Hello, my name is Chris West and I wish to run for the role of MCR Treasurer next year.
I am currently in my second year of a PhD in Chemical Physics, having also completed my degree at Trevelyan. I have considerable experience both in college finance and in the MCR in general. Over my stay at Trevelyan, I have held the roles of JCR Finance Committee member (10/11), JCR Assistant Treasurer (11/12), Treasurer of TAFS (11-‐present) and MCR Treasurer (12/13). In addition, I have also held the role of MCR Chair this year.
The responsibilities of the MCR Treasurer with respect to the University are going to change significantly as we become a DSO. As such, I believe that my previous experience in the role will allow the financial running of the MCR to continue as these changes come into effect. With the changes in the election timings also coming into effect this year, I believe that my knowledge of the day-‐to-‐day functioning of the MCR will be an asset to the incoming year.

We invite you to celebrate the last academic year at our annual Postgraduate Ball on Saturday 2 August at Caedmon Hall, College of St. Hild and St. Bede.
The Ball is an evening of entertainment which is open to all taught and research postgraduate students (and guests). Beginning at 18:00, you will enjoy a drink on arrival, followed by a three-course meal, including a glass of wine. Entertainment will be provided following the meal, by an excellent local band and a DJ. Other entertainment will also be available throughout the venue.
Tickets cost £38.50 and are on sale until noon on Friday 25 July 2014. Purchase your ticket now here.
The next Wallington trip will be from Friday 8th to Sunday 10th August (leaving late afternoon on the Friday and arriving early evening on the Sunday). We will be continuing work on the West Woods trail (hopefully doing some wicker work in the story area) as well as other activities. Sign up will be opening nearer the time.
MCR members are allowed to use all the pantries in college to store your food and cook in. Pre-sessional students do not arrive until 23rd August so until then feel free to use another pantry if your fridge space is limited.
MCR members can also use K kitchen (on K1) to cook in. See your e-mails for more details including the K kitchen code.
You may also find some leftover food and communal items (in the communal items box) which you are welcome to use.
Starting tonight we will be running a weekly film night on Wednesdays starting at 8pm in the Mowlam room.
Everyone is welcome to come along. If you have any suggestions for films, please post them on the MCR facebook group or e-mail one of the Exec who can pass them on.
Every Thursday night Ustinov puts on a Pub Quiz starting at 9pm in their Fisher House bar. It only costs £1 to enter so if you’re interested I’d encourage you to attend.
The MCR has bought a Wii sing (karaoke) set which comes with microphones and a selection of songs you can sing along to. It is in the Mowlam room and please feel free to use it.
