Hild Bede SRC


Freshers' Reps

These guys and girls will devote themselves to ensuring you have an amazing fortnight. Led by Emma Cave, they will be dancing around Durham in bright red t-shirts, making sure things run smoothly and offering you plenty of great chats, help and advice. Characters around college, the Freps are here to help you settle in and feel at home Hild Bede style!! Their Hild Bede shirts were earned through a rigorous election process which included showing off their signature dance move on stage and looking after ‘drunk’ exec members, and they are on hand almost 24hrs a day throughout Freshers’ fortnight with the Exec.

Having loved the fresher experience herself this year, Emma cannot wait to help everyone enjoy their first taste of Durham university, in particular life at Hild Bede. If you met her at the open day you'll know she is a helpful, outgoing and friendly person who is constantly smiling! She will be working closely with Sarah and Nemo to bring you the best fresher's experience possible. Emma is highly involved in college and also all things dance, drama and musical theatre across the university.

Jack Barrass

  • Elected at

Jack is in the football and cricket clubs so is keen to chat to anyone about the sporting side of uni life, and will be happy to give advice on anything Economics-related, including an honest evaluation of the first-year modules! Despite having more contact hours than the average social scientist, he still makes it out at least 4 times a week at the cost of not seeing many hours of daylight!

Bethan Griffiths

Bethan’s determination to never let her Sociology degree get in the way of her real education means that she’s the perfect person to help Freshers navigate Durham’s nightlife (and feel free to ask her questions about sociology too!) She’s DU Archery Club’s publicity officer, works in the Union Society’s bar and knows enough people to be able to find out the answer to any questions.

Susannah Giles

  • Elected at

Suzie is a well known face behind the bar in college. She’s always guaranteed to give a great smile and some even better banter. Having played with the Hild Bede mooses for a year, Suzie would be a good person to talk to about all that is women’s football.

Catherine Gavan

  • Elected at

Ailis loves a good dress up so she’ll be a great person to have around in Freshers’ Week to get everyone involved and having a good time! She’s also a bit of a chatterbox so if you fancy spending time with someone who’s easy to talk to, give her a shout.

Carolyn Wilson

  • Elected at

Carolyn or “Cags” has been at Hild Bede since Noah built the ark. (Well maybe not quite that long, but 5 years is still a long time!) Cags knows anything and everything about college and has done an undergrad, masters and is now doing her PHD here. She is also captain of the uni women’s rugby team so watch out!

Thomas Nash

  • Elected at

As the SRC’s assistant welfare officer, he’s here to help anyone who wants to speak to a male welfare officer or just fancies a chat when Kate’s not around. He has coxed the HB men’s team at Henley so is a great person to ask about anything to do with rowing! Look out for him exhibiting his enthusiastic dance moves at every opportunity to get everyone on their feet and getting to know each other!
