Green Tip of the Day
Be careful of skin and hair products that claim to be organic. Regulations on whether these products are organic are far less stringent and many claim to be organic despite a tiny portion of the product being so.

A message from your summer ball chairs
We are delighted to announce that Josephine Butler's Summer Ball this year will be 'Vintage Hollywood' themed. This year the event will be held for the first time at exciting new venue Newcastle Racecourse, and will have a decadent, glamorous feel. We have a huge array of entertainment from the sweet sounds of a Rat Pack singer during the meal to up and coming indie band Kassoma to get you dancing afterwards. We also have three fantastic theme park rides, including one for all the thrill seekers out there which has never graced a college ball until now. Add to this a casino, shadow cutter, fire pits, DJs, karaoke and lots of free food, and you'll have no problem finding ways to keep yourself amused until the famous survivors' breakfast at 5am. A full list of ents will be emailed out shortly so you can see exactly what we've got in store for you.
To make sure you do not miss out get yourselves down to the main floor of the DSU at 9am on 10th May, armed with your sign-up sheet and payment (either cash or cheque – payable to Josephine Butler College JCR). One person can sign up 4 people so a full table of 10 requires 3 people to queue up. The menu is as follows:
Ham Hock and Herb Ballotine served with an Apple and Spiced Pear Relish
and Frisée & Rocket Salad
served with a Bloomer Platter per table with Butter
Roast Pork Loin with Belly Pork, Dauphinoise Potatoes,
Roasted Apple Purée and Gateau of Vegetables
Crunchy Chocolate Torte
with Winter Berry Cream
Tea or Coffee
Half a bottle of wine
Vegetarian/Dietary requirement options will be available and will be emailed out as soon as possible.
Please do not forget to write if you are vegetarian or have any dietary requirements!
We still proudly offer the cheapest Summer Ball tickets of any college! Numbers are limited so make sure you're on time to sign up!
See you there!
