ROSES!!!

You might want to put revision to one side this weekend because it’s time to prove that ROSES are definitely RED! After several wins in the Men’s running and rowing, Lancaster are in the lead 15-9! Well done you guys! The equestrian event will be on Wednesday, and the rest will go down on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Good luck to everyone competing, the whole uni is behind you! Check out the Roses timetable here
