I had a meeting about disciplinary procedures on both the SU and University’s side – making them robust and outlining victim support in them

Blues Awards

Last week we had the Blues Awards, where members of the sporting community at Bath come together to celebrate a year of sport. It was a fantastic evening where we recognised the amazing achievements and commitment that our students bring to sport.

Preparation for next year

Each year our sports clubs have to fill in forms to handover to the next committee (budget and facilities requests etc). I’ve been working to make this process easier and more useful for our clubs based on feedback we’ve had.

Male Mental Health Meeting 

I had a great meeting with some members of a team that won £250 at the recent One Young World event, to run a project around male mental health, the impact of toxic masculinity and how we can use sport to tackle the issues. It’s early stages but I’m looking toward to seeing it develop over the next few months!

1. Ramadan Celebrations

As part of our Ramadan celebrations (the muslim holy month) we had the most amazing iftar with our student community which was well attended by over 100 students. We hope to make this bigger and better next year as Ramadan moves into the academic year and to be having it every Friday.
