ps. there is an issue with some club name headers (the white text which says 'xyz club' at the top right hand side of your site) not lining up with the rest of the blue bar (like this) I can sort this for you, let me know if you have this problem (this is what it should look like). 

3) Transport: Please can we try and get bookings in early - we now no longer have the espace so there is a little more pressure. Andrea will start fining next week now that you have had a couple of weeks to get back into the swing of things, and even worse, you may not get a car. Please remember to keep going off BUCS.

4) Dates for Diaries: President Question time at 1830 in School 6 on the 10/3. All members of the exec will be there to talk about their roles so that you are clued up for Hecklings on the 14/3 also in School 6 at 1800. NB - wear trainers to Hecklings as it is Sport your Trainers Day - you have been warned. The transport budgets will be discussed at the PQT. Elections are on the 18/3. All of this is really important so that you can make an informed decision on positions for next year.

5) AU Charities Officer: We have an AU charities officer - Fiona Dutton. If you have any good ideas that we can link into a charity the please contact her on fcd6@ and we can see what we can do!
