Furness College

Trev’s Times – WEEK FOURTEEN

Back again for week 14 folks! Hope you lovely Furnessians are all well. Valentines day is fast approaching, and pancake day, but most importantly the 15 Hour! I know what I’ll be spending my student loan on (pancake mix). Anyway, got a lot of stuff coming up for you guys in the next couple of weeks.

15 Hour Bar Crawl 

 Furness’ favourite bar crawl is back, and once again, it’s 15 hours! Keep Saturday 17th February open (week 5) and watch this space for all info, including this term’s theme and ticket sales. Coming soon!

Valentines Social! 
Your plans for Valentines day have been made! Furness is joining County College on the 14th for the Cuff Me Up Challenge! Lancaster’s own Drag Queen ‘Candy Cain’ will cuff up 15 new couples to compete in a series of challenges across County bar and Lancaster’s gay bar ‘D2bar’. Win free drinks and entry to D2 and the Sugarhouse (if you manage to stay cuffed, that is!) Want to get involved? Sign up at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/62JZFW9 or check out the event page

Healthy Living Breakfast

On Friday, our Welfare team have organised a healthy living breakfast, so you guys can come down, switch your Coco pops for some free healthy food, and ask all your welfare questions. Also, one of our sports officers – Tom, will be joining us to give all kinds of advice on exercise, sports, and generally keeping fit. Furness Foyer, 11am – 2pm.

Staff Union Strikes 

For those who aren’t aware, a union that represents many members of staff at Lancaster University has called on its members to strike for 14 days. This may disrupt your timetable. Though your department will provide information, you can find out more on the strike and how it affects you here, and can email your questions and concerns to strikequeries@lancaster.ac.uk
