Thursday 13th December is the date for our second Christmas social: the Christmas party! Our Providence Plantation Officer, Laura is kindly hosting it at her house. We’ll be having lots of festive food, drinks, music and games. Everyone is welcome, so bring your friends!
On the evening of Thursday 6th December we will be holding the first of two Christmas events: our Christmas cinema social!
Join us for a trip to a private cinema on the Christmas Steps to watch Love Actually and eat lots of festive snacks. There will be a cost of £5.50 per person and we’ll be getting there for 6:30pm, and as there are limited spaces in this cinema places will be allocated on a first come first serve basis. If you would like to come please email Lucy ASAP.
If you miss out on this, don’t panic! We love Christmas so much here at Conservation Group that we’ll be having another Christmas social, which will be open to everyone.
On Tuesday 20th November we are co-hosting a talk by Victor Tzikas with BioSoc.
Victor Tzikas is River Restoration officer for River Nene Regional Park-independent Community Interest Company, creating a green infrastructure network of environmental projects. He will be discussing his current projects and talking about how he got into his role. If you’re interested in a career in conservation or river restoration in the UK, or just interested, make sure you come along!
The talk will be held in the Sky Lounge of the Life Sciences Building at 5pm. There is no need to buy tickets for this event, just come along if you want to. Head to the Facebook event to let us know you’re interested.
Right after the talk we will be heading to the White Rabbit pub for around 6:30pm for some socialising, drinks and pizza! Come along for a chat and to meet some fellow members. Click going on the Facebook event page if you’d like to come, as we may need to book if there’s a lot of us!
What’s better than Halloween and Bonfire Night? Why, combining the two into one fun-filled night in the woods, of course!
On the evening of the 1st of November we will be heading to Providence Plantation for a night of eating, chatting and games around a bonfire.
Come along to our social on Tuesday 23rd October and up-cycle some plastic bottles and pots. Create some jazzy plant pots to take home to decorate your place with. Snacks, cake, and all the decorating equipment you’ll need will be provided. If you have any of your own plastic bottles or pots that you want to up-cycle, please bring them along.
On Sunday 30th September we will be having our first social event of the year – a picnic on the Downs. This will be a great chance for new and old members to get to know each other and the committee, as well as to ask any questions they have. We will also be making DIY birdfeeders.
We will meet at the Clifton Observatory at 1 pm, or if you are unsure where the that is, there will be someone outside Beacon House at 12:30 pm to walk up there with you (look for someone in a BUCG t-shirt). Bring your own lunch, but biscuits and other sweet treats and snacks will be provided. Click going on the Facebook event if you’re able to come! (Join Bristol University Conservation Group Facebook page to find the event.)
The summer holidays are just around the corner so it’s time for our final conservation trip of the year to Providence Plantation! On Sunday 3rd June we will be clearing the butterfly glade to slow doen the flurry of bramble growth over the summer. Then, in the late afternoon, we will have a barbeque. We will supply the barbecue and food like breadbuns and condiments (ketchup etc.), you just need to bring anything you’d like to be barbecued, plus drinks, snacks ect.
This should be a really nice trip to end the year, so even if you haven’t had chance to come to any other trips during term everyone is welcome to come along and try out some conservation work. It would be lovely to see lots of you there before saying bye for the summer!
It may have been a rainy week but the weather is looking lovely on Sunday so where better to spend the day than in the great outdoors! So that we have an idea of numbers, please could you either email our social secretary Cassia or say you are going on the facebook event.
We are planning a social to Chance and Counters, a board games café on the week begining 19th March. After the games will then go to a nearby pub a few drinks. This is a great chance to join us on our final social before the Easter break. We want to maximise the number of people who can come, so if you are interested please check out the Facebook event and vote on what date works for you or email Heather.
It is the time to create our new hoodie back design so on Thursday 15th Febuary we will be having an evening for us to get together and put pencil to paper. Even if you are uninterested in drawing there will still be talk and pizza. More details to come.
