Did you know that your affiliated club or society can apply for funding from the Union? This funding isn’t designed to cover the day-to-day running costs of the group (this should be covered by membership fees, fundraising or from other sources) but it can be provided to cover the costs of resources, specific pieces of equipment or trips that wouldn’t otherwise be able to be provided.
We recently approved some new capital funding awards to the Photographic Society, Water Polo Club and Sub-Aqua Club. This means they have some exciting new equipment coming their way which will help to improve … Read the rest
At last month’s meeting, Union Senate voted that a disciplinary procedure should be started against Flora Noble, Union President, for not attending the meeting or submitting a report. Flora was unable to attend and a member of staff notified the Chair of Senate prior to the meeting.
