A New Perspective

See things from A New Perspective and test your your abilities to the limit!

This is a joint event between Bowland and Furness to help raise awareness for disabled students and the difficulties they face on a daily basis. We aim to clear up any myths and confusion that Lancaster students have about disabilities. Each disability is different, and by participating in our challenges portraying different problems for different disabilities, we hope to help students understand the disabilities and the effects they bring.

Bev’s Hills – Week 22

Hello Furness, and a late welcome back, hope you all had a great easter! Apologies for no newsletter last week, I thought I could get away with not doing  one; but apparently not having Bev’s Hills is more disappointing than the Grad Ball line-up. Your lame joke of the week:

I had a ham and pineapple sandwich the other day.

That’s hawaii roll.

We’ve had the 15 Hour Bar Crawl, Action for Happiness,  got cheated out of the Patriot’s Cup, launched “Mind your own business”, released our first Furst,  helped to save the arts at Lancaster, elected our new officers and started the first of many international nights!

I hope you’ve all enjoyed this term as much as I have, and I hope you all have a fantastic Easter break!

See you all next term,

furness sports

Ex-publicity officer and aspiring sports writer Craig Kitch brings you the following match report:

Both sides walked out on to the churned up quagmire, they call the college football pitches, understanding that the winner of the game would be in pole position to go on and clinch the title. The first half was a gritty affair in which Pendle, with the wind behind them, repeatedly launched dangerous balls into the area to no avail. The imperious Jake Horsley and the curvaceous Dean Kay dominated in the air, refusing to fold under pressure. In the second half Furness increasingly dictated the game with a tasty chance falling to Adam Williams who put the ball just wide of the post. Then disaster struck, a cross by a Pendle winger trickling awkwardly across the face of the goal to be tapped in past Thomas ‘Wozza and Walka’ Warren. Angered by the goal conceded, Furness stepped up a gear and began bombarding Pendle with dangerous balls. A series of classy corners by Chris Kitch, struck cleanly with a cheeky inward swerve, ended with Adam Williams and Paul Cudihee, with an elbow then a chest, putting Furness 2-1 up. Grit, Determination and a series of classy corners leave Furness with 13 points from 6 games. If Furness win their two remaining fixtures against Graduate and Fylde there is a good chance they could win the league. #MAKINGHISTORY

A match report for the A’s and a Patriot’s round up will be in Furst Wk.10!

Not the end for Action For Happiness

Action for Happiness is a worldwide movement of people committed to building a happier society. This simple yet awesomely fun idea found its way to Lancaster University throughout Week 6!

We had a fun filled week of Happiness Challenges in which each day revolved around a certain happiness challenge, which simply put encouraged people to create happiness for those around them! The challenges were as follows, buy someone an unexpected gift, write someone a letter, host a tea party, write down three things you are grateful and cook someone a meal. Each day we had the Action for Happiness team in Alexandra Square 12-2 handing out things to help with that days challenge, much free sweets and tea was handed out to very happy recipients! Who doesn’t love free food! We were also asking you guys what made you happy, with many interesting answers as a result. Personal favourite being bacon and Harry Potter! Then let’s not forget the free hugs campaign, even Loud Bus Guy got a hug from our team!

There was then, not one…but TWO happy hours in Trev which meant many Furnessians enjoyed some lovely drinks deals and then free entry into Sugarhouse!

It was a lovely week and I want to say a personal thank you to everyone who pitched in to help make it the success it seems to have been, I couldn’t have done it without you guys! Here’s to hoping the happiness continues, still keep checking the facebook page etc…. we’ll undoubtedly keep spreading the happiness!

Some cracking results for our sports teams this week!

Netball:

Fantastic results this week for Furness netball with both teams securing a win! The Bs edged a close match against Grad to win 22-18, won under tough circumstances with two girls going off injured!

The As were subject to a demoralizing loss to Lonsdale last term and were determined to make amends, this drive paid off with Furness winning 40-28, putting them in a strong position in the league

Footy:

The B’s won convincingly on Sunday against a strong Lonsdale. Going in as underdogs, and hungover underdogs at that, Furness battled back against a physical side. Furness took the lead early into the second half through a mesmerising cross by left back Andy Moss (face of Hugo Moss) and found the head of captain Chris Kitch who put away an extremely difficult header, but followed such a great goal with such a banterless celebration. The second goal came from play-maker Zac Harries. Furness were awarded a free kick just outside the penalty area, a perfect position for Zac to have a shot. He curled it gracefully into the top corner leaving the keeper with no chance, we expected nothing less from that gifted left foot. Lonsdale were not out of the game, Dan Hunt gave away a careless penalty, almost as if he wanted to make the game interesting.. But the Lonsdale midfielder struck the post and was left sat on the ground crying, a satisfying sight for all involved. Furness stayed strong throughout and deserved the 2-0 victory they received.. 10 points this season already makes them the most successful Furness B team in history since records began!

Carter Shield:

This week it’s Basketball, get down to the sports center for 12:45 if you fancy shootin’ some b-ball outside of the school 😉

Make sure you get down and support all of your college sport!

furness sports

Football:

The B’s had a friendly on Sunday against Fylde, although this certainly wasn’t played like one. Crunching tackles from central midfield and solid defending and the back ensured a deserved clean sheet. Super striker Richard Orford was the main man up top for the blues, he held the ball up brilliantly and played exceptionally well as a one striker. Score: 3-0 Furness. Kitch Orford and Cuddihee all scoring for Furness.

The A’s got their first win of the season against Cartmel after lacking fortune in previous fixtures. The first half was tough as the wind was strong and against them which proved a big factor throughout the game. Furness defenders stood strong throughout the half and held their ground to enter half time at a promising 0-0. Furness knew they had the advantage going into the 2nd half, however few chances were created at first. It took a bursting run from right back Cam Glennon to drill a cross into Mike Tyers to secure the first goal. The second goal was some thing special, a long curling and looping shot (cross) from Rick Kotarski rubbed salt into Cartmel’s wounds. Ste Lyddon, the big lump in midfield, made his way into the opposition’s penalty area and produced a 8/10 dive to win Furness a penalty! George Shilton calmly as ever stepped up to fire home the victory! 3-0 Furness well deserved and one up on Cartmel ahead of Patriots!! MOM Tyers who worked his socks off and posed a constant threat to Cartmel’s back four. Special mention to Jonny Horsely having a fantastic game on debut.

Netball:

The Bs lost on Wednesday against a strong Bowland side but put up a really good fight with a weakened squad! And on Tuesday night the As won, beating County 30-26 after being 17-21 down at the end of the third quarter, absolutely annihilated them 13-5 in the last quarter! Lauren Heaven picking up woman of the match!

New Equal Opportunities Officer

We regret to announce that Sarah Dowd, one of your equal opps officer has decided to resign so that she can dedicate more time to her degree. It is unfortunate that we have lost a member of the team this early on in the term, and we thank Sarah for the work she has already done. Nevertheless we now have an exciting opportunity for a member of the college to join our team! We need a new equal opps officer from weeks 4-8, if you’re interested keep checking the Facebook Page as we will release more information later this week!
