Hild Bede SRC


Exec

Though the college provides a great deal for the students of Hild Bede, it is the SRC Executive Committee (or Exec) who deal with the student aspects of college life, as well as much of the pastoral and administrative provision within the college. At the head of the Exec is the President, a Hild Bede graduate who has opted to work for one year on behalf of the students. The other eleven Exec members work alongside her and this branches out into a number of Non-Executive Officers whose workload is less but still important.

Sarah Unwin

Sarah sleeps, eats and breathes Hild Bede. Having graduated this summer in Law, Sarah has spent the last three years firmly involved in student life. She has captained the women’s rugby club, helped to organise two college ski trips and spent a year as the SRC Clubs and Socs Officer, overseeing all of the college student societies. Sarah is a full time employee of the SRC, which makes her on hand to all students almost 24 hours a day throughout term time. Sarah is ultimately responsible for the running of the SRC and leading her team of executives. In doing this Sarah represents Hild Bede students both within the college (liaising with staff) and on a university wide level. Along with her exec, Sarah will make sure you have an unforgettable freshers’ week and are suitably welcomed into the college community. Sarah is friendly and approachable and always has time for everyone so make sure you come and say hello! She can usually either be found in the SRC Office, the President’s flat, in the bar, or just generally around college.

While at Hild Bede Tom has been the SRC chairman, helped to organise two epic college balls, been Head Frep and was once rumoured to be heading up a new Star Wars/ Sci-fi society….

Welfare Campaigns Officer

Welfare Campaigns Officer

Katherine Newton

  • Elected at Epiphany 3 by online vote

If there was a prize for the most kind-hearted, compassionate person it would undoubtedly go to Kate. Quite a fortunate coincidence really considering she is responsible for student welfare within the SRC. However, she’s no push over as proved by her being this year’s captain of Hild RFC! Kate’s role is to raise awareness about welfare campaigns, issues and events in college Kate is there to point you in the right direction if you ever have a problem which you would like to discuss or if you need any welfare information, no matter how trivial it may seem. She also is responsible for sexual health supplies in college.

Jess is the one to go to for any info if you want to join a club or if you’re interested in setting up your own club (yes you can do that!) Jess is always busy but always has time for a smile and a laugh. You’d be likely to see her working behind the bar in the Vern, having a good run around on a rugby pitch or in print form writing for the university newspaper, Palatinate. Jess is the link between all of Hild Bede’s many societies, Team Durham and the SRC. She will keep everyone updated on the progress of sports teams and other societies and is in charge of getting all of Hild Bede naked… yes in calendar form!

The Vern is one of the main focal points of college life and as it is by and large a student run bar, Harriet’s the person to talk to if you want anything changing, be it the drinks we serve, the television programmes we show or any other entertainment we can put on for you. Any keen female footballers out there? As club captain of the Mooses, Harrie would be the one to call!
