Unfortunately, a couple of our committee members have had to step down from their roles recently. This means there are a couple of spots on the committee open to new members!
Being on the BUCG comittee is a great opportunity to contribute to your society, have fun, and looks great on your CV (particularly if you’re aiming for a career in environmental work, or just to show off your teamwork, responsibility and organisiational skills). If you decide to run for a position, you will be asked to give a small speech telling members whey they should vote for you. Don’t worry, it’s very casual and people usually talk for less than a minute!
The roles that are open are Social Secretary and Providence Plantation Officer.
Social Secretary: Organise regular socials and the AGM. We already have one Social Secretary, however, we’re looking for another so we can make our socials as fun as possible!
Providence Plantation Officer: Charged with the planning of BUCG’s work at the University’s woodland at Long Ashton, managing it for biodiversity and public enjoyment. In partnership with the University Estates office. Once again, we already have one Providence Officer, but we’re looking for another to provide a bit of extra support!
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.
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.
