TH TB and SPL weren’t there.

4.7 Sports report

Carter Shield was a disaster and the Exec attendance needs to be better. It is the tug of war and rugby final next week. CW is hoping to make a bigger deal of it during Freshers Week. She is also considering having a deal with the sports teams saying that they can’t have money unless they commit to Carter Shield and Legends as it is only 5-10 players needs a week.

4.8 President’s report

Issue recently: if someone on the JCR offers to do something for a social or for the JCR, we can’t pay you for it. You can’t be expected to the paid for a voluntary basis.

The Extrav theme has been leaked but keep giving out false themes. TH is doing the FB page this week. And everyone keep thinking of decorations.

5.Any other business

International Social – BJ

Mint is having a refurbishment to turn itself more into a club so they want more events. SPL had the idea of having a prohibition night after exams and they will mix 1920s music into a club mix. We could hire booths and get drink offers and maybe put some money behind the bar. BJ was hoping preferably week 9 but that is also Legends.

LM had the idea of having a social for the Michael Mullet competition in week 10 and maybe make it Extrav themed. FW and RK offered to help LM.

Freshers Week – LM

LM will look up in the constitution how many people needs to be in the Freshers Committee. FW has created a form and will put it on the Facebook group this week. International Fresher reps training will be sorted when reps are chosen. Matt Saint is wanting to do something about training them too.

Transparency – CH

Robbie Love spoke to CH the other day and asked to bring up the transparency of the Exec up in the meeting. RL has only been off the Exec for a few weeks and he doesn’t have any idea what is going on. Maybe use the notice board in the bar to put summary of our meetings up. Also send out a summary of the minutes in the newsletter each week.

Sports Social – CW

CW wants to reward the people who regularly come to the Carter Shield. Perhaps take £200 out of social or admin and put it towards a bar social at the time of the England game maybe?


The Quiz has stopped until week 8 but is there is the bye law. Bar is open every night because the quiz is so successful. If the quiz is stopped, it is possible that the bar could be closed.

6.Date of the next meeting:

Sunday 27thth May, 7pm

End of Meeting: 20.00
