reach the forest floor creating a more diverse habitat. We will also make a bonfire from the wood we have cut. This is one of the best trips of the year as felling trees is very satisfying, plus we get to burn stuff!
We are expecting to be out from 10am to 4pm and the head to a pub afterwards. If you would like place on the trip please email Emily by 5pm Wednesday 11th November. (Please note that this trip is only open to members.)
As you may have noticed BUCG has rather snazzy t-shirts and hoodies made for our society members each year, and we need your help in coming up with a new design for this years clothing! The design should be simple, include our mascot Molly and not include colours or shading as the final design will be monochrome lines. Aside from the above the rest of the design is completely up to you!
On Sunday 25th October we will be joining the Avon Wildlife Trust to do some conservation work on one of their site; what and where exactly is yet to be decided. We will be meeting at the AWT offices on Jacob’s Wells Road at 9:45am and heading off on a minibus. We expect to be back in Bristol by about 4pm.
If you would like to go please email Emily by 5pm on Wednesday 21st October. Please note that you must be a member to attend.
On Saturday 17th October, 11am-4pm, we will be going on autumn trip to St Werburghs City Farm to help prepare their Boiling Wells site for their Apple Day event on the Sunday. It is a fun trip in a great part of Bristol with a variety of things to do including apple picking and tidying the paths. We will most likely head to the nearby pub, The Farm, afterwards.
To sign up please email Emily by 5pm Wednesday 14th October. You must be a member to attend this trip; membership can be bought on our Union page for only £5 for the year. Places may be limited so if the event becomes oversubscribed people will be picked at random to go.
Additionally, if you would like to volunteer for the City Farm’s Apple Day you can email Sophie.
