Good day one and all,
I can’t believe I’m already half-way through my degree, and at the start of week 16! Plenty of fun, interesting and life changing things going on, but as per, the joke.

Action for Happiness Starts Today!
Action for Happiness is a worldwide movement of people committed to building a happier society. It is a simple, but powerful idea. We’re not proposing anything new, just promoting the need to prioritise that which makes people happy. People need to care less about what they can get for themselves and more about the happiness of others. This is why Lancaster University is having an Action for Happiness Campaign. Let’s join together and spread the happiness!
Patriots Cup all kicks off 1st March! The Patriot’s is our annual sporting competition with arch-nemesis (and frankly worst ) college Cartmel! It’s a great chance to play some ridiculous sports and represent Furness.

More information about how you can get involved will be coming soon!
Some cracking results for our sports teams this week!
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
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!
